Teacher Talk: Chunking RA - Managing the Rhetorical Analysis Task

September 21, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm CDT

"This class is too hard!" Many students say those very words when we first begin teaching them about rhetorical analysis. So we teachers need to provide our students with tools to tackle all the difficulties they come across in our class—including expectations for rhetorical analysis. In this session, we will discuss teaching students to “chunk" not only the passage, but their own essays as well.  By showing students ways to organize the Q2 essay with effectiveness, we also will teach them to organize many other types of writing assessments they may encounter, and during the session we will talk about best practices for doing just that. 


NOTE: All registered participants will receive an email approximately 48-72 hours before the start of the event with a URL to join the Zoom meeting. Please look in your junk or spam folders for this important email.
