Animal Farm is a very common text across English curricula.
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 combining learning theory as well as practical application of the lessons students have just learned to ensure they can excel in assessments.
