Tues 28 Aug

for Thurs: Start Seeing Rhetoric
For Thursday, I'd like you to read the statement I handed out in class. You'll likely read it in multiple ways. For instance, you'll probably read the text to get the information of what the course entails. And you'll probably read it to get a sense of the course itself - that is, to characterize the course as it is represented in the statement in various ways, by various means. It's those "various means" we're interested in for Thursday.

I'd like you compile a list of affordances - elements, features, moves, things - that you see operating in this statement that make it a rhetorical message - elements that operate rhetorically. Make your list on a piece of paper, a card, the print out of a digital file, whatever - but something you can hand to me on Thursday at the beginning of class. There are at least a dozen kinds of affordances, probably dozens - depending on how fine grained your observation.
