Help students master the art of rhetorical analysis with five annotation and critical thinking stations. Annotation Stations are a perfect way to differentiate and provide structured work time as students practice analyzing rhetorical techniques. Use them with ANY informational text. Each station has instructions for an Annotation Action (recorded on the teacher-provided text) and Thinking Action (recorded on the graphic organizer).
•Annotation Stations Graphic Organizer (black and white)
•Five Annotation Station Task Cards (color)
•Color Card Backs
•Exit Ticket (Ticket Out The Door)
•Six Station Signs (color)
These stations are perfect for students who have had an introduction to the rhetorical triangle but need practice with rhetorical analysis. These stations assume background knowledge in ethos, pathos, logos, diction/connotation, and identifying main idea/purpose/audience.
This activity is an excellent way to help students "work" a text before completing more formal analytical writing. Just add your own text!
