If you’re looking to teach synthesis and rhetorical analysis in the most compelling way possible — look no further.  Our rhetorical analysis video (embedded below) provides scaffolding for conducting this kind of analysis using lyrics from two texts — our authors?  Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez.

The corresponding lesson plans and materials place an additional emphasis on synthesis, on compare and contrast, and analysis.  The materials include a two-pronged essay prompt (…one for traditional high school students, and a second with for your more ambitious pupils…).
