<p> Extract from Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech. Shows examples of persuasive devices. Useful as an aide-mémoire.
Students can create their own 'Wordle' presentations thinking of important words associated with the civil rights movement or persuasive techniques - great for Black History Month.

Hello - I am the original creator of this resource and originally uploaded it to TES in the United Kingdom. We used it as part of a broader speech-writing task. Some classes also compared it to speeches by Winston Churchill, Queen Elizabeth I of England, a Barack Obama. I hope you find it useful.
