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)

The Rider

I included a rider in the CourseStatement as a gauge for you to see how closely you're reading. A rider is a provision in a contract that needs to be followed. Riders are sometimes nefariously used to see if the parties are actually readying the contract. Two readers saw the rider and followed it. There's no penalty for not seeing it, but if you didn't see it, you're not reading closely. Close reading is going to be crucial in this course.
