Today we talked about Aristotle’s system of rhetoric. Here’s a short video that explains some of it:

I gave you an excerpt from a chapter of a book on the Japanese invasion of China in World War II to read as background for the Joy Luck Club and practice in rhetorical analysis: The Rape of Nanking Reading. That reading guide will be due Thursday (not tomorrow).

We also spent some time setting up Khan Academy accounts. For homework tonight, I would like for you to try doing the nouns activities. If you run into technical issues or can’t get to all of it, that’s okay – let me know tomorrow. This is a new system for us, and we’re working through some of the set-up and glitches.
