A Wise Man Also Said: Wrapping Up Aphorisms and Persuasive Pre-Writing

Unit 3: Literacy: Rhetorical Devices and Revolutionary Thinking of the Enligtenment
Lesson 5 of 12

Objective: SWBAT identify topic, purpose, and audience as they complete a pre-writing brainstorm for an argumentative research paper.

Big Idea: Despite what the internet and cable news may have you believe, shouting louder is not the best way to convince others you're right. A personal connection to your argument and valid support--that can convince others.
