Rhetorical Analysis strategies

To prepare for our rhetorical analyasis on Atticus' closing speech, we began to look at the rhetorical strategies of ethos, logos, pathos, and various forms of logical fallacies. We'll continue tomorrow.

Finish rhetorical appeals/Atticus' speech

After finishing up identifying the various appeals of logos, pathos, and ethos, we turned back to Atticus' speech. In class they started working with partners to craft a one or two sentence summary of each of the 13 paragraphs of the speech. We'll continue this in class tomorrow.

Deconstructing Atticus' closing speech

Students spent most of the period working on summarizing Atticus' speech paragraph by paragraph. As they started to share their summaries, we realized that we probably need to work on writing summaries a bit more. No homework tonight.

Practicing writing summaries

We spent the whole period on this activity and will return to Atticus' speech on Monday.

S.M.E.L.L.
