Do Now!
Journal #3: Look at and read the cartoon from comicnews.com. What is the context of this text? What is the purpose of the text? Now consider the rhetorical triangle. What is the subject of the cartoon? What do we know about the “speaker”? Does the speaker possess any bias? What tone is the speaker using? Describe the intended audience. What does the speaker assume about the audience? What other details in this cartoon contribute to its message?

Do Now
Journal #4: Write a developed paragraph comparing/contrasting “The Gettysburg Address” and Patrick Henry’s “Speech to the Virginia Convention.” Focus your comparison on one element of the rhetoric (ie. tone, appeals to pathos, appeals to logos, imagery and other word choices…). Please use the “Analytical Paragraph” structure learned last year to organize your paragraph.

Do Now, please.
Each of you will receive a card with a term from this unit. If, beneath the term, you see "ex.", create an example for the term. If you see "def.", please write a definition for the term. If you see "ex. and/or def.", you get to choose whether you create an example or write a definition or do both. DO NOT SHARE YOUR TERM WITH ANYONE ELSE. ALSO, YOU MAY USE YOUR NOTES.
Vocab. Game
Pair up with another student and share your examples/definitions. See if you can guess each other's term. Then, you will walk around and find another partner. Repeat the process.
Logical fallacies and booby traps, continued.
Analysis Essays
Digging deep--create a thoughtful, thoroughly developed discussion

Compile and incorporate a variety of evidence
DO NOT turn your analysis into an opinion/argumentative essay
