Rhetorical Strategy of Classification and Division

Classification and Division refers to an authors choice to plan and organize an essay in a particular fashion. While some plans may be less convoluted than others, there is no one ideal way to organize text. Though there is freedom in that, it is important to remember that as an author, it is required to state the system being used so that the reader is able to follow along and understand what is being written. As a reader, it is important to actively evaluate the author’s choice in system and determine whether or not it was an effective strategy to relay information.
