  • Was it taxing (hard)?
  • Do you think that you were able to provide an accurate sample of your writing abilities?
  • Were there any design flaws in the way this research was conducted?
  • When you were writing did you have a strong sense of purpose???

Blackboard Journal -- According to NWWK, writing is a knowledge-making activity. So, let's use writing to make some knowledge about rhetoric, the rhetorical situation, and the other terms listed here:

  • Rhetoric
  • Exigence
  • Author
  • Purpose
  • Audience
  • Context
  • Rhetorical Appeals
    • Ethos
    • Patho
    • Logos

Create a glossary of these terms. For each term, do the following:

  • Write a brief definition of the term IN YOUR OWN WORDS so that you understand it!
  • Write a brief response to each term where you just think about, respond, and wrestle with the idea.
  • Please conduct some research --do some reading and watch some videos ---to get a better understanding of each term!

Please use the standard MLA format for your heading.

This is due on Sunday by midnight --Look in Blackboard under Journals.
