Becoming a master of rhetoric begins with understanding speaker, purpose, and audience. Determining your audience, purpose and speaker is the first thing any writer should do before putting pencil to paper. In this PowerPoint these different aspects of writing are covered and students are asked to think about decoding the most important parts of a text. Included are several opportunities for small group activity and notes. This PowerPoint is valuable for all audiences, including Advance Placement classes.
