Fostering Responsive Thinkers and Communicators
In Writing rhetorically, Jennifer Fletcher provides teachers with strategies and frameworks for writing instruction that cultivate student expertise and autonomy. By teaching writing rhetorically, we support students in becoming independent problem solvers. They learn how to discover their own questions, design their own inquiry process, develop their own positions and purposes, make their own choices about content and form, and contribute to conversations that matter to them.
Inside this book, Fletcher examines the rhetorical writing skills and practices that help students effectively communicate across contexts while providing successful ways to foster:
- inquiry, invention and rhetorical thinking
- writing for transfer
- paraphrasing, summary, synthesis and citation skills
- research skills and processes
- evidence-based reasoning
- rhetorical decision-making.
Rhetorical decision making helps students develop the skills, knowledge, and mindsets needed for transfer of learning: the ability to adapt and apply learning in new settings. The more choices students make as writers, the better prepared they are to analyse and respond to diverse rhetorical situations.
