Hurricane Rhetoric 2017

The onset of major storm systems (i.e. hurricanes) creates a lot of opportunity for rhetoric — from politicians, corporations, and more.  This resource is an extension of our “evacuation rhetoric” lesson in that it provides a series of texts at varied levels that lend themselves nicely to rhetorical analysis.  Scroll down to for more details about this particular lesson…!

 

Rather than set a fixed price for this resource, you’ll be prompted to set your own price, as low as $0.99, and ALL proceeds will support hurricane relief.

Lesson Description

This resource is an extension of our “evacuation rhetoric” lesson in that it provides a series of texts at varied levels that lend themselves nicely to rhetorical analysis.  These texts can be used one by one with a whole class, differentiated by students, or, our preferred strategy, utilized as a “jigsaw” lesson with small groups.

This bundle includes a handout to guide students’ analysis, as well as the following text sets:

  • Excerpts from Florida Governor Rick Scott
  • Excerpts from Texas Governor Rick Abbott
  • Excerpts from Vice President Mike Pence
  • Excerpts from Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke
  • Excerpts from First Lady Melania Trump
  • Excerpts from President Donald Trump
  • Excerpts from an article describing JetBlue’s decision to cap evacuation flight costs at $99
