Rogerian Letter: Essay #1 Letter to the Author Instructions: After reading the articles; “The Corona-virus Generation Will Use Language Differently” by John McWhorton write a Rogerian (argument) letter that responds to the author’s argument: Remember the letter style is a genre of writing and your audience shapes the argument, determines your purpose and context. So you can begin with, Dear John McWhorton. Important: Read the entire “All About Arguments,” and accompanying handouts, to become familiar with argument styles and terms. Follow the Rogerian Style of Arguments and read how to write a Rogerian Letter. Keep in mind that a letter is a style or form, but the way he presents his ideas depends on organization of ideas using Rhetorical Modes/Patterns: illustration, narrative, process, argument (opinion), cause and effect, compare and contrast, description, definition, and classification. Please be sure to read and view all the related material for this assignment. Finally, the reason we are beginning with a letter style argument is that of all writing forms, a letter requires students to have a specific real person audience as they write. This will help later in other other essays, to understand the importance of audience, purpose, tone, language in writing. Even though this essay is in letter form, I expect students to follow MLA style: Times New Roman font, 12 point font, double-space sentences, 1″ margins, page number, and correct MLA style and placement of name, instructor, course and date. See sample on MLA Powerpoint. Your letter should be at least three pages (double-spaced) and be creative! Make things up, add videos or pictures, have some fun with it! Include other sources and mention them in your letter (see ‘Guidelines for Writing Rogerian/Essay/Letter’ below). Finally, after reading about What is an Argument in Writing think about what argument you are making about what you have learned and are sharing; and what is the opposing viewpoint to yours?
