Rhetorical Numbers: A Case for Quantitative Writing in the Composition Classroom
Wolfe, Joanna
College Composition and Communication, v61 n3 p452-475 Feb 2010
Contemporary argument increasingly relies on quantitative information and reasoning, yet our profession neglects to view these means of persuasion as central to rhetorical arts. Such omission ironically serves to privilege quantitative arguments as above "mere rhetoric." Changes are needed to our textbooks, writing assignments, and instructor development programs to broaden how both we and our students perceive rhetoric. (Contains 1 figure, 1 table and 7 notes.)
