What educators are saying

Great way to push my sixth graders to think about their evidence choices while writing and tracing arguments
This resource is perfect for beginning or reviewing Ethos, Pathos, and Logos with students. The color coding especially really helps them keep the 3 straight in their heads!


Teach rhetorical devices through movement and color-coding! This rhetorical appeal lesson will help students understand Aristotle's rhetorical triangle through a kinesthetic strategy and then will give students a highlighting technique to apply to any rhetorical analysis!

No matter the rhetorical writing prompt, reading analysis, or propaganda scrutiny, this color-coding activity proves to be a great way to analyze rhetorical appeals. It works well with English, history, and speech classes. This rhetorical activity is also a fantastic way to incorporate self-assessment in argumentative writing!

You will get:

⭐A movement strategy to teach the rhetorical triangle
⭐A presentation to teach rhetorical devices
⭐A printable reference graphic for rhetorical appeals
⭐An example paragraph with each appeal and answer key
⭐Three commercial links with persuasive techniques
⭐An editable slide for further rhetorical examples

✅ Use digitally or print!
