This resource from the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives shows students how to rename fractions to have a common denominator and then add them. It is appealing because it visually engages the students by showing them what happens to a unit (a rectangle is used here) as the denominator increases or decreases. As the denominator increases or decreases, the partitions are shown accordingly, and the effect on the numerator is shown as well. This is a convenient, visual way to show students how to manipulate fractions for adding.

After gaining skill through analyzing a historic and contemporary speech as a class, students will select a famous speech from a list compiled from several resources and write an essay that identifies and explains the rhetorical strategies that the author deliberately chose while crafting the text to make an effective argument. Their analysis will consider questions such as: What makes the speech an argument?, How did the author's rhetoric evoke a response from the audience?, and Why are the words still venerated today?

In this lesson, students will compare and contrast the "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!" speech by Patrick Henry with two speeches by Chief Tecumseh of the Shawnee. This lesson extends the study of Patrick Henry's speech to demonstrate the ways Native Americans also resisted oppression through rhetoric. By examining these three speeches, students can develop a new respect for the Native Americans' politically effective and poetic use of language. Students are challenged to recognize the rhetorical devices used by both men and their own emotional responses to the two speeches, in addition to translating a portion of Henry's speech to emulate the style of Tecumseh.

This lesson asks students to explore the motivation behind characters' actions in To Kill a Mockingbird. Students first engage in a freewrite activity. They then do research and creative thinking to design a poster and plan a presentation representing a psychological profile for a selected character, while determining what specific factors (such as family, career, environment, and so forth) have the greatest influence on the characters' decision making throughout the novel. The groups present their findings to the class by assuming the persona of their character and explaining the psychological factors influencing their behavior in the novel.
