PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a great one-week argument project for your students who have already worked on argument and are familiar with rhetorical devices and appeals. It is also a wonderfully hands-on (for them) and hands-off (for you!) project that fits the CCSS requirements for reading seminal documents. Hooray!

So, are you ready to just observe and facilitate for a week? And have hardly any grading? This is something that I developed with those two ideals in mind, but I also wanted to supplement the text book unit with some great political speeches.

Here’s how it works:
+You make copies of a variety of speeches (ex: if you have 35 students in a class, choose seven speeches and make five copies of each). You can use the same speeches for each class.

+You can select speeches around a theme, for example: Freedoms or Women’s Rights, etc. Or, you can choose a variety of inaugural addresses, and include some modern presidents.

+Make copies (one for each student) of the handout that fits your schedule: Modified Block (M-T-Block-F), Alternating Block (M-W-F), Generic four day schedule (Days 1-4) or Single Periods (M-T-W-Th-F). There should be one to suit your needs.

+Copy the SOAPStoneS handout on the back of the project handout.

+Each student receives a speech, and project handout/SOAPStoneS sheet.
You can decide if you want them working as a group on the first day, or not. I usually have them do the first read and annotations by themselves, and then get together with their group. Use the project handout for additional instructions.

+Use the rubric for grading the presentation at the end of the week. I have provided you with three: a four-point (1-2-3-4), a letter grade (A B C D), and an out-of-10 (___/10) rubric. This is for a group score and individual scores.

+You facilitate and provide supplies, answer questions, etc. all week. No lectures, no lessons, just a nice review of the elements of argument, and some fresh material for your students. A nice assessment piece to end the unit, or to use before writing an argument essay.

Enjoy!

Thank you,
