Animal Farm was published in 1945 and is still a popular text today! In this class, students will be introduced to and reminded of a number of rhetorical devices that can be used for effective persuasive writing. They will then apply these to an analysis of Old Major’s speech in Chapter 1 of Animal Farm. Finally, they will get the opportunity to begin developing an evaluative personal response when examining both effect and effectiveness of rhetorical techniques used.
This is a great class for students in Years 7 - 11 to work on combining learning theory as well as practical application which are important to excel in exams!
Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
This class is suitable for students in Years 7-11 or S1-S5.
