PDF of Letter from Birmingham Jail Excerpt

To the right, you will find two documents. Both are excerpts from the same text discussed in the annotation video, "Letter from Birmingham Jail" by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr . The first document is for you to print and annotate yourself, noting areas where Dr. King uses ethos, logos and pathos.

The second text has ethos, pathos, and logos highlighted, so that you can compare your own annotations and monitor your understanding of the concepts.
