of grammar, syntax, and composition affect the assignment grade.

View “Ich Bin ein Berliner” (starting at 1:20) by John F. Kennedy and “Remarks at the Brandenburg Gate” by Ronald Reagan. Choose either the Kennedy or Reagan speech and
answer the following questions:

  • What was the
    purpose of this speech? Do you believe the speaker achieved this
    purpose?
  • What was the
    occasion of this address? How did the specific constraints and
    resources of the place, day, and circumstances help shape the
    speaker’s remarks?
  • Who was the
    audience for this address? What common traits did the audience
    share? In what way did the speaker adapt the speech to this
    particular audience?
  • Briefly research
    the background of the speaker. How did the speaker overcome the
    constraints and use the resources of being who he was in this
    situation?
  • What types of
    supporting material and reasoning did the speaker use in this
    address? Provide examples from the speech of the types you find.
  • What cultural
    values and beliefs did the speaker appeal to in the address? Provide
    examples from the speech to support your observations.
  • Drawing on one of the methods of rhetorical
    criticism discussed in this lesson, evaluate the speech.

You are expected to use scholarly
(peer reviewed) sources in your research. These include academic
journals and books. In particular, find a scholarly article that
helps you use the advance method of rhetorical criticism that you
have selected in developing your analysis of the speech you have
chosen. Use at least 2 scholarly sources in preparing this
assignment. Newspapers, available online, can provide supplemental
information, particularly with recent speeches that you will analyze,
but only use newspaper articles that were written around the time of
the speech; articles written much later tend to be historical
appreciations. Many government and non-government agencies no longer
publish official reports on paper, but their documents are available
online as primary sources. Other webpages, especially social media,
blogs, and news aggregators, lack the editorial review oversight that
makes published information reliable, useful, and acceptable.
Wikipedia can help you orient your academic search, but it is not a
scholarly source.
