Use Oprah Winfrey’s headline-grabbing speech from the 2018 Golden Globes to show your students the power of a well-constructed presentation. In this one class period activity, students will discuss the #metoo movement, view Oprah Winfrey’s 10-minute speech, and deconstruct/discuss her use of rhetorical devices. Questions focus on audience, metaphor, parallelism, pathos, and symbolism. These materials can serve as a stand-alone lesson or as a solid supplement to a study of Jim Crow laws or SAT-style essay prep.
