We began to review for the final today, using Atticus Finch’s courtroom speech from the film version of To Kill a Mockingbird. [Students analyzed the rhetoric, prepped a Rhetorical Analysis essay, considered an argument prompt, and prepped an Argument essay], all of which were timed to simulate the first 10 minutes of the 40-minute suggested time for a timed essay. Homework: work on revisions to the two summative essays.
