PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help your students make sense of how and why authors use of sentence structure to inform meaning with this set of 36 task cards. Each card features a different literary passage and prompt, asking students to identify the syntactical device being used and its effect.

The cards cover elements such as:
• Punctuation
• Sentence length
• Anaphora
• Sentence types
• Polysyndeton
• Rhetorical questions
• Apostrophe
• Rhetorical fragments
• and more!

Students can keep track of their work on the recording sheet. An answer key is provided.

These cards work well as an individual, paired, or group activity. You could also use them as bell-ringers or as quizzes. I've used these in my AP English Literature class with great success, as well as my college-prep classes.

The task cards include passages from The Great Gatsby, The Crucible, The Things They Carried, Ethan Frome, Jane Eyre, Brave New World, a variety of famous poems and short stories, and many more!
