Spice It Up with Rhetorical Devices

Posted on December 7, 2013 at 1:23 PM Comments comments (0)
Dear students, parents, and teachers,

There are only a couple of weeks left before the holiday break. It's a great time to try out spicy rhetorical devices in your writing. Read the following document and imitate the examples. You could also practice by using the devices in sensory descriptions and short poems. Have fun with this!

MR. HOT AND SPICY (PDF — 3 MB)




Teachers: a great book on rhetorical devices is Pyrotechnics on the Pageby Ralph Fletcher:


Need more examples? Here are three awesome writers who use a lot of rhetorical devices:

Roald Dahl (James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, others)

Catherynne M. Valente (The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, others)

Ray Bradbury (Something Wicked This Way Comes, others) 

Happy writing and happy holidays!
