Analysis of Scholarly Ethos
Learning Goal: I’m working on a computer science multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
you are tasked with analyzing its author’s use of “conventions of academic writing” and strategies for developing ethos. Identify multiple conventions used, examine why they were chosen, and analyze the effects they have upon the author’s target audience. If you have some insight on a particular failure of the author to establish her/his/their credibility as speakers on the issue/topic addressed in the selected text, you can explain that, as well. I do not suspect that this kind of criticism of the authors’ ethos will come into play, i.e., you don not have to find fault with your selected author(s).
