2 Reading and Collaborating
Hand out hard copy of speech text for students to reference when responding to the questions. Students will read over speech as a group, and locate where the best use of rhetorical appeals/devices are in the speech.
In groups, students will create a google doc for collaboration/listing rhetorical devices/appeals. Once they finish this, they will start creating their own modern-day persuasive speech.
4 Group Speech
