Product Description
In 1999, Nobel Peace Prize recipient, author of Night and Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, spoke at a White House summit. This six-minute speech is considered by the website American Rhetoric one of 100 most significant speeches in the 20th century.

This speech and the accompanying detailed, differentiated lesson plan provides an opportunity to analyze informational text, research and discuss vexing contemporary issues and act upon them by way of writing a persuasive letter to offer solutions to the issue.

The lesson includes six 45 minute segments (double them for block schedules) of formative and summative assessments including a variation of the popular show, The Voice, to judge 30 second arguments; listening and reading the speech; analyzing the speech by way of a Toulmin modeled Claim-Data-Warrant graphic organizer; a paired/small group/whole group activity; viewing of a TED Talk related to the activity; an opportunity to research even using personal devices (BYOD); a Socratic Seminar/Fishbowl; numerous hyperlinks to online resources and an opportunity to show mastery of skills with a persuasive letter. By the end of the week, your students will be active and engaged global citizens!
