While the teaching of rhetoric as a language analysis tool (rhetorical devices, logical fallacies, and speeches) is becoming more common in secondary education, less attention is paid to rhetoric as a theory of communication or a way of knowing. Drawing on recent research in the field of Rhetoric and Composition, this talk will focus on how the classical art of rhetoric is relevant in contemporary English studies and how its application can improve students’ writing and analysis abilities. It will outline the key tenets of classical rhetoric, including the five canons, the three branches, and the three appeals (also known as the rhetorical triangle), demonstrating how and why classical theories gave rise to the New Rhetoric, with its contemporary sub-branches of Digital and Visual Rhetoric. The presentation will conclude with practical applications of rhetoric to essay writing and textual analysis, including ideas and suggestions for incorporating rhetorical strategies into Stage 6 English classrooms and student assignments.Registration by fax or post.
