Description

What does it take to win an argument? With these real-world rhetorical analysis materials, students will examine a short article on a high-interest topic, identify specific rhetorical tools (ethos, pathos, and logos), and determine whether the writer is ultimately effective in swaying the reader.

The essay in Real World Rhetoric #2 attempts to convince readers that parents who film their children’s punishments and post those videos online are creating more harm than good.

This download includes:

• A full-text copy of a public domain argument essay

• A paper-saving handout of short answer questions

• A detailed answer key to make grading easier and help the teacher lead a discussion of the answers

These materials were designed to help students begin the process of preparation for the analysis of argument prompts featured in the AP English Language and Composition exam, the GED Reasoning Through Language Arts essay, and the SAT essay.
