Connecting Back to Rhetoric (the Open Letter)

Thanks for your contributions today. I felt that we were moving in the abstract world of mental disability a bit today, and Thursday, I want to get us back to rhetorical connections. I’ll be asking you to write an “open letter” about the representation of mental disability, and here are a few examples of open letters.

Example #1, RSA

Example #2, Letter to President Obama Regarding Palestine

Example #3, About “Blackberry Bosses” (scroll down)

Update: Here are the three examples we discussed in class:

Facebook letter

Airlines/Oil letter

Jesse Jackson letter (note – this was done on a WordPress site!)

I’ll hand out the assignment on Thursday, but just something to get you thinking. Your thoughts are welcome.
