  • SESSION 11-SEPTEMBER 8 & 9
    • Declaration of Independence
    • Listen to the Declaration of Independence
    • Loaded Language
    • The language of the Declaration was carefully chosen. Find examples of words Jefferson uses that are charged with emotion.
    • Looking Closely at One Section
    • Although this is an incredibly important document, the language is outdated. Your group must take one section and figure out the gist. You will write this as a text message that Jefferson could have sent. Texts are expensive, so you have only 25 “words” to text.

    • Declaration of Rights
    • Charges Against the King
    • Criticism of British People
    • Conclusion
    • Discussion Questions
    • Work with your partner to answer the questions. Be prepared to discuss in the full group.
  • Rhetoric and Style
    • Identify each one of the truths.
    • Identify each one of the rights.
    • Identify the subject and predicate of the first sentence.
    • Identify the major assumption underlying the first sentence. What is the rhetorical principle at work?
    • What effect does the phrase “self-evident” have in sentence 2? How does that phrase help support the speaker’s position?
    • Why does the speaker begin with an appeal to “respect” as a value before stating the claim?
    • Consider the speaker’s appeal to ethos, logos, and pathos. Identify and explain two for each.
    • Read carefully the second and third “truths.” At that time, was it a historical fact that the governments were instituted for the purpose the speaker states? What is the rhetorical purpose of such a statement?
    • Explain how the speaker uses facts to appeal to logos.
    • Explain the effect of the rhetorical parallelism with which Jefferson concludes the Declaration.
    • How does Jefferson explain the reason for a formal declaration of independence? Why do you think it was necessary for Jefferson to state the “causes which impel them to the separation”?
    • Is the Declaration of Independence a radical document? Explain.
