The following 2 rhetorical analysis prompts for The Other Wes Moore are modeled after the AP Language and Composition rhetorical analysis prompts. Each prompt gives context and a specific passage from the book, as well as a rhetorical analysis question, asking students to analyze Moore's rhetorical choices.
The Other Wes Moore is our 2016 summer read. However, even if a student hasn't read the book, they can still respond.
While they are modeled after the AP exam, the difficulty of the questions are appropriate for any advanced high schooler (9-12).
An instructor could use the prompt(s) as bell work, a close reading activity, and/or a writing assessment based on the ability of his/her students.
