Rhetorical Visions is the visual reader with the most support for analytical writing. This thematic, visual reader uses rhetoric as the frame for investigating the verbal and visual texts of our culture.   Rhetorical Visions is designed to help tap into the considerable rhetorical awareness that students already possess, in order to to help them put their insights into words in well-crafted academic papers and projects.  In order to exercise their analytical reading and writing skills, Rhetorical Visions provides occasions for students to explore and apply key rhetorical concepts such as narrative, description, interpretation, genre, context, rhetorical appeals (ethos, logos, pathos), and memory to the analysis of print and non-print texts.

From the Back Cover:

This important new thematic reader systematically explores key rhetorical concepts in every chapter to help students analyze verbal and visual texts and to write with greater insight and purpose.  RHETORICAL VISIONS engages the eye, challenges notions of ourselves and the world around us, and inspires well-developed academic writing.  Included are:

 

* over 50 reading selections by important thinkers of our era.

* more than 180 images -- from funny to frightening

* generous support for thinking, reading, writing, and research

* access to a rich Web site for RHETORICAL VISIONS at www.prenhall.com/hesford

 

"RHETORICAL VISIONS uses the visual world that college freshmen live in and turns it into a rhetorical learning place."

- Beverly Neiderman, Kent State University

 

"From silence and passive immersion, students are brought into articulate and critical engagement with the world of images and texts, and thereby, with the world itself." 

- Adrielle Mitchell, Nazareth College of Rochester

Review:

From silence and passive immersion, students are brought into articulate and critical engagement

with the world of images and texts, and thereby, with the world itself.

...[U]nlike many texts I have used to teach composition, the connections between key rhetorical elements and the thematic readings are

clear and coherent, challenging students to make connections between the two as they read..."

Justin Bain, Westminster College
