Daily Lessons, and Homework
Current in the Classroom:
Students learn to argue. They study rhetoric and debate, as well as many forms of advertising. They look at how the creators of advertisements target an audience, and craft an argument to appeal to that audience, then learn to refute, rebut, and create sturdy arguments and rhetoric of their own.
Students also study a variety of speeches focused on human rights from speakers such as Dr. King, Elie Wiesel, Toni Morrison, Malcolm X, John Lewis, President Lyndon Johnson, President Barack Obama, and many others.
