Rhetoric Speeches

June 2, 2021

Senior Rhetoric speeches will take place on June 2. Rhetoric teaches classical argument structure and rhetorical theory, while requiring students to apply the concepts they are learning to speeches. Excerpts from Gorgias, Augustine, Cicero, and Aristotle are read throughout the year. The course culminates with a persuasive speech that requires the students to propose a thesis that argues from a Christian worldview on a contemporary issue that is presented to their peers.
