Discussion questions

For today’s discussion question, respond to the following prompts. Be sure to adhere to the guidelines for completing discussion questions (posted below):

Using specific examples from Tan’s “Mother Tongue” OR Lamott’s “Shitty First Drafts” respond to the following questions.

Find the author’s thesis statement (the essay’s main idea in his or her own words). Make sure the thesis statement covers the entire essay. Explain how the thesis statement is supported and developed throughout the entire essay.
Identify the different types of organizational methods (description, narration, etc.—often called rhetorical strategies) the author uses to help develop his or her essay. Note that the rhetorical modes (or essay length organizational methods) are identified at the top of Tan’s essay; however, I want you to examine the text at the paragraph level, as explained in the RFW readings this week. Consider what types of strategies are used within the essay, choosing from the list supplied in the RFW.
Looking at the rhetorical strategies the author uses, which strategy do you think is the most effective? Make sure to explain your reason as to why you think that one strategy is superior to the others when used in the text.
NOTE: When responding for participation, compare and contrast the rhetorical strategies used in the texts and the examples used to explain answers in order to ensure we stay on topic. Feel free to reference the readings from the RFW as well.
