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.

This 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)

In this lesson students will complete handouts with before, during, and post-reading strategies, which provide scaffolding for diverse learners. Afterwards, they will respond to a writing task that imitates the style of a standardized assessment. Incorporating all strands of the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) Anchor Standards, this lesson encourages students to practice skills in annotation, rhetorical and literary analysis, and essay writing.
