Product Description
How did Thomas Paine use logos, ethos, and pathos arguments to encourage American patriots to break away from their mother country? Integrate English/language arts instruction and social studies as students analyze excerpts from Thomas Paine's revolutionary document "Common Sense". Included are two pages of text with some of the most challenging vocabulary defined in the margins; a one-page graphic organizer that helps students pull out the main counterarguments with evidence Paine presents; and another two pages of close reading questions that help students find and identify Paine's diction and its effect, Paine's use of personification, and his argumentative appeals (logos, ethos, and pathos). "Common Sense" provides rich examples of the kinds of arguments students need to be able to understand while at the same time providing an interesting study in American History. An answer key is provided.
