Keynote Analysis from 2012 Conventions

Homework:  Keep reading your IRP.  Begin to draft your Hot Air political speech due this Thursday.

Wordle of Christie 2012 RNC Keynote
Analysis experiment-
Let's see how well you can tackle a politician's rhetoric in real-time.   Now decide which speech you will watch/ listen (Castro or Christie) on the Chromebook.  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.

Transcripts of Speeches for Analysis are already available to you in Classroom.
