Gandhi: Reading and analysis of rhetoric for motivation

In this lesson, we will learn about Mahatma Gandhi, a peaceful protestor who believed all living things should be equal. We will think about how his reputation as a peacekeeper is emphasised within his speech and how this may have influenced his audience. We will explore how Gandhi used the leading principles of Ahimsa to deliver his incredible Quit India speech, and how his use of language changed Indian history.
