Political Rhetoric Essay.
I’m trying to study for my Political Science course and I need some help to understand this question.
This is a short essay for my political rhetoric class regarding the 2016 presidential debates. The guidelines are listed below:
COMS 444 – POLITICAL RHETORIC
RESPONSE PAPER #2
Due Date: Mar. 6 by 11:59 PM
Points Possible: 25 points
Page Requirements: 2-3 pages (if header, factor that in to the length)
1” margins, double-spaced
Your paper should have an introduction, body, and conclusion. With that said, since the page requirement is short, your intro and conclusion should not be the entire first page.
With this paper, you are asked to summarize and analyze a portion of one of the 2016 presidential debates (or any other debate you’re familiar with). If you’d prefer to do something other than a debate, please check in with me before starting your paper.
Your body should include these two components:
Theories or concepts you may use include: Epideictic versus Deliberative analysis (Jamieson), the use of substance in the speech (Nelson), minstrel political themes in the speech (Sparks), Humor in Political Debates (Peifer and Holbert), Finding Her Voice (Bligh, et. al), Situating Trump (Ott)
Grading note: As you submit your paper, you will notice a comments section. In this section, submit a grade for yourself based on the rubric below. The prompt will have more information on what I hope you do with this prompt. I will average this grade with the grade I believe you earned. The rubric is on the following page.
Citation note: No reference page required, unless you use information outside of the class text. However, you must provide page numbers when you cite or discuss a portion of the readings. You should definitely be citing the reading to support.
