Description

Overview:
Two important speeches to be given during the Cold War were McCarthy’s Fifty-seven Names speech and Truman’s 1947 address to Congress, commonly known as the Truman Doctrine. These documents provide the advanced student the opportunity to analyze persuasive structure in two primary source documents(Reading Informational Texts  5, 6 and 9) as well as provide the opportunity to practice the specific vocabulary that is required for analyzing rhetoric at the advanced and college level (Language 5 and 6). Initially, these documents serve as practice for analyzing rhetoric for advanced students. Beyond the initial analysis of these documents, they pair well with Miller’s popular drama, The Crucible, to support Miller’s interpretation of the zeitgeist of the 1950s. This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
