email@example.com© 2009 Tracy Bridgeford Rhetorical Situation Identifying the Scope Identifying the scope of a rhetorical situation is the act of defining a perspective that sets boundaries for the content. It is the writers responsibility to create these boundaries for the reader. Boundaries can be set through tactics such as time place terminology adjectives jargon
firstname.lastname@example.org© 2009 Tracy Bridgeford Rhetorical Situation Scope Example TERRARIUM In preparation for enactment of the Enclosure Act of 2026, the director of the Enclosure Relocation Division (ERD) at the Institute of Global Design (IGD), plans to issue documents that educate the public about the various environmental dangers to citizens in preparation for moving inside. These documents will be filed, periodically updated, and archived in the IGD intranet.
email@example.com© 2009 Tracy Bridgeford Step 1: What is the specific situation the document will address? [identification] Given the seriousness of the environmental crisis, earth residents need to understand better the necessity of the enclosure. The goal is to educate these residents about the dangers of staying on earth. Step 2: What is the scope? [reification] For at least five years, wearing facemasks outside the home have become so familiar to residents that marketing efforts skyrocketed. These masks were soon sold in a variety of colors and patterns and styles that by 2026, residents seemed to have forgotten that their purpose is to save people from earth toxins not make them more beautiful when facing toxins. Determining the Rhetorical Situation Scope These steps should be considered before starting to write any part of the document. Mentioning beauty, provides a more specific focus on one of the consequences of these marketing efforts. Using verbs like understand and educated emphasize the purpose of the documentationto teach. Language like crisis and necessity help set the tone and can lead to the identification of the focus. Five years and facemasks set the time boundaries of the document by situating the discussion within a timeline and identifying the focus of that discussion. Pointing to the purpose of the masks further prepares the reader for a discussion about the role masks play in heath care. An adjective like marketing can be used to discuss greed as part of the consequences of an overpolluted earth.
firstname.lastname@example.org© 2009 Tracy Bridgeford Step 3: What rhetorical action is required? [response] The educational nature of the situation suggests that a white paper, newsletter, or a fact sheet or brochure might meet the needs of the audience. This assessment might change after completing audience analysis. Step 4: What are the constraints? [limitations] Reactions to the documents will likely involve varied responses: acceptance, rejection, hostility, or denial because humanity will be reacting out of fear to the fact that the earth is no longer its home. And because much of the world is based on money and ownership, some people may be reluctant to leave their homes. Determining the Rhetorical Situation Scope These steps should be considered before starting to write any part of the document. A white paperor position statement with supportmight be intimidating for the majority of residents because of its academic or marketing perspectives. A newsletter might be too long for certain information to stand out (e.g., dangers to health) or it might seem too informalsuch as a public opinion piecethat it wont be taken as seriously as it should be. A factsheet or brochure might be the best way to get and keep a residents attention because most people are used to receiving important information through this genre, especially medical information. Each of these responses require different rhetoric to be convincing. If the audience is angry, perhaps the writer should use stronger language that presents the information appear as the only decision; if rejection, they might try to flee; and so on…
