Super simple and straightforward, designed to work with any text during rhetorical analysis!
This download includes:
1. One editable organizer to help students craft an effective rhetorical analysis claim
2. One warm-up claim activity analyzing a car advertisement
Why I love this organizer:
I'm obsessed with color-coding, and this lends itself really well to that. Also, for high-flyers, once they master the basic necessities of a rhetorical claim, they can rearrange the components, add vocabulary, play with punctuation, etc. So make it whatever your students need! This is also really fun as a Do Now review and a way to feign ignorance when color-coding. Even better--have the students lead the color-coding process!
How it helped my students:
I teach a predominantly ELL population, but ALL students need help organizing their ideas. I see them approaching writing with confidence and helping their peers be successful, too.
