Students read Nixon's resignation speech, answer 14 questions, and complete 2 creative tasks (both tasks involve multiple points of view). The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--What was Nixon persevering through?
--What did Nixon fear were he not able to see his term through?
--Citing evidence from the text, how does he defend his decision to resign?
--How does Nixon ask the American public to support Ford, and why?
--Nixon says in the last paragraph, "he has done his very best..." Inferring from the text and what you learned in class, do you agree with that statement, why or why not?
