First students must read (or watch) Nixon's Silent Majority Speech to the nation and John Kerry's address to Congress representing the VVAW (both speeches have audio and video available). This constructed response prompt should be used to assess students understanding of the main ideas presented while contrasting the two men's arguments.

The Prompt: Analyze the conflicting information within Nixon’s “Silent Majority” speech and John Kerry’s address to congress on the subject of the Vietnam War. Where do these men disagree in both fact and opinion on the Vietnam War?

A graphic organizer is provided to assist students with finding evidence to attach to the main ideas within each speech, as well as the counterclaims, and rebuttals. Constructed response tips, rules, and a writing format has also been provided which matches the rubric included.

Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of discipline-specific tasks, purposes, and audiences.
Apply grade 8 Reading standards to literary nonfiction (e.g., “Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, assessing whether the reasoning is sound and the evidence is relevant and sufficient; recognize when irrelevant evidence is introduced”).
Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, using search terms effectively; assess the credibility and accuracy of each source; and quote or paraphrase the data and conclusions of others while avoiding plagiarism and following a standard format for citation.
Introduce claim(s), acknowledge and distinguish the claim(s) from alternate or opposing claims, and organize the reasons and evidence logically.
