PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Malcolm Gladwell, in Outliers, writes of the failings of polite speech. This method of communication politely, especially in a hierarchical system, leads to fatal plane crashes. This topic was also assessed in the 2015 AP Language exam, as students were asked to write an argument concerning polite speech.

Students will view supporting video clips on the argument. Students will view a TED Talk on the benefits of daring to disagree. Students will study Chapter 7 from Outliers. There is an opportunity to write a rhetorical précis, as well as supporting material for teaching this strategy to your students. Included is a lesson on crafting a thesis sentence and in assessing the full range of student samples from the 2015 AP Language exam.

These lessons fit any Honors Literature class, Pre-AP, American Literature, World Literature or AP English Language or Literature class to prepare students for AP English Language exams, Common Core extended response assessments, American Literature Course exams, the SAT and ACT essay and critical thinking activities.

There are sources for teaching the Socratic Seminar, as it acts as explication for the argument. The packet includes complete lessons, Common Core standards, essential and key questions.
