The Rhetoric for the 21st Century literacy provides experience with rhetorical arts learned and practiced over the course of one’s life. These include written, oral, and digital forms of expression used by highly literate members of our society. Both the First Writing and Second Writing requirements comprise the Rhetoric for the 21st Century component of the new curriculum.
