In honor of America’s 244th birthday, I am offering you an opportunity to read the Declaration of Independence and complete a rhetorical analysis. This assignment will ask you to uncover how Thomas Jefferson (and the Continental Congress) used the rhetorical appeals of ethos, pathos, and logos to justify America’s decision to break away from England and establish a new, sovereign nation.*** Historical Note – Remember, this document was a formal announcement that was designed to justify America’s new status as a sovereign nation. Its audiences included the King, Parliament, and people of England; the inhabitants of the 13 British colonies; the other nations of the world.
