This product includes two rhetorical analysis prompts from chapter 14. For this lesson I have students read and annotate the first prompt's passage and then create a mind-map writing plan for a thesis that I provide them.
For the second prompt, the student must write her own thesis and create a mind-map writing plan. You can stop there and use it as a discussion tool, or have students actually write the essay(s).
I found this activity very beneficial to helping students with essay planning for AP Language & Composition prompts. However, this is a lesson that can work well with college preparatory students.
