Rhetoric and Writing


My student teacher, Rob, filmed my AP Language and Composition class as I taught about one of the five canons of rhetoric, Invention. Invention helps writers, and AP students, gather ideas for “the best available means of persuasion.”

During the discussion we reference a couple of AP Test responses that we reviewed in an earlier lesson. One earned an 8, a very high score, and the other, that a student quotes as saying, “Canada is part of Europe,” got a 2.

Curious about the smudges on our foreheads? As the students and icons in the classroom indicate, this is an all-girls Catholic high school, and we filmed on Ash Wednesday.

Been there, done that? Or wannna go? Let me know!
