Course Description

Rhetoric I covers history and principles of classical rhetoric and a brief review of logic.  Students learn the skill of determining best structure for spoken communication (speeches, debates, arguments) and of written works of all kinds, from the sentence level, to paragraphs, to entire books. The course stresses application of the principles in the student’s own speech, writing, and communication. That includes elements of the rhetorical situation and the available means of persuasion. The text “Power of Persuasion” by Peter Roise, is based primarily on classical rhetoric in Aristotle’s “Art of Rhetoric” and the “Ad Herenium” and on the Bible.
