Worksheet includes a graphic organizer for visual students. The objective of the worksheet is to analyze specific quotes from the speech, identifying the rhetorical device, categorizing the device as either a trope or scheme, and describing the effect of this device. These analytical strategies reinforce the questions "What is said? How is it being said? What is the effect?" that all AP Language students should use when evaluating rhetoric in nonfiction. This assignment is great for collaborative partner work or individual work.
