Product Description
One of the best ways for AP Lang students to understand and use parallel construction and other syntactical constructions is have them imitate successful authors' constructions.

Students will learn the following syntactical constructions:
*Parallel Construction
*Anaphora
*Antithesis
*Polysyndeton
*Asyndeton


For fifteen text passages from The Things They Carried, by Tim O'Brien, representing the above syntactical constructions, students will write commentary for the rhetorical effect the construction has on meaning. They will then write an original imitation of the structure, mimicking the author.

In my AP Lang classroom, students who practice imitating specific syntactical structures are more able to incorporate them successfully into their own writing!

*Note: Reading the novel The Things They Carried is not necessary for this activity, but it does complement a novel unit.

Check out the preview for more details!
