composed w/rhetorical equity
Our webtext is composed keeping rhetorical equity in mind. Rhetorical equity means texts are accessible in a variety ways in addition to web accessibility. We do this because we know readers have different motivations, reading preferences, and knowledges when approaching a text. The slideshow version is for readers who may be in a hurry, want a quick review, or are just looking to understand the main points of the text clearly and directly. The essay (***plain text***) version presents the argument with more nuance and scholarship. Each version has affordances and constraints depending on an audience member's needs and/or desires. If rhetorical equity were an equation it would look like this: textual diversities + multiple distribution channels + reading = accessible meaning.
