Video Tutorial on Analyzing Purpose in Professional Writing
Before students can understand specific aspects of successful professional messages (like organization or style), they need to grasp prerequisites about context. Building on Aristotle, this tutorial helps students think about a workplace document as one of three aspects of context represented by the rhetorical triangle, the writer and his or her purpose. It teaches students to analyze the four purposes for which professionals create written messages in the workplace.

Topos, Compasses, and Triangles, Oh My!
In this activity, students will learn how to actually triangulate using a compass, topographical (topo) map and view of outside landmarks. It is best if a field trip to another location away from school is selected.

2.5 The emperor
In this unit we will examine a range of Napoleonic imagery by David, Gros and a number of other artists, beginning with comparatively simple single-figure portraits and moving on to elaborate narrative compositions such as Jaffa and Eylau. In so doing, we will have three main aims: to develop your skills of visual analysis, to examine the relationship between art and politics and to introduce you to some of the complex issues involved in interpreting works of art.
