so far this quarter, we have looked at strategies for using language effectively in both life and writing. You have read the work of several scholars who point out both strengths and pitfalls of particular strategies of communicating your ideas to other. For this essay, your job will be to explain a conflict and explore where the breakdown occurs and the consequences. To get started you can ask yourself the following question:Did the speaker/author make bad rhetorical choices? Was the speaker imagining something that they did not do a good enough job of asking the audience to imagine? Was the distance between the speaker and the audience too far? Did the author anticipate objections of a clearly defined audience?(These are examples to get you thinking-do not limit yourself to these ideas. )
You job us not simply to report what went wrong, but rather to explore, analyze and explain it, and finally be able to make an arguable claim about the consequences. you should be prepared to explain and gibe examples and cite at least two authors that we have read so far in class. you may use any other research that you would like to, but you must at very least cite form two of our authors.
– Have a clearly defined and specific language conflict
