Product Description
To assist students in analyzing the diction in Malcolm X's "The Ballot or The Bullet" and Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream", this organizer selects important words from "The Ballot or The Bullet" to demonstrate the selection of important language. It then provides space for students to indicate whether these words were negative or positive descriptors within the speech. The organizer also provides a space for students to attribute specific tone vocabulary based on the word or phrase. Once this organizer is completed (individually or in pairs), an area is provided for students in small groups or whole class to discuss the diction/tone and jot notes based on the analysis of the author's word choice. The organizer for Martin Luther King's speech is without words populated to scaffold the experience and encourage students to identify important words before analyzing them.
