Product Description

These are two two-page generalized sheets that I've used when I've taught rhetoric, journalism, informational text, and nonfiction writing. They are geared towards helping students improve their nonfiction reading and analysis skills. On both, I provide certain criteria for students to identify in a short piece of reading and boxes for students to record their reflections/analysis.

The first form has two parts - the first using the great SOAPSTone acronym and the second asking them to look for specific rhetorical devices (there's also a list of devices for them to choose from). The second form asks for a few basic criteria (speaker, audience, purpose), but mainly emphasizes the three rhetorical appeals (pathos, logos, ethos), providing space for them to analyze selected quotes that exemplify each appeal.

I think these sheets can be easily implemented in any unit that has students encountering nonfiction/informational texts, regardless of subject area!
