As we venture into weeks of test prep in this unique situation, I just want to say that you are doing an AMAZING job juggling the demands of both work and personal life. Our current environment requires us to adapt, and we shall. We are resolute. We are resilient. We are teachers. I will collaborate with anyone who wishes to be part of this blog to share best practices when teaching the rhetorical analysis essay. You will get credit for your creativity. Let’s do this!!!
Since our students will not be able to annotate directly on the passage, I created a handout for notes to assist them with a close reading of the prompt and passage.
- Prompt and Passage Notes handout
- Rhetorical Appeals and Devices handout
- Sentence Starters handout credit to our AP Summer Program teachers Amy Chapman and Sarah Orgil
- Strong Verbs and Transitions handout
