  1. Week 2, Class 2

  2. Kristof – “War & Wisdom” • let’s examine the rhetorical situation – see rhetorical situation handout – context,audience, purpose, subject. • Let’s begin with context

  3. What is the context – what was going on as Kristof wrote, and how does this shape his argument? How does our current context shape our interpretation?

  5. Genre • This image lacks genre, and thus its purpose, context and intended audience are hard to discern

  7. What is the genre of the Kristof text? • WHAT IS AN OP-ED? Usually placed on the page opposite the editorial page. Similar to an editorial, but represents the opinion of an individual contributor, guest or columnist. • Newspapers often publish editorial pieces that are in line with their editorial slants, though dissenting opinions are often given space to promote balance and discussion. • WHAT IS AN EDITORIAL? The editorialpage expresses the opinion of the editor, editorial board, or publisher of a newspaper. Usually no author name given – it represents the views of the paper/publisher. Sometimes called “letter from the editor,” and placed next to “letters to the editor” section. The page often also contains editorial cartoons.http://www.time.com/time/cartoonsoftheweek?pkw=PSTMGLTX052307CNND1081&google=yes • An average editorial is 750 words or fewer, and is argument-focused. They are intended to persuade – both popular audiences and elite audiences in government and business.

  8. KEY Op-Ed sources: New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, L.A. Times, Chicago Tribune. • Op-eds and op-ed columnists play an important role in debate about politics and public policy. Bloggers often respond to them, they shape debate on TV news shows, and many op-ed columnists also appear on tv news (and blog themselves). • EXAMPLE: http://www.dailyoped.com/ Displays 100+ major newspaper Op/Eds – great window onto the debates and key issues discussed by educated people around the country.
