This interactive PowerPoint introduces students to elements of rhetorical analysis (rhetorical situation, the relationship between speaker/writer and audience, context, author's purpose, and the appeals). Students analyze the "clean" Al Pacino speech from Any Given Sunday for the rhetorical situation and the appeals. I use this with non-AP students, but it's also a great lesson fo AP Language and Composition students to reinforce rhetorical analysis skills.
