Morals”535Promotes the series in the sense that it teaches many valuable life lessons to children. “Rowling is a great showoff… …this is a fault of the last two books” 528The author is giving Rowling her credit, but she sees that Rowling has an ego. Acocella compares the Harry Potter series to other children’s books 528The books have similar topic as other classic books. “Around 1:45 am I made it to the front of the line and was allowed to buy the “Goblet of Fire” 527It shows how dedicated the fans were. “The Potter story is a fairy tale plus a bildungsroman plus a murder mystery… …Harry saga” 527Introduces to the audience what makes the book.

6 Dialectical Journal Thesis (Purpose): Acocella argues that… “Biggest advance order ever……a single writer,” 526establishes the huge scale of the Harry Potter phenomenon and its potential influence “It made no sense … no sense at all” 529It shows how confused Harry was and how he wasn’t used to all of the powers and magic that was surrounding him even though he had it in him. “The great beauty of the Potter books Is their wealth of imagination, their sheer, shining fullness.” 530She uses literary terms to show her affection towards the book. “So Rowling’s books … … postmodernly” 528Acocella recognizes Rowling’s use of archetypes and approves of them even going as far as complimenting them. “The Hogwarts staff … … every half hour” 530Shows how Rowling has a huge imagination. “Then Dumbledore, Hogwarts wise head master, appear and tells Harry that the Mirror of Erised shows us not what is, but what we desire.’ 530Rowling is trying to tell us that we can’t get everything that we want. “Circumstance that resulted… … children best seller list.” 526This says that the book helped establish a children’s best seller list. Demonstrates influence.

10 In groups of three, respond to Questions about Purpose, Audience, and Strategies for the Bloom essay (p. 537). Today’s assignment:

11 Bildungsroman a coming of age story

12 How does the controversy about Harry Potter Joan Acocella discusses differ from the one we have discussed?

13 A good argument makes sense. For example, if Chewbacca lives on Endor, the price of tea in China is better than a canary. Argument is logical! An argument must make sense.

14 A good argument uses authority to persuade. "Aristotle’s ethos may be defined as the element of speech that presents the speaker as trustworthy; or from the point of view of the hearer, as the element that makes the audience regard the speaker as trustworthy" (Wisse, 1989, p. 33). Reference Wisse, J. (1989). Ethos and pathos: From Aristotle to Cicero. Amsterdam: Adolf M. Hakkert. Authority is Persuasive Your audience must trust you or your references.

15 Argument is Emotional This is why the puppy always wins.
