The Rhetomatic provides a structured inquiry approach for introducing students to rhetorical analysis. Rhetomatic uses the concept attainment model to provide students with an opportunity to construct their own knowledge about key rhetorical concepts.
In short, this approach provides students with examples and unexamples of each concept, prompting students to explore their own definitions for the rhetorical devices being introduced. In giving students the opportunity to understand these terms in an inquiry-based fashion, they are given ownership of the concepts and learn them deeply, on their own terms.
Rhetomatic is formatted as a Microsoft PowerPoint slideshow, and comes loaded with twelve key rhetorical concepts: ethos, pathos, logos, kairos, purpose, counterargument, imagery, hyperbole, anaphora, antimetabole, anachronism, and zeugma. Additionally, five pre-formatted teacher templates are included so that any concept can be easily integrated into the slideshow.
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.
