How it feels to be colored

Understand rhetorical situations and rhetorical appeals, and analyze texts.Becoming an effective writer means learning to read like a writer.
Writers contemplate the writing of others through a rhetorical lens, and in this project, you will use these same
analytical skills to practice the work of reading texts critically by analyzing an article related to race and social
justice. In particular, you will be analyzing the text for what it reveals about the writer’s rhetorical choices and
the ways in which that writer interpreted and responded to their own call to write.
Here are some questions you might want to address in your textual analysis:
• What message is the writer communicating?
• Why is this message so important? What is this message in response to culturally or historically?
• What values and beliefs help construct the message?
