I am an 8th grade US History teacher. I created a YouTube video of a Gettysburg Address Rap as an alternative to the actual Gettysburg Address speech. It is a short (2:07), stop-motion cartoon video that could work as an introduction to a lesson, a station in a rotation or as homework. It is available 24/7 on my YouTube channel (Keith Piirto) or you can access the video from my TPT. Just look for Gettysburg Address Rap. It is free. Below is the Gettysburg Address assignment I give to my students, which includes the speech and the rap text. The numbers along the margin of the text helps students set goals as they ‘chunk’ the memorization. I hope it is helpful to you and your students this year.
