Abstract or Summary
  • Clashes of ideology are all around us, from our computer and television screens to our composition classrooms, and they merit attention within the composition classroom. This thesis examines the justifications and pedagogies that scholars in rhetoric and composition use to infuse issues of ideology and social ethics into writing instruction and the study of persuasion, and it analyzes the leading criticisms levelled against such pedagogies and their rationale. Using the 2014 Ferguson protests as a case study, this thesis illustrates how ideographic analysis can be a constructive method for introducing ideological inquiry into the composition classroom, and argues that its theoretical rationale is more cogent and compelling than other, popular, contemporary approaches. This thesis moves from theory to praxis as it applies the ideograph both in lower and upper-division composition classrooms, advocating for a rhetoric of inquiry and dialogue, rather than conversion and consensus.
