This Animal Farm assignment asks students to take a close look at Old Major's speech and to compare it to Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have a Dream" speech. Then, students will check out other famous speeches to learn more about the power of rhetoric to persuade. Finally, they will write and present their own inspirational speeches.
Included: a handout on rhetorical devices, and a rubric for assessing the speeches.
