Product Description
The Declaration of Independence is a beautiful piece of rhetoric.

Gleaning information from an article by Stephen E Lucas, titled
"Justifying America: the Declaration of Independence as a Rhetorical Document," I've created this presentation which breaks the document into sections and addresses the effective use of
---prose style,
---word order,
---religious connotation,
---and other rhetorical devices.

There are 55 slides with over 50 relevant graphics.

Included are

---sections of the document,
---discussion, and quotes from Thomas Jefferson.

Created with PowerPoint 2007

To accompany the PowerPoint presentation, download my product titled, Declaration of Independence Presentation and Activity. It's a freebie!

This packet contains the information that is included in the PowerPoint, notes for discussion, a template for student notes and a group activity.

Thank you for your consideration.
