They annotated the quote and explored the effects of the language. Then students read each section of a newspaper and completed a table with all of the sections. I cut out the question: Is it true, you are what you read? from the newspapers and added photographs of the observed teaching.

Source: Copyright © 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. All rights reserved. The Atlantic Monthly; August 1963; The Negro Is Your Brother; Volume 212, No. 2; pages 78 - 88. I’ve cited this source in my learning experience, which I designed for Year 11 students beginning their studies in language and literature. I really wanted to explore, readers, writers and texts. The lesson begins with a DO NOW, which could be adapted. I’ve included question that reflect the knoweldge areas I am currently teaching. There is an overview to the context in which King wrote his letter. The letter is annotated which helps to model the persuasive language techniques. The task is inlcuded in the resource (2) which is a differentiated written commentary.
