UNDERSTANDING RHETORIC LOSH PDF

After shaking up writing classrooms at more than colleges and universities, Understanding Rhetoric, the comic-style guide to writing that instructors have told us gets "nothing but positive responses from students," has returned for a second edition! Combining the composition know-how of Liz Losh and Jonathan Alexander with the comic-art credibility of Kevin Cannon Far Arden, Crater XV and Zander Cannon Heck, Kaijumax , Understanding Rhetoric encourages deep engagement with core concepts of writing and rhetoric, as teachers and students alike have told us. With a new chapter on collaboration, unique coverage of writerly identity, and extensive discussions of rhetoric, reading, argument, research, revision, and presenting work to audiences, the one and only composition comic covers what students need to know--and does so with fun and flair. A new "Walk the Talk" feature in each chapter helps students see how to put concepts to use in their own reading and writing. And the detailed instructor's manual will help both novice and experienced instructors plan a course around Understanding Rhetoric.

Access options available:. This book is the first of its kind in composition and rhetoric: a writing textbook presented in the form of a comic book. Adding to the growing body of research and pedagogy in visual and multimodal literacy, according to its introduction, the volume aims at first-year composition students and contains both theoretical background and practical tips for completing writing.

On the whole, the book is a success especially in presenting a well-crafted graphic format , though it also risks undermining its multimodal goals by largely emphasizing established writing approaches that center on the traditional academic research paper.

In that sense, the book offers a contradictory message: while it is composed in the form of a comic book, it tries to teach mostly print-based academic writing. Understanding Rhetoric evokes an interest in textual, visual, and artistic aspects of composing. It lists four authors: two are teachers and scholars in rhetoric and writing Losh is the director of the Culture, Art, and Technology program at the University of California, San Diego, and Alexander is director of the Center [End Page ] of Excellence in Writing and Communication at the University of California, Irvine ; Kevin and Zander Cannon not related to each other are established artists and cartoonists.

Clearly, the book is well crafted; the illustrations and overall approach as a comic book meet their goal of being both visually interesting and informative. The illustrators draw the two academics in a creative, friendly, and approachable manner, and they craft good movement and continuity into their panels.

This structure works well, though a reader will recognize its form and function from innumerable previous writing textbooks. In this sense, then, this book is structured more like a conventional rhetoric rather than a comic book.

Herein, then, lies a potential weakness. His book is thus both an explanation of what graphic stories do steps one and two , and a guide about how to compose graphic stories steps three through six.
