Introduced the task of writing a rhetorical analysis paper.
Finished reading Patrick Henry's address to the Virginia Convention and discussed meaning of unfamiliar words and confusing allusions.
Students began highlighting examples of rhetorical strategies, including:
- Rhetorical questions
- Emotionally loaded language/words or elevated language/word choices
- Repeated words
- Repeated sentence structures (parallel structure)
Will finish identifying and labeling examples as homework tonight.
