PREAP Julius Caesar Unit
With this play, we will read along while we watch the movie Julius Caesar (Marlon Brando version). With this short unit, we be exposed to this iconic play and specifically focus on Aristotle's elements of tragedy and rhetorical analysis of the persuasive speeches of Brutus and Marc Antony. Using the MYP Global Context of identities and relationships, we will examine the inquiry questions of when should we follow the guidance of others and when should we follow our conscience and what makes a person persuasive? Beginning our study of argument theory and rhetorical analysis, we will get introduced to basic argument terminology and continue to hone in on our close reading skills by identifying devices used in rhetoric.
