A powerpoint about rhetoric and rhetorical devices - based mainly on the concept of the way language - both written and oral - affect people's perception of events - much the way the media spins a narrative, and people believe it. This powerpoint has collaborative activities in it so your kids can work in groups to understand key concepts. Also includes a good homework assignment that practically shows the effect of word choice on the way a situation is perceived.
