PWR 1LO: Writing & Rhetoric 1: What Are We Trying to Sustain? Rhetoric of Nature's Values and Services

With increasing rates of environmental impacts from human activity, communities across the planet face challenges for sustainability. Given the many benefits we derive from nature - from cultural and spiritual benefits, to basic goods like food and water, to economic benefits from the use of natural resources - defining what we value and what we wish to sustain is a top priority. This class will examine diverse perspectives on the value and services we derive from nature and consider challenges for balancing multiple uses of nature in the context of sustainable resource management and conservation.

PWR 1MR: Writing & Rhetoric 1: "Did You Hear That?": The Rhetoric of Ghost Story

This class will explore varied aspects of the rhetoric of haunting, considering the supernatural, the psychoanalytical, the traumatic, and the simply hard to believe. nWe will examine how ghosts represent cultural values and fears, investigating the rhetorical elements of the ghost story: How are supernatural accounts constructed? How are they debunked? What strategies do writers use to prove the impossible, to convince the world that ghosts can exist? We will use our explorations of the supernatural to shape our ability to make nuanced arguments, to draw effectively from research materials, and to think critically about what we see and hear.
