Product Description
In a resource where students practice challenging, refuting or qualifying an argument, students learn about money through unlimited political contributions gaining political power in American institutions. Students will read, listen to and view supporting clips while learning the necessary elements to analyze the argument about money and power. Students will show mastery of the standards at the end of the lesson through a rhetorical précis, a Socratic seminar, and a written timed essay scored on an AP style rubric.

A recent New Yorker Magazine essay, “The Reclusive Hedge-Fund Tycoon Behind the Trump Presidency,” by Jane Mayer is the central text in these lessons. A TED TALK on “We the People, and the Republic We Must Reclaim, by Lawrence Lessig is utilized, as is an opportunity to write a rhetorical précis as well as supporting material for teaching this strategy to your students. An NPR story on Citizens United, as well as a short video explaining Citizens United is part of these lessons.

These lessons fit any Honors Literature class, Pre-AP, American Literature, 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.
