It just makes me very aware now, I see how one tries to prove their point. Considering I don't really watch TV, I listen a lot to music, and I am usually on my laptop on tumblr or twitter, realizing which rhetoric device they're attempting to portray.
This is most definitely something useful, especially outside English. I now know how to use certain rhetoric to my advantage, and point them out in my every day life. I do kind of feel like I am a part of this very elite, intellectual club now. I can just think to myself "Hmm, I know what you're trying to do here, getting all pathos on me."
I really liked learning about these rhetorics this week. I found it very informing and interesting. And this will be super helpful when we do our reflection on the debates explaining the rhetoric used in their answers or "promises". As well as it being useful in our progression 2 exercises (in which I am actually super excited for). Not only do I have a new found knowledge of rhetoric, I have also found out I'm kind of interested in politics. So I can't wait to debrief on the debates.
See you all soon! :)
