Week 2 /Digital Receipt 2

Posted by Barthendrick on

Usually when anybody’s outside you see a lot of billboards advertisement commercials on LED screens and everywhere. The main thing you see in a lot of these things are  companies trying to convince you to buy an item or donate money to a cause or visit a certain location. Now this is a tactic of persuasion which is seen in our daily life but a lot of us don’t really notice it but that’s what a lot of big companies do. Their job is to use rhetoric to try to convince an audience to get their product or spend money on them and that’s one thing we don’t notice but it’s using our daily life and I find that very important for English and writing in general.  We have to do this so we can hook our readers on to whatever we are wring about or hook the audience on to what we are presenting.

After reading the response by Ayesha, I was able to understand we use rhetorical analysis in our daily lives. This can be seen through social media and how we communicate with others epically friends and family.
After reading the response by Anniel, I was able to understand how rhetoric is seen everyday. We see this in ads on tv and social media, billboards and other places. This is primarily used in advertisements because their goal is to persuade you to use their product or donate money to their cause.

Digital Receipt 7/ WLLN Reflection

Posted by Barthendrick on

Reflection – The audience I targeted was teenagers and adults under 22. I felt that sharing this story was very important to people because it shows a lot of character development not only for me but for others also. I chose to write about this it shows the significance of tv shows/movies for children. It can help them understand languages and the environment they are in faster than a lot of other ways of teaching language and it help them build a personality that they want. I mean we can all remember who we anted to be like growing up with tv’s and movies. A lot of the things we said came from these sources.

Language and literacy are used in everyone’s life, and it is around the globe. This allows us humans communicate with each other, learn more about ourselves and the world around us, and helps our character development.

            Growing up PBS Kids and other kids’ channels such as Noggin/Nick Jr played a role in learning English. I was born in the US, but both my parents are from Haiti. At home they would barely speak English with us since that isn’t their primary language making Haitian Creole the first language I spoke. It wasn’t until I was around 4 years old when I started speaking clear English so that other people could understand me. These channels gave me the ability to communicate with people other than my family and start making friends as a child.

Some shows that helped me learn how to speak are nothing but classics everyone should know. Mickey Mouse, Electric Company, Cyberchase, etc. But I also watched a lot of movies with my dad such as Boyz in da hood, Coming to America and listened to music a lot. Focusing on a lot of words being used in entertainment industry allowed me to speak better and learn better. I believe that if English is not your first language, watching films, shows, and listening to music is an amazing way to learn a language and their culture. It played a key role in my development and communicating with others.

Technology cannot be blamed for how this generation is writing. It is clear that over time wiring changes and you can see that from every century. Humans are adapting to what they have and with adaptation always comes change. My question is that did humans in the 1700’s or 1800’s say writing isn’t as good as it used to be?
