Rhetoric & Composition

I have been compiling a list of websites on the topic of Rhetoric & Composition for use on a subject guide for the college.  I’ve decided to list them below.  Some are more appropriate to teaching than to students so I have not included them in my college guide but they are worth keeping for looking into in future.  Here they are:

The following is an excellent site to use as an overview of the topic:  http://rhetoric.byu.edu/default.htm

Writing Spaces is an online textbook with several chapters that may be of interest to the instructors for this course.  I have included links to only a few of them here, but would recommend instructors review the text in its entirety to decide what is most appropriate for their course.  See below for links:
