Rethinking Joseph Janangelo's "Joseph Cornell and the Artistry of Composing Persuasive Hypertexts"
College Composition and Communication, v59 n2 p280-316 Dec 2007
This article presents several excerpts from an article written by Joseph Janangelo titled "Joseph Cornell and the Artistry of Composing Persuasive Hypertexts." In his article, Janangelo suggested that Cornell's work and ideas about composing model intelligent ways to composing persuasive nonsequential text. Janangelo also wondered if the use of hypertexts programs at K-12 levels is leading students to compose with an understanding that linear argumentation is not the only credible form that academic writing can take. This article also presents the critiques provided by Anne Frances Wysocki, Collin Gifford Brooke, and Jeff Rice on Janangelo's article.
