Tues/Wed (9/8,9/9): Rhetorical Devices and Speaking Skills: For our first block of the week, we will be revisiting our favorite rhetorical devices: Ethos|Pathos|Logos. There will be lecture, notes, and clips to help students develop a deeper, college-level understanding of these devices.
Students will have time during Noble Silence and at the end of class (time permitting) to work on preparing resources/outlines/evidence for the short-response essay portion of the test on 9/10,9/11.

I appreciate that Los Angeles is getting into the apocalyptic vibe with this heat wave - but I wouldn't mind if it were just a bit cooler, either.
