New Tools for Analyzing Speeches

By on July 9, 2013

We are happy to announce two new additions to our Skill Library: Analyzing a Speech and Analyzing Rhetorical Devices. As you make text selections this summer for the upcoming school year, consider using our tools and practical handouts to help you teach analytical reading skills. 

Analyzing a Speech is type of graphic organizer that helps students read a speech rhetorically. 

Analyzing Rhetorical Devices, our second skill we have released this week, provides a series of practical questions students can answer to better analyze rhetorical devices used by speakers and writers.

Our Skill Library contains roughly 60 skills to help our students become independent reader, writers, and thinkers. Use our Skill Library to help you plan for next year and jump into our Skill-Based Lesson Planner and build some dynamic lessons.

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.
