PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PowerPoint teaching students how to analyze the thesis and main points of a complex speech, discern the structure of a complex speech, and identify the rhetorical devices used in a complex speech. (All are TN standards for English III, but the PPT can be used for any high school grade or even advanced middle school students.)
Examples are taken from historical speeches.
Teaching notes are in the notes section of the PPT.

Student notes and activity page is provided, along with an answer key. At the end of the lesson, students will dissect the Gettysburg Address by A. Lincoln. I found this activity worked best when students were in groups of two or three and were taught how to use a highlighter when combing though the speech (highlight main points and underline rhetorical devices, or use two different colors).
