Begin by discovering and researching a primary document, that is, a work of rhetoric drawn from the general areas and time period. The artifact may be a speech or any other document of persuasion such as a letter, essay, manifesto, or even visual art or music where applicable. In brief, the paper should criticize the document(s) in light of a rhetorical concept that can be drawn from movement theory, or from rhetorical theory and criticism. The finished paper should advance your thesis and support it by examining the artifact(s) in historical-critical context.Refer to: http://rhetoricalgoddess.wikia.com/wiki/Writing_Rhetorical_Criticism for more writing instructions please.As for reference, you do not have to quote directly from your references. You can list anything you think is related to your topic in your reference list without directly quoting from them. It should be a bibliography page rather than a works cited page. However, using a fair amount of quotes is always a good option too, its really up to you. I would say 3-5 quotes is perfect but again, its your choice. But please be sure to use primary text sources and peer reviewed/scholarly articles as your references. And NO PLAGIARISM please!!
