Product Description
Assess students' understanding of claims, data, and analysis to ensure a clear rhetorical analysis essay. Assess students' ability to write a concise, persuasive thesis, strong claim, supportive data, and thorough analysis. Prior to grading students' in-class, typed essay, I ask that they:
Bold the thesis statement, Bold the claim/topic sentence of each body paragraph, Underline the data/quotations they provide to demonstrate their claim per paragraph, and Italicize the analysis they provide to demonstrate how their quotation choice proves their claim and therefore their thesis.
By requiring them to take these steps, it is easy for them to identify whether or not each paragraph supports the thesis. It helps visual learners gauge each paragraph for organization.
If you have students hand-write their essay, they could simpy highlight their claim, data, and analysis in different colors and create a key.
Common core standards addressed (literature standards depend on whether or not the rhetorical analysis passage if fictional or informational): RL1/RI1, RL3/RI3, RL5/RI5, RL6/RI6, W1, W9, L3, L5, L6
Key words: AP English Language and Composition, Advanced Placement, high school, analyze literature, essay rubric
