Product Description
Includes essay prompt and directions for style analysis essay on Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous speech.

Also includes two sample paragraphs of King's effective use of metaphors in the speech as well as "Style Analysis Hit List," which is a guide to writing the essay. I use this with my AP Language and Composition students, and they find it very helpful.

This lesson is geared towards AP students, but it can be used with College Prep students as well, with some minor expectation adjustments.

For grading, you can adapt the AP rubric on a 9 point scale, or you can always create a rubric or your own.

This is a good practice topic, though, so I usually grade based on depth of ideas and completion, and an in-class student-centered evaluation system works well. I guide them and monitor them, answering questions as needed. Students need to think critically about what their classmates are saying, and they check for organization, staying true to task, and answering the prompt.

Another quick grading technique is to read them holistically and judge high, middle, low, and the grades will correspond accordingly. I give the low and middle scorers a chance to meet with me and revise for an improved grade. Of course, those scoring in the high range love a few complimentary remarks on their papers--or a note about something they can improve for the future.
