Reflection: Pacing Responses to Industrialism: Close Reading of The Communist Manifesto (Day 3 of 3) - Section 3: Wrap Up and Next Steps


This has taken so much longer than I wanted it to. I know that my first day was sort of a wasted day, but I was really hoping that we could move on faster than we are from this text. Sigh.

The good news is, I think the students actually have a decent grasp of what Marx is arguing. This will help with our analysis of his style and rhetorical strategies. The main goal for this lesson was to look at how logical argument is structured and supported. Now that the students have some understanding of what Marx is saying, we can begin to discuss how he does it and why this piece has been so influential on 20th century world affairs.
