Analyzing Gm Food Risk Arguments Through An Online, Multi-Media Case Study, Tosh Tachino, David R. Russell
We constructed an online, multi-media simulation of an environmental debate, and analyzed the uses of scientific information from it that 41 college students included in arguments about the issue. Analysis of the ways students appropriate information to reason about science suggests they do so much as scientists do in public policy debates.

Chris Vein: What Forensics Did For Me, 2019 Minnesota State University, Mankato
Chris Vein: What Forensics Did For Me, Chris Vein
Speaker & Gavel
ALUMNI CORNER: The forensic community is filled with alumni who will tout the benefits they received through their participation in intercollegiate speech and debate activities. As directors of forensics programs face battles for budgets and sometimes for their program’s very existence, having a collection of published testimonies about the positive influence of forensics can be a tremendous help. To that end, Speaker & Gavel is setting aside space in each issue for our alumni to talk about how forensics has helped them in their professional life. These are our alumni’s stories.

Imitatio, Civic Education, And The Digital Temper, 2019 University of Alabama
Imitatio, Civic Education, And The Digital Temper, Jessy Ohl
Speaker & Gavel
This essay advocates for the reinvigoration of imitatio pedagogy to reestablish disciplinary commitment to civic education in perilous democratic times. I argue that imitatio offers a needed response to several contemporary democratic challenges. After mapping out three theoretical relations of imitatio, I describe one approach for inculcating democratic citizenship via imitatio designed for undergraduate education. Finally, I conclude by reflecting on the specific affordances of imitatio education in the digital age and call on educators of rhetoric and communication to once again perceive democratic well-being as a disciplinary responsibility.
Fighting The Formula: Adherence To Unspoken Rules Limit The Value Of Individual Events, 2019 Minnesota State University, Mankato
Fighting The Formula: Adherence To Unspoken Rules Limit The Value Of Individual Events, Eric Mishne
Speaker & Gavel
Forensics is one of the most valuable activities in which college students can be involved. However, the strict adherence to formula and unspoken rules diminishes the educational benefits. This article explores an extensive body of literature highlighting the concerns of formulaic practices in collegiate forensics. The author asserts that authenticity, genuine learning, transferability of skills, innovation, and high quality speaking are the biggest victims of stringent adherence to the forensic formula. Specific recommendations for competitors, judges, coaches, and organizing bodies are given, suggesting that there are alternatives which can mitigate growing concerns.

The Ethics Of Occultic Communication: An Invocation Of Joshua Gunn And Sissela Bok, 2019 Duquesne University
The Ethics Of Occultic Communication: An Invocation Of Joshua Gunn And Sissela Bok, James Thomas Begley Jr.
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
Occultic rhetoric, according to Joshua Gunn, is a genre of discourse concerned with the study and practice of secret communications. The strategic sharing of secret messages involves a host of methods and conventions designed for the selective disclosure of hidden knowledge, thus controlling the boundaries of (and accessibility to power between) insider and outsider groups. Occultic rhetoric has its uses in everyday encounters, but the abuse of such manipulative strategies, especially by those in the academy and other positions of power and trust, calls for an ethical response. This dissertation submits occultic rhetoric to moral investigation by incorporating the works ...
A Rhetorical Analysis Of Opening Statements In Trial: Reconsidering The Classical Canon Of Invention, 2019 Bellarmine University
A Rhetorical Analysis Of Opening Statements In Trial: Reconsidering The Classical Canon Of Invention, Andrew Chandler
This analysis of 21 opening statements probes at current persuasive practices employed by trial attorneys through the lens of mainstream legal advice and an expanded definition of rhetorical invention – one which includes both discovery and creation. An evaluation of such practice reveals the utility, and furthermore the duty of the advocate, to draw upon an expanded realm of available arguments.
Relationship Between Joint Attention And Language In Multiparous And Uniparous Households, 2019 East Tennessee State University
Relationship Between Joint Attention And Language In Multiparous And Uniparous Households, Hannah C. Manis
Undergraduate Honors Theses
The present study was designed to examine differences in the effect of the number of children in the household (also known as “parity”) on the relationship between initiating joint attention (IJA) and language development. We reasoned that infants who are only children (i.e., in uniparous homes), relative to infants who have one or more siblings (i.e., in multiparous homes), would have more opportunity to engage in IJA, and would, therefore, acquire a larger number of object labels. We tested the hypotheses that: 1) there would be a positive correlation between the number of IJA bids and language overall ...
Rhetoric Of The Far Right: A Rhetorical Analysis Of Donald Trump And Viktor Orbán, 2019 St. John Fisher College
Rhetoric Of The Far Right: A Rhetorical Analysis Of Donald Trump And Viktor Orbán, Hannah Batten
The Review: A Journal of Undergraduate Student Research
This research consists of a rhetorical analysis of two world leaders: Donald Trump, president of the United States, and Viktor Orban, Prime Minister of Hungary. The particular lens of this rhetoric is that of the political far-right. This research works to compare the rhetorical devise and strategies used by two different world leaders that possess some overlapping elements in terms of their political agendas. While this work involves political elements by nature, it does not intend to promote or refute any form of political ideology, rather it is a purely rhetorical analysis.
Engaged Science And Working With Youth For Sustainable Cities: A Partnership Between “East High Cares” And An Iowa State University Research Team, Linda Shenk, Nadia Anderson, Ulrike Passe, Caroline Krejci
Integrating the voices of youth into city and neighborhood decision-making and scientific research is crucial for developing forward-thinking approaches for creating sustainable cities. In our pilot project, we partner with the high school group East High Cares, empowering them to lead community dialogue around issues of urban agriculture and energy-efficient homes. This paper will share our reasons for partnering with these youth, how working with them shapes our multi-disciplinary methods, and how we will integrate this work with the datadriven urban energy and microclimate simulation tools our research team is developing for sustainable city decision-making.
Investigating Latino Stereotypes And Identification In One Day At A Time: A Rhetorical Criticism Of Latino Representations In Entertainment Media, 2019 University of Colorado, Boulder
Investigating Latino Stereotypes And Identification In One Day At A Time: A Rhetorical Criticism Of Latino Representations In Entertainment Media, Hannah Stewart
Communication Undergraduate Honors Theses
Since television has had the ability to entertain, it has also had the ability to persuade us about how we ought to perceive the world. To do so, television has long relied on stereotypes, whether they are of gender, race, or class, and research across media and communication disciplines have identified that representations of these marginalized groups reinforce stereotypes’ existence in and out of television. The purposes of this analysis are to examine stereotypical narratives surrounding Latinos and the Latino experience in America, as well as to understand how these stereotypes are challenged. Using a combination of narrative and ideological ...
Using Delphi To Track Shifts In Meanings Of Scientific Concepts In A Long-Term, Expert-Lay Collaboration On Sustainable Agriculture Research In The Midwest, Nancy Grudens-Schuck, G. L. Drake Larsen
Dilemmas for ongoing expert-lay collaborations for agricultural conservation include divergence of meaning of new scientific concepts. Delphi method documented stakeholders’ understandings of a new term, “ecosystem services.” Flood mitigation and pest management benefits as ecosystem service attributes were ranked lower by stakeholders than anticipated by scientists. Recreation and aesthetics, and food production, were ranked higher.
Citizen Science: Evaluating For Civic Engagement, 2019 Iowa State University
Citizen Science: Evaluating For Civic Engagement, Nancy Grudens-Schuck, Zulham Sirajuddin
Citizen science programs directly engage the public in collecting data for science-related projects. This paper will investigate the claim that citizen science programs deliver opportunities and outcomes for a specific kind of benefit, “civic engagement.” The paper will identify specific behaviors and conditions that have been used as indicators of citizen engagement in citizen science and discuss probable theoretical bases. Second, the paper will report on progress of an empirical study (a program evaluation) conducted in spring of 2016 of the Iowater Program, a citizen science program managed by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, which has trained over 5 ...
Bridging Power Asymmetries In Facilitating Public Participation, 2019 Iowa State University
Bridging Power Asymmetries In Facilitating Public Participation, Zulham Sirajuddin, Nancy Grudens-Schuck
Participatory approaches to community development and environmental management frequently cause facilitators to encounter dilemmas related to the structure and choice of methods. Because participation does not occur in power vacuum but rather as embedded social and power structures which potentially interfere, these dilemmas underscore the importance of better facilitation structures and techniques to mediate the complexity of disagreements. This paper will review the literature on selecting and applying facilitation methods in Asia, focused on South and Southeast Asia. The analysis includes critical elements for involving marginalized communities in participatory approaches.
