This lesson was designed to introduce Advanced Placement students to the art of thinking and writing rhetorically. By using terms associated with comedy combined with television/radio shows familiar to students, the process is made relevant and much easier to comprehend. The handout is given to students and the terms explained. After understanding is achieved, the students watch the episode "The Pageant" from The Andy Griffith Show. Students identify the literary terms evident in the episode, the sources of the comedy, and why the creators used said sources. This process of thinking and writing is crucial to the the rhetorical analysis (FRQ2). Other clips from the following are shown to continue this practice: Abbott and Costello, Laurel and Hardy, Bambi (twitterpated scene), clips from Friends, The Three Stooges, and The Marx Brothers. Students truly enjoy this process and activity. Any comedy clip can be used. Students learn that all comedy is not side-splittingly funny - that some comedy is funny because it is NOT funny or that it is funny due to the ridiculous nature of the humor. Enjoy!
