Description/Abstract

Students sometimes take for granted that peer-reviewed research automatically confers a scholarly ethos that is not always supported by the content of the piece. In this poster session, I argue for the inclusion of work related to “the lens of belief” in the undergraduate classroom, asking students to engage with published research through a critical rhetorical lens in order to move away from blind acceptance of any peer-reviewed work, and instead approach all research by attending to its rhetorical situation. The poster describes an exercise that can be adapted for undergraduate courses that asks students to engage critically with research.
