- I think that I can grasp what Shauf is saying here but I am not too sure. The "humanist" perspective kind of throws me off a little bit. Her definition does not only look at visual rhetoric but the virtual space it creates.
- What is rhetoric in the modern world?

The PowerPoint articles:
- Tufte makes a good point (ha!). I do not know about the cognitive side of it yet, I have not read up on the cognitive/social aspects of PowerPoint within the classroom.
- Byrne's take on it I am not sure about either. I feel like I need to read more up on it or study it more objectively within the classroom to make any judgments or assumptions.

- Are these types of presentations simply slide shows that do not promote true learning?
- Do the benefits outweigh the losses?
