Product Description
In this lesson, students complete close readings of Lyndon B. Johnson's speech, "We Shall Overcome," and Abraham Lincoln's, "Second Inaugural Address." Then they synthesize their understanding of the readings and write a short analytical essay requiring them to analyze the arguments in each speech.

They complete handouts with before, during, and post-reading strategies, which provide scaffolding for the writing task. Afterwards they respond to a writing task that imitates the style of a standardized assessment. This lesson provides practice with literary analysis writing. Incorporating all strands of the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) Anchor Standards, skills stressed include using annotation, rhetorical analysis, and essay writing.

The 28 page resource includes the following:

-explicit lesson plan with identified Common Core ELA Anchor Standards,
-anticipation guide
-contextual reading guides
-think aloud with sample annotation passage
-speech texts
-analysis graphic organizers
-Venn diagram
-essay writing prompt
-short analytical essay rubric
-key (detailed responses for all activities and a sample essay are provided).
