Welcome to LA 101 H

This honors course offers comprehensive training in oral, written, visual, and digital communication for the twenty-first century. It unites these various modes under the flexible art of rhetoric and uses rhetoric both to strengthen communication skills and to sharpen awareness of the challenges and advantages presented by oral, written, visual, and digital modes. Students will read about and discuss rhetorical concepts and situations and put their knowledge immediately to use by 

1) analyzing civic rhetoric on campus and in their communities (including their networked communities)

 2) researching current issues

 3) developing and presenting arguments in oral, written, visual, and digital form.
