This resource is now included in the Rhetorical Analysis BIG Bundle! Be sure to check this out before you buy this resource separately.
This graphic organizer will help students presented with any argumentative nonfiction text move from analysis to composition. After reading and analyzing how the author constructs his or her argument, students will identify the speaker, purpose and audience of the text, and record evidence of language and devices that appeal to ethos, pathos and logos. Finally, students complete the graphic organizer by constructing the thesis statement for a rhetorical analysis essay. This type of essay is the writing task for the SAT, and also one of the free response questions on the AP English Language and Composition Exam. Whether your students are preparing for one of these tests, or you are simply instructing and assessing the skills of rhetorical analysis, this is an English class must-have that pairs with any text.
This product includes an example filled-out copy to assist you in instruction and assessment.
