Becoming rhetorical is a transformation that allows students to identify rhetorical problems and respond to them with arguments, no matter the course or context from which the problems emerge. In BECOMING RHETORICAL, author Jodie Nicotra takes students beyond the view of the rhetorical situation as being composed of communicator, audience, and message, encouraging them also to consider important aspects such as exigence, purpose, and the means of communication. Students learn to analyze and compose in textual, visual, and multimodalities -- from evaluating an op-ed piece, to making a video of a consumer product, to creating an entire public awareness campaign -- thereby becoming confident critical thinkers in a 21st century multimedia world.
