Watch “The Cow Who Wanted to be a Hamburger” in the Kanopy database in our Library and write responses to the following:
- What visuals do you find the most compelling/thought provoking in this writing?
- What rhetorical appeals do you think gives these visuals strength?
- What details in the language gives you an indication of the writer’s perspective?
- What line of reasoning do you see the writer presenting/developing/advancing in the video, and how does it compare to the reading?
When answering these, think about using full paragraphs, and quoting passages from the text that comes to mind that help support your thoughts. Cite sources in MLA format.
If you want, you can incorporate your own response to the reading in response to someone else, which means not everyone has to start off with those initial questions. Doing this might make this more of a conversation with exchanges of ideas. Please make your first post by Thursday, and follow up in another thread by the end of Sunday. Both posts should make it clear what you’re responding to, specifically, and be in full paragraphs.
