  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

A FREE resource, because this was made up very quickly to catch students hot on the heels of Greta's speech to the UN Climate Action Summit yesterday 23rd September and because it is our responsibility to play a part in spreading her word and calling students to action.

In this resource you will find:

  • The transcript of the speech (typed it out myself)
  • The link to the speech
  • A comprehensive close reading activity that looks at language, ideas, tone, purpose and structure. Note: this close reading is differentiated into 3 levels of questioning through colour-coding (explained in the resource).
  • A list of activity ideas to follow up Greta's speech

This resource is in Google Doc format in the hope that, in the interests of climate change, it will be used electronically rather than being printed.

Enjoy! :)
