Technology on Trial (ELA)



In this lesson, students will take the knowledge and understanding of Aristotle's appeals and put it into practice. They will develop basic arguments for and against clean technology and then research the pertinent information for these arguments. They will then use the appeals to rhetorically present their arguments for their purpose. They will prove their understanding of these techniques in a courtroom setting in which clean technology will be put on trial.
