I’m studying for my Writing class and need an explanation.

For this 1-2 page response paper, please analyze the use of rhetoric in Shayne Koyczan’s poem “To This Day.” You can find the video here and the transcript here.

Start with your claim. Keep in mind you are arguing if the piece was or was not rhetorically effective with a summary of your reasoning. We didn’t get a chance to talk about how to write a rhetorical analysis claim, but it builds off what we discussed regarding how to craft a claim in general. Here is some information: Rhetorical Analysis Claim

Then, prove your point about the argument’s effectiveness by breaking down how Koyczan used the rhetorical appeals (ethos, pathos, and logos. Please do reference all three, even if you think one of the appeals was stronger than the others.

Please use good paragraphing and correct format for MLA papers, including a title that reflects your analysis in anywhere from 3-8 words.
