Product Description
These are basic questions and prompts that can be applied to just about any nonfiction passage or excerpt. Students are prompted to mark different devices such as highly connotative diction, sensory images, figurative language, and interesting or contrasting syntax. Students are then asked to list evidence and examples of clues to context, audience, purpose, and appeals. At the end of the activity, students are asked to summarize their learning by creating a statement that pulls together these different aspects. The worksheet includes a template for this summary sentence as well as an example. Because these questions and prompts are general, they can be easily adapted to a speech, a letter, an article, or any other relatively short work of nonfiction. It could also be adapted to a monologue or soliloquy in a work of fiction, particularly where a character is trying to persuade, explain, or describe.
