Description

Product Description

THE RHETORICAL ACT: THINKING, SPEAKING, AND WRITING CRITICALLY, Fifth Edition, teaches you how to craft and critique rhetorical messages that influence, inviting and enabling you to become an articulate rhetor and critic of the world around you. The book combines thorough coverage of rhetorical criticism, media literacy, and strategic public speaking, providing a solid grounding in essential concepts while helping you hone your skills in each area.

Review

"We like THE RHETORICAL ACT because it gets students to think in new ways. The authors break down the critical thinking process so that it is manageable. The materials for analysis help the students to apply the concepts to the real world, and the skills aspects are worked into the rhetorical base so that students learn both."

"THE RHETORICAL ACT has three great strengths: 1) The range of examples, which include a diverse array of speakers and speeches; 2) The theoretical perspective, including a feminist perspective; 3) The scholarly reputation of the author."
