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

This speech in particular is a fantastic spring board into conversations about the status of indigenous people in the Americas, and how they are treated. Given the #NODAPL debate and events, this would be a very timely piece to use in the classroom.

The Jefferson inaugural speech activity contains questions on:
*Reading comprehension
*Authorial intent
*Tone
*Figurative language
*Critical thinking
*Sound effects
*Effect of author's choices
*Tone
*Repetition
*Style
*Vocabulary development
*Connection to current events: Native American Issues

BONUS: Contains a useful-for any-vocab-lesson worksheet, and a follow-up micro-research project.

This is part of a series of seven practice excerpts 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.
