ENG 230 - Rhetoric in Writing

3 credits


Prerequisite(s): ENG 122  
By combining lecture and applied skills-development activities, this course:
1.    introduces students to rhetoric as a functional tool that can help navigate the media that surrounds us every day
2.    models public uses of rhetoric as a source of inspiration and supplemental instruction, as well as an object for critique and
3.    asks students to practice what they've learned from the instruction and models

This examination and emulation of texts and speakers from the past and present allows students to find their own voice, add to their rhetorical toolbox, and strengthen their creative, critical-thinking, and writing skills in the future. By looking closely at the strategies used by content creators, this class equips students to see through the texts around them and peer into the minds behind the texts. This course is offered once per year.
