About The Training

The knowledge, skills, tools, and practices you can plan to walk out with.
One hour of action packed English teacher glory.

Through the course of this "virtual workshop," you'll learn everything necessary to teach rhetorical analysis and argument in your classroom. If you've never taught argument before, rest easy knowing that we'll start with the basics and walk you from the baby-pool to the deep end. If you've been through the paces and have been teaching argumentation for years, you'll be happy to walk out with a few new tips, tricks, and compelling lesson ideas. The training itself is divided into four course modules: (1) "Persuasive vs. Argumentative," (2) "Conducting Rhetorical Analysis," (3) Implementing Analysis In Class," and (4) "Argumentative Writing." You'll enjoy the freedom that comes with online learning: move at your pace, whether you nail it in one sitting or distribute your learning across multiple days. Then, revisit the course any time! In just one hour, you'll be far more comfortable with (and better equipped to teach) rhetorical analysis and argument writing. So what are you waiting for? Get started NOW!
