I'll show you mine

Ahoy.

The blog is titled “The Many Flavors of Rhetoric” because they told me I could name it whatever I want and I was hungry.

So: Here I am in the middle of Grad School app season. Follow my angst, share my excitement, and (some other tagline because someone told me things look good in threes).

Meet me:

Undergrad

Male, ruggedly handsome.

Middle-of-Nowhere Uni that accepts everyone and graduates few. (GPA 3.69)

Major: Rhetoricish

Minor: Psychology

GRE V164 Q150 AW 4

I have two conference presentations.

I don’t take myself seriously.

I’m kind and easy to get along with.

I can’t promise many insights from this blog – hell it’ll probably be as much about Grad School as it is Netflix – but I hope you enjoy watching me find my future.

I didn't know about websites like this until Purdue's "Application Received" email told me not to look at websites like this. Thanks for being someone else rhetoricey. Are you into theory or teaching?

 

I wish you luck in finding your future.

Both - I really couldn't do one without the other.

I prefer to say that I am into "informing" - "inform" has latin roots in the word "forma" and "in". The take away, (and I'm probably preaching to the choir here) is that informing is not a data dump into student minds. It is cultivation. It is context. It's helping them shape themselves. Rhet/Comp theory provides the framework for sorting through all the data. Teaching, of course, is imparting that framework into the students. 

I would not care about theory if I did not care as much as I do about teaching.

Circular reasoning be damned- I like circles.
