Rhetorical Strategies; Hamlet Essay

11 May

9th Grade: Today we will take some notes on rhetorical strategies.

Next we will begin writing the Central Idea paper about the Fidget Spinner article.

Here’s the question:

Your Task: Closely read the text provided and write a well-developed, text based response of two to three paragraphs. In your response, identify the central idea of the author and analyze how the author’s use of one writing strategy (literary element or literary technique or rhetorical device) advances this idea. Use strong and thorough evidence from the text to support your analysis. Do not simply summarize the text.

Here’s the template we have discussed: Task 3 Common core


12th Grade: Today we will be working on our Hamlet Essay:

  • Is Hamlet a virtuous, righteous, justified character? Give examples and lines from the text to support your answer. What does he do right? What does he do wrong? Take a position and argue it. Do not say he is a little bit of both!

You essay should have an intro, 3 bodies, and a conclusion. We will type it up tomorrow in the lab A206. Today we will discuss how to organize the paper and find textual evidence to support our position.
