This Nonfiction Independent Book Project BUNDLE includes the two products discussed below. I have my students work towards the book presentation for the end of first semester and the written argument book project for second semester in preparation for the argument essay on the AP Lang test.
This creative presentation is an effective and fun way to create an oral argument for an independent nonfiction novel, using rhetorical strategies studied throughout the semester or year and to experience appealing to a specific audience through logos, pathos, and/or ethos. The rhetorical triangle of speaker, audience, and purpose comes alive in this project. Please review the Teacher Notes in the preview for more details. Tailored to AP Language and Composition but easily adaptable for other Language Arts classes. Scoring Guide included.
After completing an independent nonfiction book, students prepare a written outline of an essay, which includes three major arguments from the novel supported by in-depth textual evidence and commentary, all in bullet-point form. Included is the student handout, outlining the expectations and format. A full-length exemplar of this written argument is also included. The scoring guide makes this assignment very easy to grade.
