Students should see and hear this speech, as they follow along with the script. In this packet, I have provided some context for young readers/listeners, the speech itself, as well as some thoughtful questions. Students will consider the audience and purpose of King's powerful speech. They will then analyze the rhetorical strategies inherent in the speech, the ethos, pathos, logos, and sense of kairos King employs throughout. This is such an important speech, and my questions guide students through a close reading of the rhetorical strategies employed. Students will be challenged and moved!
