Rhetoric: Lead Them to Your Conclusion

During this 4-week course, students will learn about effective persuasive writing techniques and practice the art of the written argument. Students can expect to see up-to-the-moment examples of arguments that they can cut into rhetorical pieces. Together, we will practice writing arguments that range from the silly to the serious to the scholastic. At the end of the course, students will leave with a variety of written work for their portfolio, including an essay of around 500 words that can be used as the seed for college admissions and scholarship applications.
