Introduction to Rhetoric


Rhetoric is the art of persuasive communication. Intended for adults, especially parents who want to know more about rhetoric to support their students, this class will not assign homework but rather offer weekly readings. This class will introduce rhetoric, focusing on the classical rhetoric taught by the ancient Greeks and Romans. Along the way, we will learn more about the history of the rhetorical tradition, how rhetoric has developed up to the 21st Century, and the most effective tools of persuasion. Dr. Collender has taught rhetoric for over 20 years and is the author of A Rhetoric of Love: Volume Two, published by Veritas Press. Classes meet at 5pm PST
