Product Description
One of the best ways for AP Lang students and high school 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
*Antithesis
*Anadiplosis
*Anaphora
*Antimetabole
*Polysyndeton
*Epanalepsis

For eighteen text passages from President Trump's 2017 Inaugural Address 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 Trump's speech is not necessary for this activity, but it would enhance this activity. A full text version of President Trump's Inaugural Address can be found at the following link: https://www.whitehouse.gov/inaugural-address
