A guy wearing a jetpack hovering over three traditional literature professors gloating: "Youre all jealous of my backpack."In this course, students will learn the fundamentals of rhetorical analysis and criticism by applying them to a literary genre – specifically science fiction. The purpose of this class is not to merely turn out a better reader or writer, (although that is certainly one of the goals!), but a student equipped to be a better thinker. After all, the goal of rhetoric is to engage the process of critical thinking
