Product Description
In 1991, the AP English Language and Composition exam used a passage written by Igor Stravinsky on comparing composers and conductors. The great ego involved for creating and performing music is discussed.

There are several links to videos, interviews, resources for analyzing the argument that Igor Stravinsky makes. Also included in the resource is a documentary about Stravinsky’s Journeys, a Ted TALK on composers and various videos on the impact of Rites of Spring.

The lesson features a link to the 1991 AP English Language and Composition prompt analyzing the Stravinsky passage, as well as a graphic organizer designed as a rhetorical triangle where students will look for appeals and rhetorical devices. Students will craft an argumentative thesis sentence. Instructions and strategies are included on how to teach a rhetorical précis, and hold an inner and outer Socratic Circle.

These lessons fit any Honors Literature class, Pre-AP, American Literature, AP English Language or Literature class to prepare students for AP English Language exams, Common Core extended response assessments, American Literature Course exams, the SAT and ACT essay and critical thinking activities.

The packet includes complete lessons, Common Core standards, essential and key questions.
