OPINION IN WRITING AND SPEAKING. THE AUDIENCE. RHETORIC CURRICULUM V, TEACHER AND STUDENT VERSIONS.
KITZHABER, ALBERT R.
GREATER PRECISION IN THINKING AND IN PERSUADING THROUGH ARGUMENTATION ARE THE CONCERNS OF THESE TWO 11TH-GRADE UNITS. THE FIRST, "OPINION IN WRITING AND SPEAKING," ATTEMPTS TO GUIDE THE STUDENT TO A DEFINED OPINION OR THESIS AS A FIRST STEP TOWARDS EFFECTIVE, RATIONAL, SUSTAINED EXPRESSION. THIS UNIT CONTAINS FOUR LESSONS--(1) ARRIVING AT AN OPINION, (2) SEPARATING OPINION FROM FACT, (3) SEPARATING OPINION FROM ASSERTION, AND (4) WRITING HONESTLY. BY CONFRONTING THE STUDENT WITH LITERARY EXAMPLES AND SPECIFIC SITUATIONS CLOSE TO HIS OWN EXPERIENCE, THE SECOND UNIT, "THE AUDIENCE," GUIDES THE STUDENT TO AN AWARENESS OF AN AUDIENCE AND THE NECESSITY OF TAKING IT INTO ACCOUNT IN THE RHETORICAL PROCESS. LESSONS IN THIS UNIT LEAD THE STUDENT TO CONSIDER THE KNOWLEDGE AND INTERESTS OF THE SPECIFIC AUDIENCE HE IS ADDRESSING. THE STUDENT VERSION OF THESE UNITS CONTAINS INTRODUCTIONS, DISCUSSION QUESTIONS, EXERCISES, AND WRITING AND SPEAKING ASSIGNMENTS. THE TEACHER VERSION PROVIDES RATIONALES AND TEACHING GUIDANCE FOR THE MATERIALS. A TEST DESIGNED TO ACCOMPANY THE UNIT, "THE AUDIENCE," IS APPENDED.
