A definition of rhetoric
A modest but pragmatic, easy-to-hang-onto definition of rhetoric from Stoner and Perkins:

The art and science of creating and analyzing "messages that rely on verbal and nonverbal symbols that more or less intentionally influence social attitudes, values, beliefs, and actions." (6)

for Mar 20 - Mar 31

Owing to break and the short semester, I’ve gotten us a little behind. So I’m cutting the exercise in Invention (S&P , Chap 9), and we’ll move right into working with Myers, Discourse of Blogs and Wikis.

Start by reading Meyer, chap 1 and 2. Then have a look at my notes on the two chapters.

Then, re-read S&P chap 5: Analysis, to freshen up on what we’re doing for the project.

And then, start the project RhetoricalUsesOfLinksInWeblogs.
