Rhetoric of the Internet


Spring 2004


Topics for Consideration

We will treat the following three general topics:

Methods of Instruction

The instruction in the course will be mainly inductive. That is, we will be spending much time working from the web and analyzing the things we find there. Concepts that we use to understand what we are finding will come from reading, web material, and discussion. In such an environment, the student's task is not so much memorization of concepts but use of concepts in analysis of communication. Some group work will be employed to prepare for classroom discussions.
