Product Description

What you will get:

-6 slides providing background/themes of the movement

-3 slides of rhetorical strategies (procatalepsis, antithesis, and parallelism)

This powerpoint is a brief overview of American Rationalism (the literary movement).

It introduces historical background, governing philosophies, and themes. I use this powerpoint to introduce the students to the major themes and ideas behind the movement before we begin reading.

At the end of the powerpoint, I also have a few slides of rhetorical devices that we will be looking at in the Rationalist texts. At this point, my students already have been introduced to things like SOAPStone and ethos/pathos/logos, so you may need to backtrack if you are focusing on rhetoric in Rationalism.
