Throw out that old alphabetical glossary of rhetorical analysis terms, and give your students this engaging and helpful reverse-lookup glossary! Terms are grouped in categories of student-friendly language to help them confidently identify devices they encounter as they analyze nonfiction texts. This easy-print handbook also reviews the essentials of rhetorical analysis, provides spaces for students to add their own examples of devices, and provides lists of common tone words and analysis verbs to improve their writing! (Say farewell to "the author uses diction...")
I designed this to be useful enough for my AP Language and Composition testers but student-friendly enough for sophomores just learning about rhetorical analysis.
