People encounter principles of rhetoric every day, and frequently they don’t really examine the nature and consequence of that interaction. Nonetheless, these interactions with rhetoric influence people’s thoughts and actions and if left unexamined can lead to unintended consequences. An enlightened and engaged citizenry depends on a heightened awareness of how language and images influence thought and action. Moreover, the examination can be rewarding and fun, similar to solving a puzzle or mystery. These puzzles and mysteries are abundant, and we will find them in newspapers, advertisements, academic argument and on the Internet. We will also look at how visual and audio images contribute to the logical, ethical and emotional reactions we experience upon encountering them. Students will examine and analyze samples of rhetoric in order to understand how they work and then to create some of their own, in the process compiling an electronic portfolio that records their learning experience and presents their composition of visual, linguistic and aural expression.
