This is a fun lesson that is highly rigorous and will keep your students engaged. It is designed as a cooperatively learning exercise where students will practice writing and reading skills and speaking and listening skills all of which align with ELA and Social Studies Common Core standards.Also, this lesson is differentiated for EL Students and Students with Learning Disabilities.
This activity will go great with a unit covering the Women's Rights and Suffrage Movements.
This lesson is supplemented with the video series "The People Speak." Students love this video series because famous actors perform famous historical speeches.
