THE PERSONAL VOICE. THE RHETORIC OF LITERATURE. RHETORIC CURRICULUM VI, TEACHER AND STUDENT VERSIONS.
KITZHABER, ALBERT R.
THE SUBJECT OF STYLE IS TREATED GENERALLY AND SPECIFICALLY IN THESE TWO RHETORIC UNITS FOR 12TH-GRADERS. THE FIRST UNIT, "THE PERSONAL VOICE," FOCUSES ON THE MANY CHOICES A WRITER MUST MAKE IN WRITING MEANINGFULLY ABOUT HIS OWN EXPERIENCE AND COMPLEMENTS ANOTHER 12TH-GRADE UNIT, "ELEMENTS OF STYLE." EXAMPLES OF WRITING USING THE PERSONAL VOICE ARE ANALYZED TO ILLUSTRATE MEANS OF FINDING AN APPROPRIATE STYLE AND VOICE. WRITING ASSIGNMENTS ENCOURAGE STUDENTS TO EXAMINE THEIR OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCES BY KEEPING INFORMAL JOURNALS AND USING THEM IN THE PREPARATION OF ESSAYS. THE SECOND UNIT, "THE RHETORIC OF LITERATURE," EXAMINES THE RHETORICAL STRATEGIES USED BY AUTHORS IN PRESENTING CONVINCING IMAGINED WORLDS. AMONG LITERARY EXAMPLES ANALYZED ARE HAWTHORNE'S "RAPPACCINI'S DAUGHTER," BRYANT'S "THANATOPSIS," DICKINSON'S "AFTER GREAT PAIN A FORMAL FEELING COMES,""THE PARABLE OF THE UNMERCIFUL SERVANT" FROM THE BIBLE, AND BRET HARTE'S "THE OUTCASTS OF POKER FLAT." THE STUDENT VERSION CONTAINS STUDY AND DISCUSSION QUESTIONS, TEXTS OF THE ABOVE WORKS, AND SUGGESTIONS FOR WRITING ASSIGNMENTS. THE TEACHER VERSION INCLUDES BACKGROUND INFORMATION, SUGGESTIONS FOR TEACHING PROCEDURES, AND SUPPLEMENTARY ASSIGNMENTS.
