Thursday, January 5

Choice of vocabulary review or silent reading.

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:

  • Imagery
  • Allusions
  • 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.


FRIDAY, January 6: "The Right to Be Free" vocabulary unit 1 quiz.
TUESDAY, January 17: Midterm Exam.
