Based on your reading, annotation, and discussion of "Letter from Birmingham Jail,"
write 2 TE/EA structure paragraphs:
The first paragraph should address the NATURE of MLK’s argument: what is he arguing and what is his key evidence?
The second paragraph should address how he presented his argument – how did he use structure, tone, diction, etc. to persuade his audience?
Due tomorrow Tuesday 10/3
•T: topic sentence – what the point of this paragraph will be!
•E: evidence – quote from the text (don’t forget to contextualize)
•E: explanation – explain HOW this quote supports the main point you brought up in the T-sentence
--> Do 2 rounds of E/E per paragraph!
•A: analysis – tie all the pieces together… why does all this matter? What’s the take-away here?
