Rhetorically Powerful


Hey all~

Today, we dive in further. Everyone has brought in a sample podcast they found on their own, and our task today will be to do a real-time listen of those, to identify rhetorically powerful sounds…or lack of sound used in these podcasts. We’ll spend the majority of class listening to a partner’s sample podcast, writing down each instance of:

  • rhetorically powerful sounds
  • rhetorically powerful silences
  • effective use of “voice” (could be tone or style)
  • effective use of questions vs. explanation
  • effective use of organization (intro, conclusion, a “thread” etc.)

As a result of our listening and discussion, here are the notes for what we said in class:
