Product Description
This is an essay that my AP English Language and Composition class wrote this year. The prompt asks students to analyze the rhetorical devices that Patrick Henry uses to create his argument. The assignment could be adapted for any American literature class as well. By annotating the text together and discussing the speech in class, by standard level students were also successful with this essay. The text of the speech, a graphic organizer, instructions for annotating, and a rubric for grading are included. Reading the passage, annotating it, discussing it, and writing the essay takes several class periods; and the students feel very accomplished after completing the assignment.
