Sample text

The concept of rhetorical education advanced here is one that she has embodied in practice and promoted in exhortation throughout her career. Professor Ebbitt is the consummate classroom teacher as evidenced by numerous awards from colleagues and the testimonials of generations of undergraduate and graduate students. In her continually evolving textbooks, she has drawn not only on her own matchless intuition as a writer and editor but also on every species of research. There is probably no research paradigm that she has dismissed as irrelevant, nor any that she has accepted uncritically.

The writer sets the agenda and the group follows it, participating as fully as possible to help the writer achieve her intentions. In theory they are reconciled on the assumption that, despite personal differences and idiosyncrasies, women share something in common that transcends difference and bonds them: an essential, unchanging, homogeneous feminine nature. The essentializing tendencies of the feminist writing classroom are usually betrayed in statements that the individual female subject should write as a woman or read as a woman in response to experiences lived as a woman.
