Product Description
Take your students from rhetorical neophytes to old pros with this Intro to Rhetoric unit PowerPoint. The result of nine years of AP Language teaching experience, this comprehensive, 50-slide PowerPoint presentation serves as an introduction to rhetoric for AP English Language and Composition. It uses a synthesis of CIcero's canons of rhetoric and David Jolliffe's Rhetorical Framework as an organizing principle, proceeding from the rhetorical situation through the rhetorical appeals (invention), organization (arrangement), diction, and syntax (style). Throughout, the presentation includes examples, both original and drawn from various corners of literature, politics, and pop culture. In my course, students take notes on this presentation after reading MERE CHRISTIANITY and THIS BOY'S LIFE over the summer, but it is adaptable to any texts taught with rhetorical analysis in mind. Fully editable. See elsewhere in my store for related handouts and activities. (NOTE: Thumbnails do not reflect actual font appearance.)
