Class Name Writing & Rhetoric 7/8
This week’s focus: Writing & Rhetoric 7 Part of Lesson 7 and lesson 8
In preparation for Schole support class: Please have Lesson 7 from page 97 to 101 (December) and Read the Ulysses S. Grant 119-126.
So let’s walk through what makes a great Encomium essay:
Start with an introduction that includes hyperbole a thesis and a transition sentence.
Detail your subject’s background. Consider his or her ancestors including parents, country, or education.
Support your thesis by telling your reader about your subject’s fine qualities. Consider his or her personal character, abilities or virtues
Support your thesis by telling about the persons career. Describe this person’s achievements or show how this person used his or her gifts for a good cause. Use a quote from the text to support your point of view.
Contrast the person with a lesser person in order to heighten your praise.
Write a conclusion.
To be completed for when we meet again: Ulysses S. Grant : pages 127 to 138.
Looking ahead to January: you will use the same Rubric on page 116 and hand in an essay on Susan B. Anthony for end of January.
