A definition of rhetoric

We've completed a first pass at considering the rhetorical situation. My notes are in DebriefingOnAspectsOfRhetSitExercise. These are notes on your work with the exercise, with some examples of notes that develop insight, and advice on method. They also develop the idea of the digital rhetorical situation further, based on what you have written about it in your notes. The notes are in draft until end of day of Sunday, but you're welcome to consider them and comment on the as I draft them. Post comments in the Comments section, or edit the page and add your notes directly to my text. That's the wiki way: collaborative editing.

The notes I post are not optional reading, and they are not re-hashings of ideas in the text. They add to the text. They have the same status as the text itself: Reading is required for moving forward in the course.

To prepare for class for the 15th, review the following material BEFORE class so you can work with it during class.
