Rhetorical Analysis of Leila Ahmed’s On Becoming an Arab.

English 104: Rhetorical Analysis Prompt: Place and Identity Compose a Rhetorical Analysis of Leila Ahmed’s On Becoming an Arab. This should be an argumentative essay with a thesis. You will need to complete two different tasks: (1) summarize the chosen text and (2) explain the author’s use of place in his or her theorization of identity. Therefore, it is essential that you first identify the author’s theory of identity, and then you analyze how the author uses geographical and spatial categories of place to support and make sense of their theory of identity. For example, how does Ahmed use place to theorize the identity of Arab? The analysis section of the paper should take up the vast majority of the paper and should analyze and argue for how the author uses place in theorizing identity. Guidelines: Your essay should be a minimum of 800 words, double spaced, 12-point font, 1-inch margins, and submitted on Blackboard. Assessment: You will be assessed on your rhetorical analysis of the text, which includes your interpretation and application of the rhetorical situation, the clarity and organization of your argument and thesis, your supporting details and evidence, and your summary of the text. You will also be assessed on your effective application of the genre (including all of its strategies, features, conventions, and forms). Finally, you will be assessed on your general organization, grammar, and sentence structure. (Please keep in mind, this is a first draft meant to showcase your skill in analysis and application of genre, so do not get bogged down on perfection, but you should also be showing marked improvement in basic structure and organization).
