2  Claim: “The Culminating Project should not be a graduation requirement in the Kent School District.”

3  Analogy: Compare to scene in film, TV show.  Anecdote: Personal story or hypothetical situation.  Rhetorical Question: Do you want to work in a menial job with tons of piles of paperwork?  Hypophora: What is the point of high school? To prepare us for life after graduation.

4  Distinctio: When I say ‘potential’ I mean the prospects of me getting a job after high school.  Parallelism: Not career project, or life project, but the Culminating project.  Anaphora: Projects for my life, projects for my career, not culminating projects.  Polysendeton: The CP gives high schoolers an illusion – and superfluous prerequisites – which are dull.

5  Antimetoble: The CP proves wasted time is time wasted.  Antithesis: By wasting time uploading documents for the CP, I am downloading my potential.  Asyndeton: The Culminating Project is rubbish, compost, sewage.  Allusion: Wasting time working on the CP makes me ponder my potential getting a job like I’m Hamlet, “To be or not to be.”

6  What makes a good Counterargument to the Rebuttal?

7 Claim - To function adequately in civic life, students must learn what causes racism. Faulty Assumptions  Racism is a thing of the past; therefore, students don’t need to bother with it.  Attack the warrant that their POV is based on.

8 Claim - To function adequately in civic life, students must learn what causes racism. Faulty Analysis  Only two percent of all reported crimes are racially motivated.  Their analysis of the information that supports their POV is wrong or their information is suspect.

9 Claim - To function adequately in civic life, students must learn what causes racism. Faulty Values  Who cares if students are racist?  The values or beliefs that their POV is based on is wrong.

10 Thesis - To function adequately in civic life, students must learn what causes racism. True but Irrelevant  Students are already familiar with racism; they don’t need to study it in school.  Their POV is true, but it is not relevant to this issue. Red Herring?

11 Is it a reasonable position? Is it a popular? Can you identify a specific audience who holds this POV? Is this a reasonable goal? Keep in mind, qualifiers should always begin with “In most cases,” “most people would agree,” etc.

12  Metonymy: The Committee = The School Board.  Euphemism: It = The School Board.  Procatalepsis: The KSD suggests students need a graduation requirement to prepare them for the working world. Most graduates do not envision a job that consists of tons of paperwork.  Hypophora: Does the KSD really believe a ton of paperwork will help us prepare to get a job? Apparently so. In most cases, uploading documents do not prepare high school graduates for the working world.

13  Syllogism: My friend Jordan is good at downloading movies. He is working at Staples. Thus, downloading movies leads to a job at Staples.  Enthymeme: The result of my friend Jacob downloading free music is he works at Staples.  Periodic Sentence: Even though I have completed my Best Works, Job Shadow, JRP, and senior presentation, that doesn’t mean I will get a job after graduation.  Cumulative Sentence: I write this essay out of frustration: the Job Shadow, JRP, or the senior presentation don’t prepare me for a job after graduation.

14  Take out your outline  Trying writing a hook, set-up, analysis, qualifier, set-up three different ways using three different rhetorical moves.
