2-Consider the strategy the author uses to make the argument. What rhetorical modes or strategies are being most used in this argument? Provide evidence from the text. Remember, an author may use more than one rhetorical mode!
3-What are your initial reactions to the essay?

These questions may become the topic for your major researched argumentative essay in this course.
