Developing Central Ideas


In this lesson, students continue their analysis of Benazir Bhutto’s speech, “Ideas Live On,” paying particular attention to how Bhutto develops central ideas in paragraphs 24–28, in which Bhutto calls on her audience to choose democracy in the upcoming elections. Students work in pairs to read paragraphs 24–28, analyzing how the conclusion develops central ideas that were introduced earlier in the speech.
