Next, you need to work on identifying rhetorical strategies and devices in actual written works. You might try jotting down your thoughts about how pieces you read are using rhetorical devices.
Make an effort when you read to seek out examples of the different rhetorical techniques at work. When you feel you can consistently identify these strategies at work in the writing of others, it's time to try your hand at using them yourself. Trying to apply the terms will help you learn the concepts much better than simple memorization.
To register for an AP Exam, the school will enroll the student in an “exam only” section in My AP.
Students should follow these steps: Please note that, if a school allows a student to register after the 11/15 deadline, there will be a $40 late exam fee.
When you're trying to learn these concepts, it's better to try to apply them—by seeing how other authors use them and using them in your own writing—than to just memorize the terms and their definitions.
The important thing is to understand the concepts, not just know the terms!
If I am delivering a congratulatory speech to awards recipients, the immediate context might be the awards presentation ceremony; the broader context might be the purpose or significance of the awards themselves.

Both reading and writing should make students aware of the interactions among a writer’s purposes, audience expectations, and subjects as well as how writing conventions and language contribute to effectiveness in writing.
