In honor of Presidents' Day, get this six-excerpt bundle for half off until Tuesday morning! Have your students look back and read excerpts of some of our former-presidents' most important speeches.
There are six excerpts in this set, and each one has anywhere from an hour to three hours of work to go along with it: multiple choice, performance tasks, constructed response, short answer, etc. All with an eye to critical thinking, non-fiction analysis, making connections, and forming and defending opinions.
Excerpts are from Adams, Bush, Buchanan, Kennedy, Garfield, and T. Roosevelt.
This is great for prep for watching the inauguration, for test-prep practice, or to enhance any unit that deals with the presidency. Issues addressed, aside from analysis include America's mistreatment of indigenous peoples, the lives of emancipated slaves, and religion's role in politics.
Let me know if you have questions!
