From Discussion to Argument: Analytical Rhetoric in the Classroom

Professor Emily Steinlight, English

Monday, November 11 | 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Graduate Student Workshops

Convener: Bronwyn Wallace, CTL Graduate Fellow, English

Location: English Department Graduate Lounge (Fisher-Bennett Hall 330)

Summary: This workshop will focus on two central features of literary pedagogy: fostering productive class discussion, and teaching the skills associated with developing argumentative rhetoric in literary analysis. How do we engage our students in the collective endeavor of reading a literary text in class? And how can we mobilize that collective work to help students to become comfortable in and skilled at the basics of argument in our discipline?

All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the English department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
