Rhetorical Strategies is a worktext for composition students to apply rhetorical theory in their writing.

The exercises interconnect rhetorical skill work for students to practice "thinking on paper" in style (rhetorical figures, emphasis, arrangement); language (audience appropriate, diction, syntax); and conventions (MLA style, format, source handling).

Content includes: Aristotle's Six Parts of an Argument, Rhetorical Situations, Appeals and Fallacies, Thesis Statements, Topic Sentences, Voice, Stylistics, Revision, Documenting Sources, Grammar/Punctuation/Usage, and Visual Arguments.

All skills are reflected in a sample student research paper.

Content is relevant for AP Composition and Language courses as well as college composition and seminar courses with an emphasis on rhetorical principles.
