Summary

In an effort to determine whether instruction in the tagmemic discovery procedure significantly improves the student's ability to inquire into ill-defined problems and to communicate the results clearly and persuasively, an experimental course based on the first half of Richard Young, Alton Becker, and Kenneth Pike's "Rhetoric: Discovery and Change" was taught to twelve University of Michigan seniors, and nine tests were conducted to assess changes in the students' rhetorical skills. Results provided support for the proposition that strong personal involvement in an intellectual activity and substantial knowledge of the subject tend to improve the quality of what is written. Students improved in their ability to analyze problematic situations and to state problems. The results of their explorations or problematic data were more complex and varied; they became more sophisticated in testing hypotheses for adequacy; and they wrote essays that were more understandable and persuasive at the end of the course.
