This pair of graphic organizers can be used to introduce the terminology associated with the rhetorical triangle and then to analyze any informational/nonfiction text.
In my own classroom, I used this the first week of AP Language and Composition. I first presented the rhetorical triangle matching activity on the projector and had students label its parts on small whiteboards in groups. We discussed what each group thought and the groups voted on who they ultimately thought was correct. Then, I used a simple Google Slides presentation to present the correct lableing and definitions of each of the terms. I paired this with the first chapter of The Language of Composition.
Students completed the SOAPSTone using the first speech presented in the text, which was the 1939 Lou Gehrig Appreciation Day Speech by Lou Gehrig.
Once the terms have been introduced, the SOAPSTone template is broad enough to be printed and paired with ANY informational text.
