Key Terms & Ideas

Throughout the semester, we’ll be returning to some key terms for the study of composition, rhetoric, and texts. You’ll use these terms in class discussion as well as in your own writing and composing:

  • Rhetorical Situation
  • Compose
  • Genre
  • Remix
  • Text
  • New Media
  • Medium
  • Screen
  • Mode
  • Design
  • Remediation
  • Multimodality
  • Convergence
  • Audience
  • Remix

We’ll revisit this list as the semester moves forward, and I’ll check in with the class to see what terms we might add to or remove from this list.
