Activity Overview


When teaching speeches and letters, it’s helpful to refresh or introduce students to rhetorical devices that enhance rhetorical strategies. After reading “I Have A Dream”, ask your students to do a scavenger hunt using the Storyboard Creator. Give them the following five rhetorical devices and have them create a storyboard that depicts and explains the use of each device in the speech: repetition, analogy, parallelism, restatement, and antithesis.
