Product Description
This lesson treats the famous scene from Shakespeare as a "non-fiction informational text" in the Common Core hierarchy. Because of this, it can be taught in isolation without reading the rest of the play or as a part of a larger study of Julius Caesar.

Major concepts being taught/ideas used in analyzing the speech include:
Elements of an argument - claim, counterclaim/objections, refutation/rebuttal of objections, reasons and evidence.
The 3 appeals - logical, emotional, ethical
Rhetorical techniques - parallelism, rhetorical questions, antithesis, repetition

This lesson addresses the Common Core ELA Reading Informational Text standards 1-6 and Speaking and Listening standard 3 because it is a pubic speech. It also asks students to analyze and later write an argument, Writing standard 1 and 4.
