Product Description
Help students to deepen their understanding of rhetorical devices and the text structure of powerful arguments with the week and a half unit, Understanding Arguments with Cesar Chavez Speeches.

In this unit, students listen to and annotate a Cesar Chavez speech, answering text-based questions that help to deepen their understanding of rhetorical devices, the central claim, and the purpose of each section of Chavez's speech. Students then focus on rhetorical devices, finding examples, analyzing, and making connections. Next, students do a group analysis of the text structure of Chavez's speech, specifically looking at the main claim of each section of the speech and analyzing how that section supports the central idea of the speech as a whole (a popular skill measured on standardized tests!). Finally, this study ends with a summative assessment in which students read a second Chavez speech independently analyzing the rhetorical devices and text structure.

Included in this unit:
- Cesar Chavez webquest
- Understanding Arguments 28 page student packet
- Text Structure worksheet
- Text Structure interactive bulletin board
- Argument Assessment
- Answer keys
- Rubrics
- Digital Links so any student worksheets can be shared electronically
