The Five Fold Way of Rhetoric (English 15 Style)


  • Agents and Actions: Is there an Agent and an Action in every sentence? ( Proper Use of Active and Passive Voice)


  • Old Information to New: Does each sentence move from old information to new? (Information Flow)


  • Does the author argue for a consistent thesis? (Enthymeme)


  • Does the argument consider, develop and respond to counter-arguments? (Responding to Audience, Inhabiting a Persona)


  • Has the author worked with an editor to revise spelling, grammar, medium and format? (Process)


As you follow the Five Fold Way for your assignments, you may want to review the English department's grading standards. TheKemBlog
