Transcript: Today, I will be going over how to write a rhetorical analysis essay. This is an essay to expect if you are taking the AP Language Exam. To start with, you want to make sure you have a solid understanding of what some rhetoric strategies are. This will make it much easier in the actual process of writing the essay, as it will be easier to identify which strategies the author uses. Next, before you write a rhetorical analysis essay you must understand what the purpose of this type of essay is. The purpose is to analyze and explain the rhetorical devices used in the essay through their writing and persuasion tools by the writer in an attempt to interact with their audience. Remember, that you do not need to take a position on a controversy in this type of essay. Continuing on, when you write one of these essays, you will be given a sheet of paper with a short statement of background information and context and a passage that will be about one page long. The statement on top will have information such as who wrote the essay, when it was written, and the author’s purpose. Then, you will want to read the passage. As you read, keep an eye out for any rhetorical devices you find the author uses in their writing to try to convey their point. This is where knowing your rhetoric devices will be useful, as they will be much easier to identify. It’s also helpful to keep the author’s purpose in your mind, as that can often help you to notice devices that you may not have identified yet. The next step is to create an opening sentence. You want to write something that will catch your audience's attention, but still makes sense with the rest of your essay, and won’t be a drawback by distracting the audience. Along with this, you will want to add a few sentences of context and background information into your opening paragraph. Most of this information can be found in the statement on top of the passage. You can also include external information if you have any info that you think pertains to the essay. You will then want to write your thesis. You should have several strategies that you identified in the essay ready to write about in your thesis, laying out what persuasive tools used by the author you are prepared to analyze in your coming body paragraphs. After you complete your intro, you will be ready to move on to the body paragraphs. Remember to only analyze one rhetoric device per paragraph, otherwise it can become overwhelming for the reader. You will want to include an example of a rhetoric device used by the author, usually followed by a quote containing that snippet of the writing. Follow this with an analysis of why the author chose to use this specific persuasive tool to attempt to convince their audience and how it impacts the audience. In your analysis, make sure to tie it back to the author’s purpose and meaning as that’s a strong indicator of why they may have used that tool. Another reminder is to try to make sure to use transitions that flow nicely with your writing. To end your essay, you will want to include a conclusion. It is not required to include a separate conclusion paragraph. Do not feel like you have to put in this paragraph if you do not feel it will add anything new to your essay. If you think it will work best, you can conclude at the end of your final body paragraph. Your conclusion should reiterate the author’s purpose of their writing through the devices you previously analyzed. Congratulations! You now know the formatting for writing a rhetorical analysis essay! Make sure to brush up on your rhetoric devices and you’ll be all set for the essay! Good luck!

Starry Night is perhaps the most visually stunning of Van Gogh's work, here I analyse the painting, looking at the composition, and Van Gogh's situation when painting it. Most revealingly, we discover that what gave Van Gogh his distinctive use of colour was that he was quite possibly colourblind. References: "Was Vincent van Gogh Colour Blind? It Sure Looks Like It", Colin Schultz; http://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/was-vincent-van-gogh-color-blind-it-sure-looks-like-it-27576085/ "Van Gogh, Starry Night", Dr. Noelle Paulson; https://www.khanacademy.org/humanities/ap-art-history/later-europe-and-americas/modernity-ap/a/van-gogh-the-starry-night "Starry Night Analysis"; https://www.artble.com/artists/vincent_van_gogh/paintings/starry_night

At Amazon's Kindle Store... http://goo.gl/xobJFo WRITE AN A+ ESSAY: IT'S EASIER THAN YOU MIGHT THINK. I'm going to make a confession. I was a straight-A student in high school. I graduated summa cum laude from college. My senior thesis won the institution’s coveted essay-writing prize. Not thanks to raw brilliance, or dazzling talent. No, I knew how to write essays. You see, great essays aren’t necessarily written by the “best and brightest.” They're written by students who know the rules—from concept to thesis statement, from outline to final draft. Students who know how to get the best possible grade for the least amount of work. I’ll show you how you can, too. A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO CONQUERING YOUR NEXT ESSAY ASSIGNMENT My name is Jenny Sawyer. Over the past five years, I’ve been the girl behind 60second Recap®. I've invested thousands of hours helping teens understand classic literature. I’ve answered countless emails seeking help with essay assignments. I’ve guided individual students, one-on-one, through the process of crafting thesis statements and writing essays, testing and refining the techniques I used when I was in school. Strategies I employed to nail essay after essay. Most people think A+ essays require hours of hard work. Or genius. I’d always had a hunch they’d thought wrong. Now, I'm certain of it: YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A GENIUS TO WRITE AN A+ ESSAY I’ve read mediocre essays from brilliant students. Great essays from ordinary students. What sets those A+ essay-writing students apart? They know how to analyze the assignment to keep themselves on track. I’ll show you how you can, too. YOU DON’T NEED LONG HOURS TO WRITE AN A+ ESSAY The best essays rarely take the most time. In fact, some nearly write themselves. How? With the right kind of preparation: A+ essay-writing students organize their research and cut their workload by as much as half. I’ll show you how you can, too. FORMULAS ARE NEVER THE ANSWER, BUT... A+ essays are never formulaic. But they have a lot in commont. A+ essays start strong with crisp, provocative thesis statements. A+ essays support those thesis statements with well-chosen examples and tightly-reasoned arguments—the hallmarks of persuasive writing. A+ essays finish strong, with conclusions that locked the reader into agreement with the essay’s thesis. A+ essays are written by students working from a simple framework: the five-paragraph essay format. I’ll show you how you can, too. DON’T BE INTIMIDATED: IT’S A HEAD GAME, YOU KNOW Ready to supercharge your essay-writing process? You can when you “think like a prosecutor.” I'll show you how. I’ll also reveal the courtroom “trick” you can use to save yourself time and trouble while you craft a great thesis statement. You'll see how you can use the strategies of a criminal trial to speed you through each step of the essay-writing process, from the organization of your research, to the writing of your thesis statement, to the polish of your final draft. It’s the first time I’ve ever set this strategy to paper. Now it’s all here for you, just a click away. YOUR A+ AWAITS.

There are filmmakers we love and then there's Michael Bay. Even if you dislike him (as I do), Bay has something valuable to teach us about visual perception. This is an exploration of "Bayhem" — his style of camera movement, composition and editing that creates something overblown, dynamic and distinct. For educational purposes only.
