Product Description
This formative mini lesson focuses on exploring and identifying elements of rhetorical language in a primary source, followed by a summative Socratic Seminar (also for sale) which revolves around the unit question, "Is rebellion ever justified?" The handout provides brief background context on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s powerful “A Letter from Birmingham Jail”, followed by students annotating elements of rhetoric either individually or in groups. As stated in the directions, the students can also respond online (in a Google Classroom or other type of website format.) The first of the two pages provides background context and instructions to annotate the text, however, the actual letter must be found online or via another resource, due to copyright law. The second of the two pages asks students specific questions, while also focusing on proper parenthetical text citation. This lesson can also be compared with the Malcolm X interview with TV host Len Crane, when Dr. King’s passive approach to change is criticized. The background information for the interview is provided on the third page (the interview can be found online, but is not for sale, due to copyright law.)
