Where would I find an article to do a rhetorical analysis on?
For a rhetorical analysis, you are looking for an article:
- Where the author makes an argument of some sort
- So that you can decide how well the author makes his or her case
- Long enough that your analysis can take up the required number of pages
- That takes a strong position on a certain subject
Just what this subject should be is entirely up to you. You might try a search of CQ Researcher or Opposing Viewpoints in Context--they are both organized according to "hot" controversial topics--or you could do a Subject search of Academic OneFile for your topic of choice.
Off-campus you will need your Library Number from the back of your ID for the databases of articles.
