These two assessments work as either 2 final assessments or a pre-test, post-test for a rhetorical analysis unit. They can also be used as a formative assessment as students practice rhetorical analysis skills. The skills focuses are on identifying ethos/pathos/logos in a speech, and explaining how the writer uses this language to appeal to a specific audience. Each speech is included in the document with specific annotation instructions and analysis questions, along with the scoring rubric printed on each document. Perfect for AP LANGUAGE!
In Illinois, we are required to set Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) and measure student growth as part of our evaluation. I am proud to share these with fellow teachers in the hope that you can spend less time creating assessment tools and more time helping your students grow!
