Rhetorical timelines

My students and I are now in the process of discussing what their rhetorical timeline projects will look like. Today I asked each student to name one person they are considering for inclusion in their projects. Here is the list, with doubles excluded:

  • Aristotle
  • Aspasia
  • Immanuel Kant
  • Quintillian
  • Marcus Aurelius
  • Christine de Pizan
  • Sappho
  • Cicero
  • Plato
  • Martin Luther King
  • Marshall McLuhan
  • Publius Aelius Aristides
  • Gorgias
  • Libanius

Interestingly, the most common double was Sappho and a couple of students seem to be pretty worried about whether what they choose to include should or should not match with what I’ve chosen to teach. How smart! I can’t wait to see how this project turns out.
