Course Objectives 3. Students will develop an informed sense of how various techniques of rhetorical strategy are put to use in the service of particular cultural ideas. Such forms point to the ways that rhetoric serves both the social status quo, as well as arguments proceeding against dominant ideas and their values. They will demonstrate this knowledge both analytically and critically, as well as applying such skills to their in their own arguments in essays, speeches, discussions and exercises. 4. Students will be able to recognize and respond to various forms of public address in which discourse about various issues reflects the capacity of speakers to manipulate signs and their symbolic values as they relate to the expectations of particular audiences. They will also demonstrate how to interpret such strategies, as well as make use of these in their own in essays, speeches, discussions, activities and exercises.
