|Wordle of Christie 2012 RNC Keynote|
Let's see how well you can tackle a politician's rhetoric in real-time. You and your partner already have your group letter (A-....) Now decide which speech you will watch/ listen (Castro or Christie). As you listen to the speech, you will place comments on the speech that unpack the various rhetorical strategies at play. This means both of you have the same document open and comment on it. You can stop the audio/video at any point if you need to catch your thoughts.
For example: "Speaker X attacks the economic policy of Candidate Y because ...." or "A weakness of Candidate X is....this is why it is targeted."
Focus all of your commentary energy on what emotions/ideas that the speaker is attempting to evoke or plant in the minds of the audience.
Aim for a minimum of 20 comments in your doc.
