This PowerPoint contains the outline for a rhetorical analysis paper as well as examples of an introductory paragraph, body paragraph, and conclusion. This is meant as a first step to rhetorical analysis. There are sentence starters and fill in the blank sentences to help guide students through a new type of writing. The examples are of an advertisement. However, students can apply the outlines to a more complex text. At the end of the PowerPoint, you will find a rubric and possible essay prompt for analyzing a commercial. This rubric can also be used to score rhetorical analysis essays on non fiction documents.
