In this lesson, students read and analyze paragraphs 8 and 9 of the “Atlanta Compromise Speech,” in which Washington speaks about the difficult path of Southern progress. Students continue to analyze how Washington’s use of rhetoric contributes to the power and persuasiveness of his speech. Students also discuss the importance of using precise language, domain-specific vocabulary, and techniques such as metaphor, simile, or analogy when writing about complex ideas.
