Obama and Speeches
We are continuing our analysis of political speeches. For our next class, take a look at two things.
1) Choose an historic speech from this list:
American Rhetoric Top 100 Speeches
You will use this speech as the subject of Paper #1.
2) Watch the Obama speech here on Thursday night. (You will have to download some software to view this speech. The speech will also show up on YouTube and other major news outlets, so try there if you cannot download the software.)
Post a reply, commenting on a moment that resonated with you, that seemed to have high rhetorical impact. Please also include the time marker of when that statement in the speech was made.
