Help students shine on the written portion of any standardized test by teaching the skills they need to craft powerful, compelling arguments with Rhetorical Devices.

Students will learn to accurately identify and evaluate the effectiveness of rhetorical devices in not only famous speeches, advertisements, political campaigns, and literature, but also in the blog, newspaper, and magazine entries they read in their daily lives. Students will then improve their own writing strategy, style, and organization by correctly and skillfully using the devices they have learned.

Each device is illustrated with clear, real-life examples to promote proper usage and followed up with meaningful exercises to maximize understanding. Pointers are provided throughout this book to help your students develop a unique writing style, and cumulative exercises will help students retain what they have learned.

This package contains 30 copies of the Student Edition of Rhetorical Devices, plus a Teacher's Edition at no additional cost.

This is book helps students explore devices so that they can use them effectively in their own writing as well as recognize them in others' writings. The explanations are presented in a conversational tone. The exercises allow students to find the devices in other texts and also offers them the opportunity to create them in their own writing.
