World Lit: Rhetorical Devices Scavenger Hunt

Standard: ELAGSE9-10RL1 Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.

Learning Target: I can understand rhetorical devices and find examples of them in “Caesar’s Funeral Speech” from Julius Caesar.

Opening Session: Caesar THUGNOTES!

Work Session: We’re going to start today by checking out this PowerPoint on rhetorical devices:

Rhetorical Devices

After that, I want you guys to flip to Antony’s “Friends, Romans, Countrymen” Speech in your play, and grab a sheet of paper and a partner. Go on a rhetorical device “Scavenger hunt” in the play and find as many examples as you can of the rhetorical devices we talked about today used in the speech!

At the end of class, we will compare our rhetorical devices, and I actually have another PowerPoint to show you some examples from the speech, in case you were struggling a bit 🙂
