Product Description

Patrick Henry's famed "Speech at the Virginia Convention" is a classic piece of American oratory, and using the text in history or English language arts is a great way to expose students to foundational documents and seminal texts. This lesson includes opportunities for rhetorical analysis, writing, and test prep. Includes analytical and rhetorical writing prompts and an easy-to-use rubric, analysis questions, and SOAPSTone analysis. The 25 reading questions come in two forms: as a traditional worksheet and as a fully editable, ready-to-use, and self-scoring Google Form.
