The first sentence identifies which section of the text you are discussing and the main idea of that section.
conveys the writer’s support for the main idea by identifying and providing a specific example for one rhetorical strategy used by the writer. [This sentence is repeated if you want to discuss more than one rhetorical strategy.]
You must make your "conversation" come full-circle... or triangle?!?!
Intro- Thesis Statement

Please, make sure you are answering the following in each body paragraph:
Practice: Listen & Look
Ronald Reagan, Presidential address Challenger
now... think of another strategy that Reagan uses in his address...
(Writer’s last name) (transition word) his/her (type of text) by (strong verb) that (main idea of this section of the text).
He appeals to the mournful emotions of the audience by admitting that he and Nancy are “pained to the core” (3), that today is rightfully a “day for mourning and remembering” (2-3), and that the accident is “truly a national loss” (4).
Reagan begins his tribute to the Challenger astronauts by acknowledging that the shuttle accident has appropriately postponed his planned State of the Union address and by expressing the depth of his and his wife’s personal grief.
He joins in this time of mourning in order to unify the nation and humbly admit that “we share this pain with all of the people of our country” (4).
The fourth sentence identifies the effect of the writer’s use of these rhetorical strategies on the audience.
This outpouring of emotion from the president conveys a calming tone that reassures the Nation that their grief is both understandable and proper.
Thus completing entire Triangle
Keep it brief, One-two sentences that restate what you said in your introduction.
