An introduction to Rhetorical Structure Theory

Pascual Pérez-Paredes's insight:

Via Harold P Boushell @ Linked in

 

RST was originally developed as part of studies of computer-based text generation. A team at Information Sciences Institute (part of University of Southern California) was working on computer-based authoring. In about 1983, part of the team (Bill Mann, Sandy Thompson and Christian Matthiessen) noted that there was no available theory of discourse structure or function that provided enough detail to guide programming any sort of author.

Responding to this lack, RST was developed out of studies of edited or carefully prepared text from a wide variety of sources. It now has a status in linguistics that is independent of its computational uses.

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it

These teachers see the internet and digital technologies such as social networking sites, cell phones and texting, generally facilitating teens’ personal expression and creativity, broadening the audience for their written material, and encouraging teens to write more often in more formats than may have been the case in prior generations.  At the same time, they describe the unique challenges of teaching writing in the digital age, including the “creep” of informal style into formal writing assignments and the need to better educate students about issues such as plagiarism and fair use.

This a conversation dating back to Socrates and others. It is not so much that it changes how we think although it does. The more important point is we remain aware and work with that understanding. How does it impact teaching and learning in the classroom?
