Rhetorical Analysis

Rhetorical analysis is a research method in which the researcher closely studies a text, speech or other form of media (such as an advertisement) to examine the interactions between the message giver and the audience. I have used rhetorical analysis techniques during my undergraduate classes of Public Speaking and Rhetoric of American Women at Stonehill College.
