reading rhetorically the goals
Reading Rhetorically: The Goals
  • 1. Learning conceptual knowledge.
    • The Norman Conquest occurred in 1066.
    • Cardinality of numbers.

joining the conversation
Joining the Conversation
  • 1. Consider a community that you belong to where you feel that you can quickly catch the drift of an in-progress conversation (e.g., other triathlon athletes, or regulars on Farmville). What are some “hot topics” of conversation in these communities? What might exclude someone from these conversations? If you wanted to address a general audience about this issue, how much background information would you need to supply?
  • 2. Now let’s reverse the situation. Have you ever listened to a conversation in which you were a baffled outsider rather than insider? Describe an experience where you had to work hard to get inside an ongoing conversation. Then consider how that experience might be an appropriate analogy for a time when you were frustrated by trying to read a book or article addressed to an insider audience rather than to someone in your background.

Writing Prompt
  • How do you define good college writing? Make a list of the characteristics you come up with. Then make a list of what you think your instructors’ expectations are for good college writing, and note how they may differ from yours. (Research suggests that many students today define good writing as “writing that makes something happen in the world.” Would that match your definition or that of your instructors?) What might account for the differences—and the similarities—in the definitions and lists? Do you need to alter your ideas about good college writing to meet your instructors’ expectations? Why, or why not?
