PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a nice activity where students analyze the Gettysburg Address and make "tweets" from a partisan / abolitionist / military viewpoint either supporting or criticizing Lincoln. The objective is to analyze the Gettysburg Address as well as the context, i.e. the difficult situation Lincoln is in politically, as well as his changing point-of-view on slavery.

The students start with an anticipation guide where they try to unpack what the speech means. Then, there is a very simple explanation of what we believe it means. After analyzing the speech, the students make their own tweets, including hashtags, that reflect a point-of-view.
You can then paste them to a poster copy of the speech or on your whiteboard. I included some pictures of kids doing it.



They are made for flipped classrooms but work well in any class. Please buy a license if you decide to use them.
