I have to be out today. I have a doctor's appointment I have to make, so Mr. Sellek and Mr. King will be filling in for me. Thus, make them rave about you. I have already told them how you are working independently on your "Bring Back a Dead" Campaign. I have posted relevant handouts for you on yesterday's blog post, so scroll down and find them if you need.
Remember that you are creating/crafting a campaign speech that is rich with rhetorical strategy, argumentation, and design. It should show that you know your candidate, your candidate's platform, and your candidate's promises.
You should also conduct a close-read on Abraham Lincoln's speech, "House Divided" and post your rhetorical analysis on your weebly. I will be looking for these beginning Sunday evening.
Next week, we will most likely have Thursday and Friday together. This means you MUST work on your campaign diligently today and throughout next week--even though I won't see you again until Thursday.
Remember that you are responsible for:
- A tight, well-crafted, rhetorically rich campaign speech
- A five-columned platform for your candidate (in a document)
- Debate points based on your platform positions
- A 30" to 1 minute political video ad
- A poster
Use your time WISELY in class today. Mr. Sellek (1st half) and Mr. King (2nd half) should be impressed with your diligence and your work ethic (and your ideas as they're important too).
