Subtitle: A Rhetorical View of History, Communication, and Composition
Book Description: Over the course of this text, you'll study the ways that rhetoric and communication developed over time, you'll learn about the different rhetorical tools that are used in effective communication, and you'll learn how to employ those tools in your own compositions.
In this text, students will be diving into rhetoric. They will study the ways in which rhetoric and communication developed over time, they’ll learn about the different rhetorical tools that are used for effective communication, and they’ll practice using those tools in their own compositions.
This text includes a brief history of rhetoric from classical Greece and Rome to modern rhetorical theory. Then, the focus shifts to using rhetorical analysis to identify the elements of rhetoric, including rhetorical appeals, strategies, and devices, used in historical and modern communication. Finally, the text invites students to utilize all they’ve learned to compose their own Rogerian argument on a current topic.
With a MA in Rhetoric and Composition and over 20 years experience teaching composition, Dr. Palmer offers a survey of rhetoric that is approachable and affordable for students.
