AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE EFFECTIVENESS OF RESPONDING TO STUDENT WRITING USING RHETORICAL APPEALS
Abstract (Summary)This thesis reflects on case studies I conducted with two students from my English 111 class in order to find out if responding to student writing using ethos, pathos and logos was an effective teaching practice. My research study began fall semester of 2004 and was completed spring semester of 2005. My research questions were: Does responding to student writing using the rhetorical appeals help students understand how to improve their writing? Do they understand my rhetorically based comments and know how to use them to make revisions? Did they revise and how?
