This is an organized compiled set of text only.
Common Core Curriculum ELA Grade 10 Rhetoric Unit.
I am currently working on organizing and compiling lesson plans, informal and formal assessments, and project assignments to go along with this set of texts. I have included the web address in the footnote of each text which will allow teacher and student to access these texts online. These texts are listed in the order in which students will use them in the unit.
"In this unit, students engage with texts that have persuasive power and examine how argument is created. The variety of texts allows students to evaluate the impact of occasion and audience upon the use of rhetorical appeals in a variety of media. Through this set, students will come to understand the immeasurable power of words and language and develop an understanding of the subtle yet important differences between argument, persuasion, and propaganda." http://www.louisianabelieves.com/
