 What useful information did you find in the introduction of this book?
 What would you disagree with or amend?
 What study/reading advice would you give to a student who wanted
to improve his/her skill level?
RHETORICAL MODES: EXAMPLE/
EXEMPLIFICATION

is usually a prevailing mode
 Example points to instances
 Uses particulars to get at principles
 Examples always used to support a thesis or main idea
 Ex: The author uses current and projected neighborhood
demographics to argue to lawmakers that they should
increase ESL services in local schools.
 Essays: “On Compassion” by Barbara Lazear Ascher
WEDNESDAY QUICKWRITE
