PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

WHAT IS IT?
★ An anchor chart that can be blown up and posted in your room
★ A one-page quick reference for students to use all year when analyzing authors craft and rhetorical devices.

WHAT'S THE CONTENT?
★ 7 Rhetorical Devices Defined and Compared to a Tool
★ Purpose for each Rhetorical Device Clearly Explained
★ All 3 Sides of the Rhetorical Triangle Included & Labeled
★ Author's Craft & Rhetorical Device Defined

HOW DOES THIS RELATE TO COMMON CORE/ TN READY?
How do you teach students to trace and evaluate the argument in a text -or- analyze the structure of a text and how each section contributes to the central idea?

This is dense content, especially for middle schoolers; these are foundational CCCS (and/or TNReady) standards.

To analyze the effectiveness of an argument, students must start by recognizing, identifying, and analyzing author's craft (the tools each author uses to develop his/her central idea).

Author's craft is made up of rhetorical devices; this anchor chart likens the 2 to a woodworker and his/her toolbox.

Terms are defined, compared to a tool, and explanation of how/why to use them support struggling students.

HOW DO I USE IT?

With a concept as tricky as author's craft, students need a quick reference for the year. Give this to students as a guide, and use mini-lessons to teach each rhetorical device.

Hang it in your room as a constant reference for students.

Use the analogy of a toolbox to continue reinforcing that author's craft is how an author conveys the message is different that what he/she says.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?
★ PPT Anchor Chart
★ PDF formatted as an 8.5 by 11 (ready to print)
