Rhetoric in “This Boat Is My Boat” by Drew Hayden Taylor

Analyze how the author of “This Boat Is My Boat,” Drew Hayden Taylor, uses rhetoric to strengthen his main idea (and what is that).

Focus only on one type of rhetorical appeal (logic, emotion, or credibility). Provide a thesis statement (complete sentence), and in point form, highlight which techniques have been used for the specific type of rhetorical appeal you have chosen to examine. Provide a brief description of each technique (point form is acceptable here). Also, include a paraphrased thesis (same meaning as the original thesis but different words).
