Rhetorical Analysis   

1        139

Students will analyze the impact of the author's choices regarding how to develop and relate elements of a story or drama—including complex sets of ideas, sequences of events, and use of figurative language and rhetorical devices—and explain how these elements interact and develop over the course of the text. Students will be able to identify how figurative language, rhetorical devices, allusions, and comparisons impact the work and create an effective argument or a particular mood (e.g., dark and scary) in an argumentative work or dramatic narrative, respectively.
