Business, Economics & Management journals increased their share by 56%, and Computer Science by 39%. In contrast, Chemical & Material Sciences and Engineering both increased their share by just 2% and 3%, respectively.

A Simple Project - Students Ask the RSA Questions

| | |

Submitted by John W. Pell on November 4, 2014 - 2:34pm


Once a year I have the privilege of teaching an upper-division seminar on Rhetorical Theory. It is always a great pleasure to watch students wrestle with ideas and concepts with which they have little familiarity. This year I wanted to try something new: Provide a way to get students more deeply engaged with the field, specifically RSA. So, over the next few weeks, I will be posting a questions gathered from students concerning the study of rhetoric. Students have given permission to have their questions posted (but I will still not be including their names in the post).
