Product Description
Testing season is almost always upon us, which means we almost always need close reading practice.

This is great for two reasons: One, it is challenging enough for high school students without being too difficult, and it ties in PERFECTLY with the debate over race relations in our county.

The Garfield inaugural speech activity contains questions on:
*Reading comprehension
*Inference
*Figurative language
*Vocabulary development
*Connection to current events: Race relations, status of black people in America

This is part of a series of seven practice excerpts from Presidential Inaugural speeches that have everything you'll need to encourage best practices in annotating, active reading, using context clues, and evaluating a wide range of literary tools.

Each excerpt is formatted for easy annotation and is followed by a combination of multiple choice, performance tasks, short answer, constructed response, and essay options. Several have vocabulary activities, and each is print-ready.

Use these as a companion activity to the inauguration, or as test-prep practice, sub-day work, or connections to long term assignments.
