In 200-250 words, create a discussion post that addresses the question below:
In this week’s readings you learned about the rhetorical situation and how we can break down speeches into specific elements of occasion, audience, speaker, and speech. After watching the example speech of President Barack Obama’s speech after the death of Osama Bin Laden I want you to post a discussion of what you see are the:
- occasion – how did the speech address specific exigences or solve particular problems? How does the setting of the speech impact its reception?
- audience- what audiences are addressed and how does the speech address them?
- speaker – how does the speaker establish and create ethos?
- speech – what language choices are made that enhance the speech?
- For this feel free to do any background research you can on the moments leading up to the speech. Background and context: On September 11, 200
