Did You Know You're a Rhetorican?
MetadataShow full item record
Using rhetoric in writing consultations may leave consultants feeling like Dorothy lost in the Land of Oz. Before we study rhetoric, its foreign terms and fancy theorists -- kairos and Toulmin and ethos, oh my! -- lurk in a dark forest. Evil witches and monkeys jump out, blocking our paths home to the more familiar territory of the English major: discussing the writing process and flow, organization and transitions. If you’ve never explored the Land of Rhetoric before, join me for a stroll down the Yellow Brick Road. While our walk may feel new and frightening at first, like Dorothy, you’ll find your way back home, wiser for having undertaken the journey.
