Product Description
This lesson comes with everything you need to teach rhetoric and persuasive writing through Martin Luther King's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail". In this lesson, students are introduced to the topics of Ethos, Logos, Pathos, and Kairos. Students are then assigned an appeal to examine as they read "Letter...". Students meet in mixed groups to lead discussion on their appeal, which results in a full rhetorical analysis. Students use what they learn from examining "Letter..." to create their own persuasive letter.

Included in this bundle is:
A general overview with tips on how to teach the lesson

A PowerPoint to use as you guide students through each step of the lesson, complete with notes for the teacher

Guided notes for the students to use and they work through the lesson

Three graphic organizers: one for analyzing the assigned topic, one for the full analysis students will do as a group, and one to help students create their own persuasive letter

A rubric for the persuasive letter

A list of possible topics for the persuasive letter

The timeframe for this lesson is flexible, taking 1-4 class periods
