March 30, 2011 More Rhetorical Devices

On Wednesday we only had one hour classes, so I used the time to review the rhetorical structures and devices we covered on Monday. I gave a brief review slide show that you can check out by clicking on the link: Rhetorical Device Review Slide show The purpose of this slide show was to give more real life examples of rhetorical devices in action. As you review the slide show, see if you can guess what device is being used before revealing the answer at the top.

After the review, we worked in small groups to complete the following worksheet about Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. I handed out a copy of the speech to each group along with the following practice worksheet. Click on the link to download the I Have a Dream Rhetorical Device Chart.

This lesson was designed to reinforce what we learned on Monday. Tomorrow we will have a quick quiz over the rhetorical structures and devices we learned about his week.
