42 slides! Recognizing syntax is one of the most challenging aspects of 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 syntax; analyze the syntax of certain excerpts from the chapter; analyze syntax in another article; write a rhetorical analysis of syntax; 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 syntax. Link to chapter provided.
