For your final, you will be analyzing your own speech using the rhetorical strategies we learned this semester. You will receive a copy of your own speech to analyze during the exam.

Be sure to review the following:

  • Aristotle’s Rhetorical Triangle (Ethos, Pathos, Logos)
  • Diction Techniques (Parallel Structure, Anaphora, Polysyndeton; denotation and connotation)
  • Sentence Expansion (remember to use proper punctuation!)
  • Symbolism/Characterization (Ethan Frome, Fences) (short answer)
  • Short speech analysis (short answer)

All presentations from this marking period are available on the site. See you soon!
