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
*Antimetabole
*Anaphora
*Antithesis
*Polysyndeton
*Asyndeton
*Ellipsis

For eleven text passages from Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand, 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!

Suggested answer key included for linking structure to meaning.

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