Discussion: Mass Media & Rhetoric
Post Discussion by Friday (April 16) then complete 4 Peer Review Responses by Sunday, (April 18).
Write an initial post of 200-250 words in which you discuss one of the following questions:
1. Marshall McLuhan argued that the medium you use to send a message is just as important (and maybe more important) than the message itself. What do you think, and why? Medium is the Message!
2. What makes Rhetoric different from Persuasion? Is it only used to describe speaking, or can writing be rhetoric, too? Use examples to support your answer. Pearson, et.al., pp. 363-365.

After your initial post, read and respond to 4 peer postings of discussion ideas. In your responses to classmates, each reply should be at least 100 words in length and should provide a thoughtful response; simple agreement with or support of a classmate’s post does not count as a response.
