Journal 4: Practicing Rhetorical Synthesis
This journal entry will introduce you to synthesis and rhetorical analysis. Complete “Drawing Conclusions, Activity #3” (pg 117) using the links below as your texts (you will need to analyze both speeches separately and then consider them in relation to each other). I recommend both watching the speech and reading the transcriipt for each.
Speech #1: Michelle Obama 2008 Democratic National Convention speech video:
Michelle Obama at the 2008 DNC (Links to an external site.)
Michelle Obama at the 2008 DNC
Melania Trump 2016 Republican National Convention speech video:

**You can access the transcriipt through YouTube and read as you listen. Click on Transcriipt in the menu bar located under the video.

Your journal entry should include the following:
List questions you have for the text (min. 4): List at least four questions the texts have generated for you as a viewer/reader. These can be questions that you would ask about the content if you were conversing with the speaker(s) or questions you would ask if you were talking with an audience member. It’s a good idea to give yourself time markers or line numbers as references, if possible.
List points of interest in the text (min. 3): List at least three primary points of interest within this text that you would like to know more about or that you find particularly engaging concepts or ideas. It’s a good idea to give yourself time markers or line numbers as references, if possible.
List quotes/images/characteristics that you could use as evidence in a paper (min. 3): Provide specific quotes or images the texts use that you find particularly important (use time markers/line numbers to reference). If you include a characteristic of the text in this list, provide a brief descriiption of an example and a time marker or line number.
Arrangement (groups of information) Outlining; Source Visualization; Mapping. Show the organization of the speeches: Create categories that you would use to organize the above information into manageable chunks of data. Using the questions and points of interest as your guide may be quite useful in this task. Once you have created your categories, sort the above information into them. (You have at least 3 points of interest/questions that you’ve generated for each video. You can use any of these in multiple categories if needed)
Synthesized Summary and Analysis (2 paragraphs):
Craft a one paragraph summary that synthesizes the material provided in the speeches in order to describe some of the rhetorical conventions used when composing and delivering this kind of speech (i.e. ethos, logos, pathos).
The second paragraph of this synthesis will provide your position or opinion on the plagiarism debate that surrounded these speeches in July, 2016. [It might be useful to do a bit of research on the debated material, but it isn’t required for this synthesized analysis. Use your work above to help generate your position].

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
