Rhetoric and Identification Assignments

  1. Semi-Weekly Talking Points: Informal notes analyzing/exploring key issues in the readings.
  2. One short paper, to be read aloud and then handed in, which will explicate the “cultural artifact” (a text, a theory, a philosophy, an architectural style, etc.) you have chosen for the semester, across which you will read the texts of the course
  3. Summary/Response Papers: Formal, one-page, single spaced, beautifully polished, and terribly insightful papers that summarize the assigned reading and then respond to it by “reading” it across your cultural artifact–to be read aloud in class and handed in
