To develop skills in critical thinking and pedagogy applicable to teaching grammar, writing, and civics to adult and young adult ESL students, workshop participants will apply analytical tools derived from critical linguistics to a political speech. In their analysis, they will code the text, make statements based on evidence, and evaluate the rhetorical purpose of the text. Additional objectives include the structure of an argument and Constitutional law applied to political discourse.
