Page one of this two-page, editable Word file provides students with information on what is expected of their group for their presentation. Each group is given a single organizational pattern (exemplification, cause-and-effect, definition, comparison/contrast, classification/division) for which they teach the pattern, read a selection that exemplifies the patter, provides a visual, and creates a class activity. Each group member is also required to submit a paragraph toward a group paper.
The second page of this file is a rubric to score the presentation in its entirety.
While we used Patterns for College Writing: A Rhetorical Reader and Guide for our course textbook, this assignment can be used with any textbook or text selection.
