Assignment: Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom 
                      Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates 

Tuesdays with Morrie pdf 

Between the World and Me pdf 


1. Read both books. 

2. Take brief notes on each book to prepare for our first writing assignment which will be a rhetorical analysis comparing and contrasting the two. Remember, rhetorical analysis requires you to analyze strategies an author uses to communicate a message in his/her work. Therefore, strategies to look out for are flashback, allusion, characterization, contrast, repetition, symbolism, selection of detail, tone, point of view, and irony. 

Due Date: First day of school 

I look forward to working with you in the 2022-2023 school year. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
