Select a select a website for a product, service, or organization connected to your field, your projected profession or your personal interests and write a thesis-driven evaluative argument in which you examine the rhetorical strategies of the site.For example, if you travel, you might choose a budget vacation finder like Expedia (www.expedia.com) or Gate1 Travel (www.gate1travel.com). More locally focused interests might include the online presence of a Texas-based glossy magazine like Texas Monthly (www.texasmonthly.com), a local coffee roastery (https://xelaroasters.com) or a brewery (www.saintarnold.com or https://www.karbachbrewing.com/). You can also focus on a service like meal prep, car buying, or a delivery service. A charity might also be something you want to examine for this essay as well.Each of these websites is making an argument: “(You should) buy this” or “(You should)trust us” or “(You should) join us.” The purpose of this essay is to evaluate how effectively your site persuades viewers to “do this” or “do that” by analyzing and evaluating the rhetorical elements in the site.The paper must be 3 to 5 pages, double-spaced, font size 12, standard 1” margins and follow MLA format conventions. You must include the url of the website used. A successful essay will:• Bring readers into the context of the website, briefly summarize the website’s content, and make a claim (thesis) for the site’s rhetorical effectiveness or for the most significant rhetorical features of the site. A strong claim is both contestable – reasonablepeople might disagree – and predictive – it will set up expectations for the direction of your essay.• Develop your main points around specific criteria for evaluating the site. Consider how the site makes its argument, not whether or not you agree with the content. Analysis and evaluation rely on your objective judgments. Remember also that rhetoric encompasses any tools available for persuasion. Talk about the argument in terms of ethos, logos, pathos. Remember to state the criteria you’re using to evaluate the site. Observe and analyze the impact of the design and images used. Consider who might be the target audience.• Support your main points with concrete examples (evidence) from the website. To develop and support your own points, you will need to include visual features and details (color, design, and images) as well as short quotations from the site. You must include 2+ images and 2+ quotes pulled from your site to illustrate and support your argument. Think of your own ethos and log
