Teaching Arguments: Rhetorical Comprehension, Critique, and Response
286 pages • 7½ x 9¼
No matter where students' lives lead them, one of the most essential tools we can teach them is how to comprehend, analyze, and respond to arguments. Teaching Arguments provides engaging classroom activities, writing prompts, graphic organizers, and student samples that illustrate how to read, write, listen, speak, and think rhetorically. Students will learn how to understand multiple perspectives; the tension between belief and doubt; the interplay of reason, character, and emotion; the dynamics of occasion, audience, and purpose; and how our own identities shape what we read and write.
