Focusing specifically on how sports have been traditionally situated in American higher education, this course invites students to develop four literacy tasks with heavy focus on revision, peer review, and conferencing.
Through engaging with primary and secondary source on classical rhetoric (Greek and Roman), students developed three literacy tasks focusing on applying classical rhetoric to contemporary issues, the treatment of women in works by Aristotle and his contemporaries, and the debate between Plato and others on terms such as “rhetoric,” and “philosophia.”
The first in a two-part required composition sequence, this course invites students to engage with the level of scholarly writing expected at the university level.
