1 Demonstration and Explanation

2 Demonstration Provide examples of the rhetoric you’ve identified in your claim from the text Be sure you’re providing only the essential examples (too much quoting implies a lack of understanding of the rhetoric) Punctuate properly! “Commas and periods go inside the quotation marks,” Mr. Loo demanded.

3 Example Paragraph Both Goodwin and Dickens utilize words with negative connotations to make the reader feel dislike and even fear of the copious fog. Godwin writes, “…London was plagued by regular fogs from Stuart times on” (Goodwin 1). The use of the word “plagued” portrays the fog as a disease infecting London. Dickens chooses similar descriptions: “…it rolls defiled...” and “fog creeping into the cabooses” (Dickens 1). By using the words “defiled” and “creeping,” Dickens conveys a sense that the fog is a creepy, filthy, and unwanted mess.
