This semester I will be pulling the majority of your readings from the text ‘The Language of Composition’. Because we do not have a class set of these books, I will be providing you with copies of the pages we will be using. Chapter one of the text covers Rhetorical Analysis, and can be accessed below:

Please feel free to read and print these pages as you wish.


Additionally, I have taken the readings from chapter 1 and condensed them into a short packet, for those of you that do not want to print all 20+ pages from the text.

Be sure to refer to chapter 1 of this text as we work through the first unit over Rhetorical Analysis – and please let me know if you have any issues accessing the texts throughout the semester!
