Rhetoric and Writing on the Us-mexico Border and Beyond - by Barry Thatcher (Hardcover)
About this item
Drawing on intercultural rhetoric and composition, second-language/bilingualism studies, and cultural and border studies, this book proposes a US-Mexico border theory and methodology of multilingual writing. Assessing how US, Mexican, and border cultures encourage distinct rhetorical patterns and expectations in writing classrooms, this book develops a theory of multilingual border rhetoric based on a framework of six rhetorical capabilities and explores how students develop these capabilities and function across many rhetorical contexts. Advancing research, theory, and practice for the teaching of writing on both sides of the US-Mexico border, this volume at the same time offers institutional and programmatic suggestions.
