171 Week #5 Process Assignment#2à5%

Paraphrasing + Rhetorical/Literary Devices

Save this as a word document with the file name: 171 Assignment#2 (YOUR name)

Please re-read the article by Desmond Cole, The Skin I’m In, and complete the assignment below. https://torontolife.com/city/life/skin-im-ive-interrogated-police-50-times-im-black/

Part #1à Paraphrase 4 the following sentences in your own words. You have to change the words as well as the sentence structure, introduce the statement with a signal phrase, and cite the author. (See the Paraphrasing Strategies video in Week #4 + #5 Content and the In-Text Citations google doc. in Week #4 + #5 to review.) Again, I will only mark the first FOUR sentences you attempt.

  1. Original quote: “I was his shadow during his visit, totally in awe of his confidence—he was always saying something clever to knock me off balance.” (paragraph 1)

Paraphrase:

  1. Original quote: “The fact that my mere presence could cause an armed stranger to feel threatened on Sara’s behalf shocked me at first, but shock quickly gave way to bitterness and anger.” (paragraph 6)

Paraphrase:

  1. Original quote: “When I told my white friends about these encounters with police, they’d often respond with skepticism and dismissal, or with a barrage of questions that made me doubt my own sanity.” (paragraph 7)

Paraphrase:

  1. Original quote: “Most of the shooting victims and suspects were young Black men, many of them alleged gang members, and the surge of violence stoked a culture of racial anxiety.” (paragraph 19)

Paraphrase

  1. Original quote: “But I talk about race to survive. If I diminish the role my skin colour plays in my life, and in the lives of all racialized people, I can’t change anything.” (paragraph 30)

Paraphrase:

  1. Original quote: “I’ve become known to police. That shorthand has always troubled me—too many black men are “known” through a foggy lens of suspicion we’ve done nothing to earn. Maybe if they really got to know us, they’d treat us differently.” (paragraph 32)

Paraphrase:

  1. Original quote: “My eyes follow every police car that passes me. It has become a matter of survival in a city where, despite all the talk of harmonious multi-culturalism, I continue to stand out.” (paragraph 23)

Paraphrase:

Faithful to the meaning

Original + accurate vocabulary

Original + clear sentence structure

Then write a sentence or 2 to explain why the author used that rhetorical element. What was his purpose in using it? And what effect does that rhetorical/literary device have on Cole’s readers?
