Rhetorical Analysis Assignment
Discussion on "Everything is an Argument"
These are techniques to foster a better understanding for reading.
- Teach critical reading overtly: "When you read this, think about XXX." Give a purpose to reading.
- Questioning: prompts, quizzes, etc.
- Modeling: Reading aloud in class. Talk about how you're reading. What are you thinking? "think aloud protocol"
- Intensive Strategies: Reading guides built of statements, not questions.
a. Level 1: Reading the lines (main ideas) - true/false, factual information, w/page reference
b. Level 2: Read between the lines (inference) - This is valid or not. Provide evidence to support.
c. Level 3: Read beyond the lines. Students make connections to readings, course content or lived experience. Students must provide evidence to support.
Locate and apply Intensive Strategy to a quote:
- Introduce topic or idea. Each person has their own distinct interpretation and perspective.
- Utilize quote
- Explain quote with connection, example, or experience
