During this blended learning, self-paced unit, students utilize rhetorical analysis to evaluate the effectiveness of speeches and informational texts. Students start the unit by taking a diagnostic test, and, if needed, completing a writing boot camp. Then, students complete several analytical exercises focused on logical fallacies and rhetorical analysis. Throughout the unit, students engage with political cartoons, famous speeches from American history, and popular culture to develop an understanding of rhetorical analysis. The unit concludes with students writing a five-paragraph rhetorical analysis.
