Vocabulary: Tone word Grammar: Pronouns Scoring Rubric and Graph Review Timed Rhetorical Analysis Quiz on Millers The Crucible Assign homework By the end of class today, we will analyze how an author shifts the tone and argument of a speaker to meet his or her rhetorical purpose.
APOLOGETIC (adj.) What does this word mean, especially if you know what it means to apologize to someone? When would an author choose to use this tone? To achieve what purpose? Or to write in which form or genre? Submit your homework to the tray.
We know that pronouns replace or reference nouns. ANTECEDENT – the noun that the pronoun replaces or references (You will see this word on the AP exam!!!) Examples: When Sylvia saw the puppies, she called to them, and they ran to her. My roommate lost her keys. The cat sunned itself. Everybody screamed! You should read those magazines. Who will stay after school for help? The principal, who hires the teachers, also disciplines students.
Pronouns should agree with (or match) their antecedents in number and gender. 1. The girl felt proud of itself. 1. Each student has their own textbook. 1. Everyone loves his free time. 1. One of the actresses forgot their lines. 1. The car went over the bridge just before it fell into the water.
Pronouns should also agree with (or match) their antecedents in reference to people versus objects. Who/Whom reference people, That/Which reference objects 1. The student that completed all his homework passed the class. 1. The essay who did not have a strong thesis statement received a low score. 1. The teacher, which everyone loved, retired this year.
