Bookmarks Project

This section represents the contributions of our students to the resources for classes. In each class, students have been asked identify a website or web resource that may be useful to others taking the course or to those interested in a related subject area. The "bookmarks" are then submitted with explanations of the value the contributors believe they represent. Over time, this area offer the collective efforts of students who quite often are the best sources for classroom material.

A study of persuasion in three books. I have selected this link because many consider Aristotle's Rhetoric to be the most comprehensive treatment of argument and persuasion in the history of western civilization.
