As a teacher or rhetoric and writing, I want to help students become sophisticated critics of and contributors to the worlds of rhetorical text that surround them. I want students to understand themselves as writers speaking in meaningful conversation with other writers.
I want students to merge their own interests and experience with an intellectually rich appreciation of rhetorical invention, style, and audience awareness. I believe, further, that undergraduate writing should be read, discussed, and celebrated as writing.
