Rhetoric in Action

Rhetoric in Action

One USF Composition class has a greater purpose than simply teaching students about writing, as they are encouraged to turn words into deeds. University Beat on WUSF TV takes us to the Social Action Presentation Day, where seventy students showed how they took issues they felt passionate about and put rhetoric in action.

Rhetoric in Action

For the next few weeks, University Beat on WUSF FM take a look back at some of the interesting things USF students have done over the last semester, and a look ahead at some of the more intriguing summer plans a few of them have. We start this week with an English class where freshmen take an issue they’re passionate about and turn rhetoric into action.
