PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

One of the most inspiring presidential speeches given in the history of America was presented to Congress in 1789 by George Washington. Washington’s First Inaugural Address will reveal Washington’s humanity and humility as well as his utopian vision for America. Read this primary source with your students and discuss a better future for America.

This activity is versatile and can be taught in a variety of ways. Choose what works best for your students. Focus on the primary source or focus on the vocabulary. Practice writing skills or critical thinking. It is all included!

Included in this activity:
• Primary Source
• Analysis Questions & Teacher Key
• Blank Vocabulary Sheet
• Suggested Vocabulary Sheet & Teacher Key
• Primary Source with Writing Response (In Landscape) & Teacher Key
• Blank Writing Response (in Portrait)

When teaching this lesson, I would recommend assigning the students to research the vocabulary as homework the night before the lesson. Then in class they can work individually or in small groups analyzing the primary source, writing their response, and answering the analysis questions. At the end of class, I always review the activity and discuss the lessons that they learned as a class.
