Reading Comprehension: Rhetorical Devices in a Persuasive Argument

The emotional power of words is the focus of a mini-lesson that uses Robert F. Kennedy's, "A Eulogy to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr." as a text. Class members point out words that appeal to the reader's emotions and how contrasting words are paired. Consider extending the lesson by asking learners to craft their own persuasive text that uses this kind of appeal.

I LOVE this website! It has been a huge help to me throughout my college education in becoming a teacher. I am now student teaching and I love being able to find and print out lesson plans I can use or tweak to accommodate my coursework requirements. I intend to keep using Lesson Planet throughout my career as a teacher.
