Rhetorical Modes Project
For the next two weeks, we are working on the Rhetorical Modes project. Students will work in small groups to learn about a rhetorical mode and prepare materials to teach the class about that mode. We will be studying narration, description, definition, comparison and contrast, division and classification, and cause and effect. We will work on the project in class Feb 24-March3 and begin presentations on Wednesday, March 9. I'm looking forward to some great presentations!
After the Rhetorical Modes Projects, we will begin on argumentation; this unit will include a research project on a topic of your choice. Then we will move on to a unit on synthesis. We will continue to work every week on voice (diction, details, imagery, tone, syntax) and sentence composing. Once a week we will also do multiple choice practices with reading passages.
