PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

From Electric English...
Words! Words! Words! Getting students to understand that word choice is paramount to understanding a writer's purpose should be one of the ultimate goals for English teachers. This powerpoint accompanies a short activity designed to further introduce the ideas of diction to your crew :) The activity asks the students to look at two surrender speeches from Chief Joseph and Black Hawk.; consider their choice of words; and analyze those choices using the LEAD method.

This powerpoint is a small part of a bigger unit, but, of course, if you have something already created that you would like to pair it with, the slideshow will stand on its own. These slides provide a visual and succinct way to dialogue with students about the ideas they will encounter during your lesson, and how these lessons connect with their real day-to-day lives. These particular questions focus on concepts and ideas the students should reflect upon while considering the surrender speeches for Chief Joseph and Black Hawk. And, yes, they are certainly applicable to Common Core Standards, but more importantly, these questions are just great teaching practices! Use them for what is best for you:)
