Discussing last night’s debates. Please answer on a separate sheet of paper (or at the bottom of your notes from last night’s debates):
WARM-UP: What did you notice in terms of rhetorical appeals? How did the two major-party candidates show their credibility/ethos? How did they use facts or statistics to appeal to logos? What emotional (pathos) appeals were made? What feelings do you think they were most trying to inspire in their audiences?
Introduction to The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave
PPT introducing Characteristics of Slave Narratives as a genre
Read and discuss the Preface

HW: Begin working on this week's Commonplace Books assignment, focusing on a current article from a reputable news source about any of the Presidential candidates (this may be a news article or op-ed piece) or Presidential debates (due this weekend).
