Writing based on selected article/
1.Analysis of Scholarly Ethos:
Using this single text published in a professional and/or scholarly periodical associated with your discipline or major, you are tasked with analyzing its author’s use of “conventions of academic writing” and strategies for developing ethos. Identify multiple conventions used, examine why they were chosen, and analyze the effects they have upon the author’s target audience. If you have some insight on a particular failure of the author to establish her/his/their credibility as speakers on the issue/topic addressed in the selected text, you can explain that, as well. I do not suspect that this kind of criticism of the authors’ ethos will come into play, i.e., you do not have to find fault with your selected author(s).
Please include an appropriate introductory section, one that introduces your text and what you plan to accomplish in the analysis. Furthermore, make sure you have devised an analysis of the authors’ ethos that meets the demands of our expanded definition of ethos, looking at the variety of methods that academics use in their chosen discourse to advance a compelling argument.
- Your paper should be 4-5 MLA formatted pages.
- A Works Cited page is not included in this total but is required.
