Returning to MLK’s speech today, we discussed the tone and tonal shifts students found while watching it last class. Then I introduced style, discussing different elements of rhetorical style while students augmented my handout with their own notes. We returned to the text of the speech so students could begin identifying some of these style elements. At the end of class I gave some reading time. Homework: part 3 of your independent novel is due on Monday.
