Why Rhetoric is Not a Subject, Why Every Subject Needs Rhetoric, and How to Teach It

Andrew Kern discusses the importance of rhetoric in every subject.

Our fragmented age tends to think of everything we do in school as a subject, no more or less important than any other subject. Kern contends that Rhetoric is so important that it should not even be considered a subject. Indeed, teaching Rhetoric properly may well be the most important thing you teach in your school.
