Hello, my name is Kimberly Daucher!  I am currently a senior in my final semester at Longwood University.  I will be graduating in May with a bachelors in Criminology and Criminal Justice with a minor in Rhetoric and Profession Writing.  I have completed other courses for my minor such as an internship with a photographer in California, a course on visual rhetoric, and courses on technical and professional writing.  I currently do not have a concrete plan as to what I wish to pursue once I graduate, but I believe that I will pursue a masters program.  My minor has opened my eyes into many different fields of opportunity that I never thought about in my first year.

This blog exists to demonstrate my understanding on rhetorical criticism as I learn about it throughout my semester.  I will be writing about the different topics that will be covered throughout this semester in Rhetorical Criticism from neo-Aristotelian criticism to pentadic criticism.  I also hope that those of you who read this will be able to expand on your understanding of the different types of rhetorical criticism.  I hope that this blog will also help explain to others what rhetoric means and the different interpretations and definitions.
