Working with MLA speech to help students see the power of words as well as figurative language. It's also a wonderful way to combine Social Studies and English. I like to make this a group activity allowing for small group and large group discussions. You'll need to be careful about your time based on how your students are with analyzing it may require more time. This lesson takes us 3 days for them to fully grasp the power and importance of the speech, in turn be able to analyze and annotate well.
