Rhetorical Pyramids: Rhetorical Triangle In 3D!


What are “rhetorical pyramids”…? A lovely pattern that prompts your students to condense their rhetorical analysis into several “triangles” — to be cut out, folded, and taped, forming an origami pyramid of analytical glory.

This is a fun little activity that promises to engage your kiddos while conducting some high level analyses. (Teaching middle school? This is perfect. Teaching AP? Your students will swoon over the prospect of pairing some arts and crafts with the rigorous rhetorical analysis that’s sure to follow.)

Product Description

The “Rhetorical Pyramids” lesson is evergreen (i.e. it’s an awesome lesson all-year-round), but can be particularly fun around the holidays and/or any other time you’d like to decorate your classroom with ornate student products that show off their blossoming minds!

Whether you’re introducing rhetorical analysis in September (and sprucing up your room for back-to-school-night) or you’re reinforcing their learning in December (and looking forward to dangling their analytical ornaments from your ceiling tiles), this lesson is easy and awesome.  Just print, copy, and go!

TeachArgument represents the efforts of passionate educators across the country to inspire their students to become lifelong learners, thinkers, and lovers of literacy. All of our resources are consistent with this goal; every lesson and unit plan, every game, and every pop culture analysis was created with the intention of enhancing learning, deepening thinking, and fostering a love for reading and writing. It is our pleasure to share this vision and these materials with like-minded educators. You will notice that our resources deal primarily with “argument” — that is, rhetorical analysis, argumentative writing, and critical thinking. We are fortunate to work with teachers at almost every grade level, college writing professors, school administrators, and educational researchers. In turn, our materials are privileged to have been impacted by each of their perspectives. We build our resources on a Common Core framework, integrate the kind of thinking that is essential for success next generation tests, incorporate pedagogical strategies that align with new teacher evaluation frameworks, and all the while, hold true to the things we are most truly passionate about: literature, language, and learning.
