Rhetorical Devices are Everywhere! Digital and Paper/Pencil
Use your students' visual intelligence to help them understand how arguments are made. Your students will remember these 31 literary devices when they find them in photos from around the world! Seeing literary terms in images will help your students see them in their everyday lives, identify them in written texts, and use them in their own writing.
This PAPER/PENCIL AND DIGITAL product includes two slides per device, one with an engaging image suitable for discussion and the second slide with the key and origin of the image.
After discussing the devices found in each image, students can create their own versions of the slideshow, share them, or use the slides as flashcards or for games. Teachers can print them as posters and use them throughout the school year. This product is perfect for face-to-face classrooms, distance learning platforms, or even as part of a literacy center.
Use the images for creative writing or research prompts as well.
The slides are also perfect to help your students understand other elements of rhetoric (the art of argument).
By knowing the origin of the photo, students can discuss the possible situation or context (kairos), the purpose (telos), as well as The Appeals (pathos, logos, ethos) present in each image. Your students will engage in higher level thinking, as they use visual evidence to support their own arguments.
This product includes an editable PowerPoint Presentation as well as a Google Slideshow.
