EN12M: 15 March

The ability to organize your thoughts and convince an audience is one of the most transferrable skills that you will learn in school. Not all essays have to be written and the most popular are usually oral. Here’s the clip that we watched today: Trevor Noah: Donald Trump Is Coming For Your Guns

As you’re watching, consider the following:

  • What is the question?
  • What is Trevor’s thesis?
  • What are Trevor’s arguments and what evidence does he use to support them?
  • What is Trevor’s conclusion?
  • Overall, is this an effective way of communicating his argument?
