Digital Interactive Notebook for use with Google Slides or MS OneDrive. Students interact with the notebook online through their own Google Drive accounts. Notebooks ask students to conduct brief research on Martin Luther King, Jr. and the historical context of his “I Have a Dream” speech. Students identify the rhetorical situation by using SOAPSTone (Speaker, Occasion, Audience, Purpose, Subject, and Tone). Students are then asked to find and analyze three examples of rhetorical devices used in the speech. The activity is able to be completed in 3-6 class periods, depending on whether or not your school follows traditional or block scheduling.
A student glossary of rhetorical devices and a teacher’s guide with an example rubric and lesson extensions are included.
