If there is an issue that needs to be addressed before the start of class, feel free to email me at ggraham@corinth.k12.ms.us. or speak with me before the due date. Any assignment turned in late will start at a 20pt. deduction for each day the assignment is late.  

 

The AP Rhetorical Devices List needs to be reviewed throughout the summer. Students will be quizzed throughout the first 9-weeks on the following terms. Students are encouraged to use index cards to write additional meanings and extra examples to assist in learning these literary devices.

Thanks,

Ms. Graham
