ENG 3U: Practice Test revisited

Ladies and gents,

It seems to me that yesterday’s practice test provides us with a perfect opportunity to conduct our first rubric-based observation. Here are your responsibilities:

  • You will work in small groups to review the practice test
  • I will provide you with a script from the Gordon Gecko speech. I have bolded numerous rhetorical devices to help you focus on ones you may have missed. Together, you need to identify the rhetorical devices used and explain their impact
  • You will also review both examples of satire. Make sure you agree on the object of ridicule and the examples that best support your interpretations.
