Building off of Unit 1, Unit 2 continues to follow the new AP curriculum guidelines as it builds upon the rhetorical situation. Students will understand exigence, purpose, audience, and context at a deeper level. In addition, there is a focus on Aristotle's rhetorical appeals. By the end of the unit, students will formulate a thesis, claims, and evidence. This unit pushes students to explore the medium of a podcast. The activities that correspond to this PPT can be found in the Unit 2 Bundle, which includes an analysis of JFK's space race speech and MLK Jr.'s Letter From Birmingham Jail.
