Helpful questions/prompts for each article:
(Keep in mind that these questions are open-ended and do not have to be explicitly answered in your essay. They are meant to help your pre-writing process!)
What are the key problems Alfie Kohn sees in the educational system? How does he choose to convey his arguments, and how does he structure his claims? How can you apply the rhetorical devices detailed in “Backpacks vs. Briefcases” or “Evaluating Appeals” to Kohn’s argument? To what extent does Kohn feel the problem has nestled itself in the educational system?
Near the end of her essay, “Ever Wonder if You Could Kill What You Eat,” Makenna Goodman says “Foodie labels don’t excite me anymore. I want to know the amount of sun, fresh air, and forage that animal got during its life. Organic, shmorganic, in other words. Give me the backstory.” Write an essay in which you analyze these claims more closely. What, for Goodman, is the key difference between the information provided by a label and the information gained by raising and killing an animal on your own? What makes knowing this backstory so important? How can you apply the rhetorical devices in “Backpacks vs. Briefcases” or “Evaluating Appeals” to Goodman’s article?
What is Fujii’s main claim in the piece “Watching Tokyo through the Eyes of Outsiders”? How can you apply the rhetorical devices in “Backpacks vs. Briefcases” or “Evaluating Appeals” to Fujii’s article? In the article, Fujii writes, “As these two Tokyos—one neon and innocent, the other shaded, more implicated—slipped before me, I fought a strange urge to claim a place in these films. What would it be like, I wondered, to let the Japanese speak in a foreign film about Tokyo?” Write an essay in which you analyze this sentiment more closely and how it shapes the article itself.
