Building A Convincing Argument

An Important and Well-Written Idea

Opening

Look at “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” again.

  • Go back through your annotations and the letter to find a sentence or idea that you found to be important and well written.
  • Share your passage with a partner. Take turns reading it aloud to each other. It’s important to hear well-written passages read aloud.
  • When it’s your turn, read aloud from the paragraph where your chosen passage appears so that all your classmates can hear the context it was written in.
