How to Survive AP Language and Composition Rhetorical Devices Memorize ALL rhetorical devices
Know the importance, in context, of each device Rhetorical Precis The four most difficult sentences EVER!! Each sentence is carefully crafted to explain the author, the title, the thesis, the tone, and the rhetorical devices. Each sentence has it's own purspose and motive to capture the real theme and topic of the reading. The Three Essays Rhetorical Essay:
The rhetorical essay analyzes and define the rhetorical strategies used by the author to create his/her position. The rhetorical stragies guide the reader to comprehend the main ideas and the tone of the passage.
- You will be given an essay passage of any sort. The passage will then need to be analyzed and broken down to find the rhetorical devices and explain how they convey the main ideas of the author. Argumentative Essay:
The argumentative essay is based on persuasion and convincing the audience to see your point of view.You will learn different types of argument techniques and ways to affectively present your views. Synthesis Essay:
We see this essay like an argumentative essay, but instead of just relying on your own intuitions, you are also given sources to incorporate in your argument.

DON'T FORGET THAT THREE SOURCES ARE REQUIRED IN THE SYNTHESIS ESSAY TO DEVELOP YOUR POSITION!!!! THE FAMOUS HARKNESS TABLE (ALSO A PAIN...JK) Maria's Point of View: Deidre's Point of View: Interesting
Fun
Very, extremely talkative
It is better than just sitting in
class doing individual work
The circles are the best part of my day :)
I like talking about the rhetorical strategies and
making up the effects they create on the reading.
P.S. if the discussion is going dry, make up an EASY question
that everyone can relate to and pitch in. It is much better to stay quiet and
soak in the information being discussed
But, just to get the daily grade talk about
ONE rhetorical device and elaborate
If the class encourages you to talk, do so and
then quit

P.S. If you can't find anything to talk about, elaborate
on your favorite quote and explain how it makes you feel-no
one will comment on your explaination, which is good IF YOU ARE EXTREMELY TALKATIVE

IF YOU ARE EXTREMELY QUIET THE MOST EVIL THING:
THE RESEARCH PAPER The research paper in divided into different sections,
that will help you craft the best reasearch paper EVER!
From this ardous work you will learn:
Citing
Parenthetical Citations
Develop a proper thesis
Well, crafty organization
And how to write a sixteen to twenty page research paper (its amazing) :)
She will work with you from the beginning to the end, from helping you
to develop your topic to correcting your rough draft. AP TESTING AND TIMING This is the day you have been preparing for, nerve recking but worth it. The best thing is to stay calm and do what you've been taught. It contains fifty-four questions that you do in sixty minutes, and three essays that will be written in a hundred and twenty minutes. This test takes a ton of pacing and time managing and a lot of individual strength. Prepare for your fingers to hurt, for your heart to be racing because you run out of time, and the PERFECT relief when its all done (unless you have another one). P.S. Is very helpful if you pace your self before the exam. :) When you learn to anotate, use the anotations for guidence in the multiple choice. The multiple choice question analyze a reading passage and focus heavily on the tone, the main ideas, and the rhetorical strategies. AP Multiple Choice
