On March 24, 2018, hundreds of thousands of students across the United States marched at the national March For Our Lives event to protest gun violence and advocate for tougher gun laws. At the march on Washington, 11-year old Naomi Wadler took the stage to inform the world about gun violence against African-American girls and women. This handout serves as a mini-lesson toward analyzing and discussing Naomi Wadler's speech.
Concepts covered in the questions:
--personal reflection/response on ideas and quotes from the speech
--examining word choice
--understanding new words in context
--a one paragraph response to a major point in the speech
Included in this handout is a teacher discussion guide. This is not a "key" in the sense that students should be expected to match word for word. The purpose is aide the teacher in discussing these difficult topics with the students.
Thank you for considering discussing such important issues with your students!
