Hello Public Speakers,
1.) Select one of the many excellent speeches collected at www.americanrhetoric.com ... from any of their collections ("Top 100," "Movie Speeches," "Speech Bank," etc.)
2.) Read your speech, or watch and listen if those options are available
3.) Find the rhetoric! Find examples of the following rhetorical techniques: allusion, analogy, anecdote, antithesis, irony, negative definition, parallel structure, quotation, and rhetorical question. Your analysis can take the form of a chart, a short essay, or a series of Google Presentation slides--whichever you prefer. Please be ready to talk about your speech and share your analysis with the class.
As usual, if you have any Q's, please email me and I will try to be helpful :)
Happy Snow Day,
