In your RWS 305W class this semester you have read and discussed four texts concerning observations of the labor market in general and the workplace in particular. These readings, intended to provide sociocultural filters through which the work place can be viewed and evaluated, include the following:

    • “The “Three Jobs of the Future,” by Robert Reich (in the course reader available from the Aztec bookstore)
    • “The Big Earners and the Big Losers,” by Tyler Cowen (in the course reader available from the Aztec bookstore)
    • “Serving in Florida,” by Barbara Ehrenreich (in the course reader available from the Aztec bookstore)
    • “Class in America—2012,” by Gregory Mantsios (in the course reader available from the Aztec bookstore)


1. Read “The Three Jobs of the Future,” by Robert Reich.

2. Write an analysis of Reich’s chapter, making sure you cover all the following questions, although not necessarily in the order they appear here.

    • Introduce Reich and title of his chapter. Describe briefly what the chapter is about and explain Reich’s purpose in writing it.
    • What is Reich’s main claim—stated in your own words? What reasons does he give to support this claim?
    • Who is Reich’s audience?
    • What does Reich want the audience to do or feel as a result of reading this chapter (for example: change their minds/opinions, vote in a certain way, broaden their understanding of a subject, give money to a cause, take some other action?)
    • Explain the rhetorical situation/context/larger discussion of Reich’s topic: the diversity and changing nature of the global labor market and its influence on the American work place. What are the key concerns regarding this issue? Use the other chapters you have read in class to help you understand the context of this topic as you explain each of the other authors’ claims, the supporting ideas they use to develop their arguments, and how their arguments relate to Reich’s arguments.
    • Identify at least two (2) rhetorical techniques/strategies/appeals Reich uses to persuade his intended audience. Provide examples from his chapter and explain why he uses these strategies. Does he more heavily rely on one type of technique over others? Why does he do this?

3. In the second part of your rhetorical analysis paper evaluate the extent to which all four of these readings have influenced your views about the diversity and changing nature of the global labor market and its influence on the American work place. Evaluate the credibility and sufficiency of the evidence used to support each argument as you address the following questions:

    • How have your views changed as a result of reading these chapters?
    • Which argument(s) most influenced your views?
    • Do not simply talk about how you feel about the American labor market. You must explain your views in reference to how they have been influenced by the arguments and information in the readings.

The goal of this module is for you to apply all of the rhetorical analysis skills you refined during Modules 2 and 3, and practice your new skill of framing analysis in order to effectively produce a real world document relevant to your future career goals.

Motivation. Based on your personal purpose (e.g. finding a job, shaking down a company, entering graduate school, or saving time and doing what’s easiest) select one task from the following four that will make your “Q2” a better place [ Smile ]:

(1) Business letter of application {official name for cover letter} and two résumés (one complete generic {laundry list resume} and one targeted to a specific job (see Key 27 in Keys for Writers, or a resource of your choice (find a site tailored to your career), or begin at (Links to an external site.))
(2) Consumer oriented business letter or business plan (i.e. complaint or compliment letter; advocacy letter) (see Key27b, download, and more at (Links to an external site.) ///for advocacy letter advice.
(3) One each of the 30-minute “Analyze an Issue” task and the 30-minute “Analyze an Argument” task for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), {or some LSAT prep-analyze test questions or a personal statement}. See (Links to an external site.) (click on the link called Pool of Issue/Argument Topics); also peruse the other pages on the GRE website. See helpful grad related documents.
(4) Extension of your other Module 3 project for a business plan, personal statement, etc. that you and I agreed upon via e-mail or your Module 3 Journal entry.

Part I.
Your first task is to select which of the four above documents you will compose. For the résumé and cover letter, identify an actual company & job to apply for (include the link on your first page when you upload your final version). Do framing analysis as relevant to your goal.

Part II .
Identify your audience characteristics as relevant to your rhetorical situation {age, gender, background, education, occupation, political affiliation, beliefs, subject area knowledge, and discourse community (see Key 1d and Key 28b, or the end of Module 2 K+B CRQ#2


Part III.
List and discuss the rhetorical strategies you will use to engage your targeted audience {document structure, document format, diction, sentence structure, organization, development types, appeals (ethos, logos, pathos), purpose strategy, avoiding or analyzing fallacies}. Discuss these relevant to your framing analysis.

Part IV.
Demonstrate your audience analysis and selected rhetorical strategies to fit the target frame in your composed document selected from the types in Part I. This means to actually do in your documents what you say you will do from your analysis.

Prompt: Craft documents corresponding to one of the four tasks you chose. On page one, write a reflection/plan covering Parts I through III above. The next pages will be your actual documents. Construct a single PDF or Word file with your documents. Your reflection should come first. If you are doing the résumé/cover letter, make your targeted letter and résumé pages 2 & 3, and put your generic résumé last. For example, a resume option for Module 4 will look like:

Page 1: Reflection about parts I-III above. Who did you target? What is their frame? What strategies did you use to match their frame? etc.
Page 2: Cover Letter
Page 3: Targeted Resume
Page 4: Generic Resume

If you have documents other than the resume/cover letter, replace the above pages with the relevant document(s). For example, a personal statement would replace pages 2-4.

Criteria for Evaluation: Successful projects earning a “C” will accomplish the following tasks:

(1) Reflect thoughtful rhetorical strategies for your targeted audience based on your thoughtful framing analysis.
(2) Reflect depth and breadth of preparation, such as what you did in Module 3.
(3) Produce a realistic text that will lead toward accomplishment of your goal.
(4) Use appropriate language, structure and grammar for your writing situation.

Learning Outcomes:

→→Evaluate complex print, digital, and multimodal texts that engage significant academic, professional, or civic issues;
→→Analyze and apply rhetorical principles appropriate to different purposes and goals, within specific disciplinary, professional and civic communities;
→→Research and contribute to specific areas of inquiry by evaluating, synthesizing, and integrating strategies and sources appropriate to genre;
Adapt and employ conventions to communicate with diverse audiences who are members of or affected by a specific area or discipline;
Compose texts reflecting the above descriptors, working individually and collaboratively, through processes of drafting, critiquing, reflecting and editing.
