Product Description
One of the best ways for AP Lang and Honors English students to understand and use parallel construction and other syntactical constructions is have them imitate successful authors' constructions.

Students will learn the following syntactical constructions:
*Parallel Construction
*Epistrophe
*Anaphora
*Polysyndeton
*Antithesis


For sixteen text passages from Anthem, by Ayn Rand, representing the above syntactical constructions, students will write commentary for the rhetorical effect the construction has on meaning. They will then write an original imitation of the structure, mimicking the author.

In my AP Lang classroom, students who practice imitating specific syntactical structures are more able to incorporate them successfully into their own writing!

*Note: Reading the novel Anthem is not necessary for this activity, but it does complement a novel unit.
