READ THIS BEFORE MOVING ON!


JFK Inaugural Address Analysis Day 2 - you are working independently to identify an additional example of each device in Kennedy's Speech and analyze how the use of the device supports the overall purpose.


I have provided a short video explaining each device, an example from Kennedy's speech (which is included in the gray boxes on your chart), and an example of the level of analysis that I expect of you. I suggest that you watch a video, then find an example of that device/analyzing the device before moving to the next video. You may find that you don't need to watch every video as you may be comfortable with one of more of the devices. However, I encourage you to utilize the resources I have provided you.
