Product Description
From Electric English...
This is a short activity on an excerpt from Stephen King's nonfiction piece, "The Danse Macabre" that asks the students to take a close look at how language is being used to persuade. Have the students quickly annotate it, paying special attention to Aristotle's proofs (Logos, Pathos, and Ethos). There are also a few questions that ask the students to consider King's purpose and intent. Then discuss it as a class. It is a super fun activity that gets the students considering language and word choice, but more importantly, there will be some very interesting conversation about the student's findings, views, and ideas. So much can be said with so few words, and our minds can pursue so many avenues depending on our experiences. This activity opens the kids eyes to that :)
