37 slides! Recognizing the diction being used in a text is critical for passing the AP Language and Composition test. In this detailed, thorough presentation students will do the following: Read a chapter from The Grapes of Wrath; answer questions on the chapter; take notes on diction; analyze the diction of certain excerpts from the chapter; analyze diction in another article; write a rhetorical analysis of diction; and more!
Note: The Grapes of Wrath chapter is an intercalary, stand alone chapter; there is no need to have read the entire novel. The richness of Steinbeck's language offers the students many different complex looks at diction. Link to chapter provided.
