Tuesday, March 10, 2020: “Speech to the Virginia Convention”

It’s Tuesday, so we’re starting with Lit Term Tuesday! Please be sure to get the notes from a friend if you were out today.


“Give me liberty or give me death!”

You may have heard this phrase before, which is the most famous line from Patrick Henry’s speech, “Speech to the Virginia Convention.” We will complete a first reading today, with a focus on identifying claim statements and evidence. Please also be on the lookout and annotating for rhetorical strategies and appeals used that we have covered in class (EPL, restatement, repetition, rhetorical question, etc.).
