WRITING IS RHETORICAL!
RHETORICAL NATURE OF WRITING
When writing, always consider the following:
Purpose for Writing
Never forget the basics.. THEY ARE ALSO RHETORICAL!
Think Critically and Use the Writing Process
I have learned that the rhetorical nature of writing doesn't change. The tone that we use in writing and the approach that we take all depend of our intended audience and/or the discipline in which we are writing. For an example, the language used in writing for a military audience is completely different than that used for a childrens book.
Writing Across Disciplines
After writing across three disciplines during this course, I learned that the relationship between how we write and what we believe is important is simple and quite intimate...
-Writing gave me a voice
-Writing promoted analytical thinking
-Writing allowed me to share my ideas
-Writing gave me a platform to share solutions for problem solving
-Writing is one of the best ways I am able to communicate my perspective with clarity
In this course I have had the opportunity to research and write across the following three disciplines:
Writing across the disciplines forced me to analyze reading material relevant to the specific discipline while remaining objective and on topic
After emphasizing on The Role of Substance Abuse in Sexual Assault across the three disciplines, my views on writing has completely changed. It is now much more complex in a relevant way! There isn't one discipline that is superior to the other. Collectively, they have help to improve the quality of my writing and develop my research skills.
