This lesson includes notes on the different types of rhetorical devices as well as examples from famous American speeches. A project is also included for assessment purposes, and it is easily differentiated/tiered for learners with diverse needs. The parts of the project call for the students to execute tasks related to the CCSS. This lesson pairs up the High School English Rhetorical Devices Powerpoint, also available in my store.
*Note: This lesson is a great complement to US History courses, and I would recommend choosing speeches that are applicable to the time period the US History teacher is teaching.
