Design Assignment Number 2

Read a political speech (probably chosen for them). Or pick one of three that are pre prepared. Could go through all 3 at some point.

Could take 3 swipes at each:
1. Values
2. Rhetoric
3. Reason

Critical Thinking Exercise:
1. Why is this persuasion?
2. What is more persuasive?
3. What is least persuasive?

How would you improve it?

Read the other side of the argument (if possible). If its congressional testimony there should be another side. Could find this with Great Speeches of the Day (not sure how available that publication is)
