Review of Some Rhetorical Strategies
– the repeating of particular words, phrases, clauses, or structures.
– repetition of words or phrases at the beginning of clauses or sentences.
Example: “To everything there is a season: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal.”
– repetition of words or phrases at the end of clauses or sentences.
Example: “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child, but….”
– leaving out conjunctions in a list or series of words/phrases.
Example: “He was tall, dark, handsome.”
– inserting additional conjunctions into a list or series of words/phrases.
Example: “The runner passed the 10 mile mark and the 15 mile mark and the 20 mile mark and the 25 mile mark and stared at the finish line looming in front of him.”Slide12
Review of Some Rhetorical Strategies

Consider the argumentative essay you were asked to complete with the text “Eleven.” Let’s examine how different students supported their claim.
Teachers have been given a great responsibility to teacher our future generation, and part of the responsibility is ensuring that all students have the opportunity to learn; therefore, teachers must ensure that each student’s voice is heard as they educate.
: If teachers neglect certain students, those students might fall behind and struggle to succeed in the class.
: One of my best friends is very shy and struggles to speak out during class even to ask questions. I have watched her struggle through many classes because teachers rarely call on her or ask her opinion; however, in one class she seems to thrive. In this class the teacher finds ways to bring her into the conversation. She asks her opinion, and my friend often has some really great points to make. In this class, I watch my friend smile. I see how comfortable she feels and how she is beginning to ask questions without prompting from the teacher. I’ve watched her grade sore and her self-esteem rise. But it saddens me to think my friend could have been like this in all of her classes if the teachers would only allow her to have a voice.Slide16

Examining Your Rhetorical Precis
Franklin’s 1791 excerpt
The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
from his book explains his ideals of perfect human morals and how he plans to pursue the mastery of those virtues. Franklin uses listing to clearly display the virtues he finds valuable, and first person explanation of how he intends to learn them and in what order, as well as how and why he came up with the idea. The author’s purpose is to document his list of virtues, define those virtues, and write out a plan for how he plans to carry out the perfection of these traits himself.
