Lesson Description

Wondering exactly what you can expect to find in this lesson?  Look no further!  This lesson bundle includes:

  • An eight page guided rhetorical analysis to scaffold students’ thinking as they closely read and analyze this complex argument
  • A fun new activity designed to measure and analyze the role that rhetorical appeals (ethos, pathos, logos) play in this argument.  (You’re going to love the rhetorical appeal-o-meter — and, what’s more, this activity can easily be repurposed for any text your students are asked to analyze!)
  • A visual rhetorical analysis activity that prompts students to consider how the corresponding music video contributes to or impacts the argument developed in the lyrics
  • An engaging comparative analysis task that asks students to consider “Circles” side-by-side with other texts that use similar language.
