Rhetorical Pyramid: Analysis 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.)
