technology in Hess and trees in Wohlleben

 In 200–300 words (and no more than 400; in total, about 15–25 lines), address the following: ·In no more than four sentences each for Hess (2014) and Wohlleben (2016), summarize their overall thesis, 1–2 main claims, and how those main claims are supported; ·And address one of the following: A) Through Hess as a model, discuss how well Burke’s theories apply (or don’t apply) to understanding key issues in rhetoric and technology; or B) Explain what looking at nonhumans as agents (technology in Hess and trees in Wohlleben) offers rhetorical theory, namely how it adds to or challenges assumptions about rhetoric as a human-centered activity. You may include an example to demonstrate these implications, but make sure to directly address at least one element of Borchers & Hundley’s Ch. 5 and/or Ch. 7 in your explanation. Grading Criteria: Again, touch on each component, reach the word count, follow proper citation guidelines for paraphrases and quotes, and submit on-time. Anything thoroughly addressing these elements will receive full or close to full credit. The objective is to practice engaging with the readings.
