Each station uses the speech for analysis activities. The activities require deeper level thinking using common core standards. The stations are set up so that the directions for each are each placed on individual pages that could be placed in folders. Each student then has their own answer sheet to record information from stations. I've aligned the stations to 8th grade reading common core standards, but the activities would work in higher grades or history classes. The stations are a word document, so you can edit them as needed to apply them to your class, and you could use just a portion of them. Each station took about 10 minutes to complete.
