Students will deconstruct and analyze the the significance of An American Quote each week. The students must analyze SOAPSTone as well as identify the appeals (Ethos, Logos, Pathos) that the Writer uses. Students are required to research and use MLA format to cite their sources. Each week has a different quote.
I have used this for the last 3 semesters. It is challenging for the students, but they will get the hang of it after the first week. I give them all 6 upfront and assign due dates for each one.
