Lots to learn today

Goal: Learn how to create a rhetorical precis.

Practice from yesterday.
Learn what a rhetorical precis is.
Play unscramble the precis

1. A little practice with Ethos, Logos, and Pathos: 
Open Undercover Parent.
Re-read looking for examples of ethos, logos and pathos. Highlight the examples you find, but color code them: green for ETHOSblue for LOGOS, andlavender/purple for PATHOS.
Compare what you find with your partner. 

2. Rhetorical Precis:
"A Rhetorical Précis, pronounced (pray-see), is a summary or abstract of a work. The Rhetorical Précis has a rigidly specific format.... It is important that you follow the format carefully. This is not an easy task. But it is a crucial step towards building critical reading ability...." (Oregonstate.edu)

Unscrambling a Precis: 
  1. Use THIS LINK to get a copy of a doc with a rhetorical precis. (Do not share it.)
  2. The sentences on this doc are out of order. 
  3. Rearrange them until you have a correct precis. 

Check out your new book if you haven't already. 
Return your group novel to the library.
