First, briefly summarize the main points of the text. Use what you learned about summary to help you. For example, don’t forget to include the title of the article and the author’s name right away. Also, focus on explaining (in about 3-4 sentences) the main argument of the text. In this part of your response, you should also identify the specific audience and purpose of the text. In other words, who is the author trying to reach with their text (do not say “everyone” – be specific!) and what message are they trying to communicate to this audience? Second, you analyze some rhetorical choices by the author, speculate on why the author made some of those choices and discuss whether those choices were effective.
