A few days ago, I started the following presentation:
Your first assignment was the 3 videos—one for each category of rhetorical fallacy we studied.
|Shoutout to Janelle for a great/terrible example |
of a slippery slope!
The second assignment is to write a 5-7¶ "campaign speech" (following the typical outline). You are running for SA president against a speech class classmate using as many rhetorical fallacies as possible. You are writing this in a paragraph style (as opposed to an outline) because, as you are using rhetorical fallacies, you will highlight and label what fallacies they are.
By next Monday, you should have the 5-7¶s uploaded to your blog. During class, you will present your speech to the rest of the class. I will give extra points to
- whomever I feel is the most convincing, and
- who correctly uses and identifies the most rhetorical fallacies
This should be the worst speech you do all semester, so get out all your terrible-ness!
