What do great poets, preachers and politicians have in common? Using case studies of enduring speeches, from the pulpit to the courtroom to the concert hall, this unit introduces students to advanced rhetorical theory, research and analysis. It extends their ability to think critically about various text types and modes of delivery. The unit cultivates intensive and effective research and reporting practices, through which students develop their own discipline-based inquiry questions to effectively discover, produce, and deliver their arguments.
