Rhetorical Devices and Thesis Confusion

I received conflicting information from two teachers and was looking for clarification. One teacher wrote that this was an acceptable thesis: “Thatcher appeals to the reader’s emotions by highlighting his lightheartedness and acknowledging his political achievements in order to commemorate Reagan’s memory and encourage the audience to remember how he was a great man and president.” This is the type of thesis that I saw as a “great” thesis on the youtube videos put out by AP, but it does not explicitly state the devices. The other teacher said that I need to select specific devices.
