So in our thesis we can include either our purpose or our message right?
The SPEAKER’S purpose/message
Ok thank you!
… don’t forget to add the rhetorical choices. According to the rubric, you must do both.
Yes. Got it. Thank you very much for all of your help!
I strongly suggest you connect each of the rhetorical choices to the speaker’s purpose. It’s not really an either/or situation. The thesis is supposed to be debatable (according to the rubric), so it should do more than just restate what words are on the page. It should present an argument about WHY those words are there and what the speaker is trying to do with those words.
Oh ok I think I get it. Thanks for the help! About to do a practice one for some last minute feedback
