Let's face it, sometimes our rhetoric units aren't the most engaging ones of the year. Students often get bored quickly with historical speeches and other dry informative texts. While it is important to teach these valuable documents, students will definitely appreciate some relevant and exciting teaching materials too. This set of 7 different movie speeches contains the perfect resources you need to get your students actively engaged with persuasive language techniques. By interacting with iconic films, old and new, students will be able to successfully annotate and analyze rhetoric in a way that is academic, real world applicable, and fun all at the same time.

Materials included:
