Tingle starts this by using Newkirk to reinforcing his argument and proving that he is not alone with being vexed by class, “I take Newkirk a step further to assert that commonplaces, as verbal summations of belief”, not only does Tingle effectively reinforces his argument; But, he adds to it which adds development to his whole argument. Furthermore, Tingle also uses Nancy Welch in a similar manor of Newkirk to add to his argument and point out he is not alone with his opinion, “Taken together, Newkirk and Welch hint at the depths of vexation inventing evokes in me”, using Nancy and Newkirk’s similar opinions that Tingle has, overall adds credibility and strength to the argument Nicholson 3 Tingle attempts to make. Near the end of the article Tingle also uses Lareau views on the working class household the same as his own, “Lareau notes, significantly less talk occurs in the working-class home.”, emphasizing Tingle’s past points on the working class home, this confirms his argument and brings more credibility to his personal stories throughout the article. Repeatedly, using another author’s opinions to fortify his own, Tingle effectively uses Ethos to argue his
Melville strategically uses architecture in his short story, “Bartleby the Scrivener” to demonstrate the disengagement between social classes that capitalism produces. In the story, the narrator, representative of the upper class, controls the actual physical partition separating him and the scriveners, representative of the lower class. In the same way that he controls the sliding doors, the lawyer manipulates religion and economic factors to control the separation between him and Bartleby. Architecture is also a part of Bartleby’s characterization; he is always staring at a brick wall. Melville is acknowledging Bartleby’s inability to conquer the brick wall.

Furthermore, he employs students' perspectives to widen the audience's viewpoints concerning the subject matter. These first two devices, instructors’ opinions and students’ perspectives, collaboratively ensure the audience to better understand the standard of how the plagiarism must be addressed. Moreover, the third device, the opened-ended conclusion, gives authority to the audience to include their own unique way to solve plagiarism.
Moreover, students live under the shadow of their instructors who ensure the students remain inferior to them. Jacob established resistance on this culture and sees it as a cage that promotes social class. Instead, he advocates for a new culture where emancipation is key. Therefore, both writings are similar in that they are opposed to the existing culture and advocates for a new way of life.
Social and economic class is something we as Americans like to push into the back of our minds. Sometimes recognizing our class either socially or economically can almost be crippling. When individuals recognize class, limitations and judgment confront us. Instead, we should know it is important to recognize our class, but not let it define and limit us. In the essay, “Class in America”, Gregory Mantsios, founder and director of the Joseph S. Murphy Institute for Worker Education at the School of Professional Studies, brings to light the fact that Americans don’t talk about class and class mobility.
By adding the example, Haas and Flower were also able to support rhetorical reading and the difference it made between the readers. Haas and Flower then state the following: “While the student reader is mainly creating a gist and paraphrasing, the experienced reader does this and more – he then tries to infer the author’s purpose and even creates a sort of strident persona for the writer” [Haas and Flower, 177] The following quote is basically the description of the experiment, and explains the difference in the student reader’s response to the experienced reader’s
This type of beginning already tells us about the author’s feeling as being of a very strong opinion about his beliefs, enough to denounce the opposing side at the start, and do so in harsh language. After such a commencement, the author goes on for most of the work indulging in logical proof that the current system of education is not correct, but his ideas are. He does so in numerous ways, starting with making parallel’s between the students and the oppressed races of the world, and the teachers with the tyrants who wish to annul any personal desires of the students. He demonstrates this in several logical progressions, confirming that “the capability of banking education to minimize or annul the students’ creative power ... serves the interests of the oppressors” (214). The author tries to make parallels in the readers mind, which, being human, is against all that bears the name of “evil”, “oppressor”, and the such, to get the reader to feel remorse for the c... ... middle of paper ... ....
Argument requires tact. King retains an effective knowledge base in writing persuasively. His use of metaphors allures people and uses their imagination to convey his idea. His conciliatory tone, represented by pronouns, furthers his argument by regarding his oppressors with dignity. In dignifying his opponent, King dignifies himself.
It raises the issue of class- the townies are predominantly working class and misbehave, the greebos middle class and hard working.

To address us as readers, I noticed Gladwell takes various approaches to intrigue us as an audience. One of these approaches is to tell his thoughts through a story about various individuals who struggled to succeed. Another approach is through the use of analogy. Analogies are used to “argue from one specific example to another, reasoning that because the two examples are alike in many ways, they are also alike in one further specific way.” (Weston 19). Gladwell uses the use of analogy to compare the overall outcome of the story, which is that at a certain point how high your IQ is does not matter, to situations that his audience can relate to or know of such as
