This accompanies a fresh, clean copy of Cesar Chavez's, "Commonwealth Club Address"; however, this portion is only for paragraphs 8-15 of 29. This activity provides students with the opportunity to continue honing their annotation skills and requires them to answer questions about the text and provide text based evidence for their findings.
The ideals Chavez espouses pair very well with all different types of literature. From poetry to novels to documentaries about other activists, his unflagging support of an oppressed people shines through. I always thoroughly enjoy teaching this, and the students typically enjoy it to. Its message still resonates today and brings up so many current and relevant issues.
