Rhetorical devices: Designing the main body of your essay
In this lesson, we will be looking at the main body of our essay, before piecing everything together. Firstly, we will return to our essay plan and look at how to build the main body of our response, thinking about the function of the paragraph, the desired effect on the reader and the types of rhetorical devices that might be best to choose. We'll do this as a slow write to give you time to think about your options. At the end of the lesson, we’ll critique our writing and compare to the model answer for fluency and control. Finally, there will be a quiz to recap on our learning.
