Structure of the essay...?

What would you guys say about just following the main rhetorical devices as the passage unfolds? Like chronologically, instead of choosing a set few and talking about how they use them in different parts of the essay?

This is a great idea! It keeps you from device hunting and allows you to follow the natural line of reasoning the speaker has created.

Oh ok cuz this is what I usually do and I just think it’s easier for me to follow through the rhetorical choices as I see them unfold throughout the passage. I just didn’t know if it was ok since I didn’t necessarily separate them and talk about them as individuals in each paragraph

I didn’t know if this was the chunking thing that people keep mentioning

Yes! This is the method of chunking that has been mentioned here.

Oh ok thank you!
