This SOAPSTone graphic organizer uses the popular SOAPSTone strategy for written analysis. SOAPSTone is an acronym for Speaker, Occasion, Audience, Purpose, Subject, and Tone. It is a rhetorical analysis model commonly used for text analysis, planning original texts, and writing about already written texts. Basically, this model involves a series of different questions related to the text, which the students should ask themselves after reading the text and then answering them in the sheet.
The organizer has multiple questions related to the SOAPSTone model with adequate space for the students to fill in the answers. While writing the answers, the students should also cite specific evidence to support their answers. This organizer can be used for analyzing many different types of texts, including journal articles, speeches, novels, fictional stories, and non-fictional pieces.
