The educational system offers a multitude of subjects and topics that may or may not benefit a student later in life. However, to be specific, a topic that can have a strong benefit, but has also seemed to decline in the level of importance is rhetoric. Rhetoric acts as the backbone to a well formulated persuasive argument, which emphasizes rhetorics true value. Rhetoric should be highly valued by being taught more in today’s high schools because rhetoric is an ancient tool and because rhetoric is everywhere, there is no way to escape the concept. One of the most unique qualities in which rhetoric has become familiar with is that rhetoric has been around and has been constantly used for hundreds of years.
It creates instead an environment which gradually annihilates creative intelligence. He had the following to say about the beginning of a school career, ‘What we know about children is this: children don’t need to be helped to learn, for the most part. They are born with vast, voracious appetite for learning … evolve in the womb with appetite… You don’t teach your child to speak, though we do teach them to write. Writing appeared much later in human evolution.
Meaning that children will get so wrapped up into the technology world they won’t ever know what a piece of cursive writing is or even looks like. And many parents wouldn’t want that for their children. We need to put cursive handwriting back into public schools so students nationwide can learn how to read and write cursive to become successful, and responsible young adults. Students today would get a paper of some sort and they would have to sign their name, now most students would raise their hand and ask “what does this mean?” I know I did once.
Ratvitch talks a lot about testing in the educational system and how it affects everyone in our country. I thought it was very interesting to learn that Ratvitch truly believes that tests should strictly follow our curriculum than determine what is being taught. I have always been intrigued of what makes a test accountable Journal Entry Eight 3 and I am learning from reading this chapter that we cannot always trust what is stated on the exam given.

Assessment also gives teachers useful information about how to improve their teaching methods. In classroom assessment, since teachers themselves develop, administer and analyze the questions, they are more likely to apply the results of the assessment to their own teaching. Therefore, it provides feedback on the effectiveness of instruction and gives students a measure of their progress. The purpose of classroom assessment is to give students the opportunity to show what they have learned rather than catching them out or to show what they have not learned. Through using appropriate classroom assessment strategies and techniques, teachers can increase their students' motivation and show them how well they have learned the
Repetition is strongly used in ads, commercials and even music songs. It causes the audience to eventually become persuaded into buying a product. Businesses are successfully and effectively using repetition correctly because as shown the consumers are falling into the hands of the corporations. In a commercial by Subway, it uses a catchy and repetitive song to grab the attention of the the consumers to effectively “get the song stuck in their heads.” During the commercial the phrase goes, “ Five, five dollar foot long” (Subway 2013).
Being a nerd with glasses, I naturally never stepped foot into the world of High School gossip, but rather found friends who valued my sincerity and willingness to help. Occasionally, I bored them when I rattled off about astronomy, and at times my quips made them laugh. I was always a good listener. I joined the Cross Country team and enjoyed it, because I was never judged on popularity, but rather cheered on for my pace. In my junior year, I was elected Webmaster of my School Key Club, and later at the Carolinas District Convention of over seventy-five clubs, on an impulse, I ran for Lieutenant Governor and gave an impromptu speech.

Without the organization there would so set of rules or a foundation to go by, every other establishment has a set of rules and conduct they follow the schools should have some of their own as
Dialogic vs. Monologic Rhetoric Most students have had at least one bad teacher during their time in school. Looking back, many of the classes I didn’t enjoy or struggled with had teachers who treated the classroom like it was a one-sided conversation. In that case the teacher is engaging in monologic conversation, and in this paper, I will be discussing why dialogic conversation is more beneficial to the listener than monologic. This will be supported by talking about how rhetoric has evolved from Aristotle to Bakhtin, Aristotle’s version of monologic conversation, and how dialogic conversation would be more helpful in situations such as the classroom.

In Quintilian’s book called “Institutio Oratoria”, is basically a series of twelve books that present the practices of rhetoric in the ancient Roman world. Quintilian agrees that the rhetoric education of an orator begins as a young boy. This shows that Quintilian does not recognize women in his definition of student and man throughout the texts. The first parts of the book discuss the basics of pedagogical rhetoric. Even though the text is largely based on the practice and theory of rhetoric, Quintilian also discusses a number of aspects of pedagogical development in the context of the early roman culture.
More than 20 million people in the United States attend colleges and universities each year. Colleges have different techniques to get students to attend.
