The Writer’s Toolbox teaches students to identify, appreciate, and use rhetorical devices. Every lesson begins with a simple explanation of one of the rhetorical devices, along with examples from literature, oratory, and real life. The lesson closes with suggestions on the best way to begin using the device. After each lesson are exercises that encourage students to recognize and use the tool for themselves. Students will explore ways words work and develop an appreciation for the well-crafted phrase using time-tested tools called rhetorical device.
