Company Description
Description Rhetorical simulations (Rhet Sims) are interactive texts designed to teach students how to think critically about their own habits of mind when writing. Participants are given a writing prompt and then are asked to create a short text by selecting among a series of paragraph options. A short document is created and then students are asked to explain why the document they created best addresses the need of the assignment. Rhet Sims help students develop a critical awareness of how their choices shape their writing.
