About the Activity:
This activity asks students to view a speech and analyze it breakdown major points of the text and examining topics such as textual evidence, theme/main idea, author’s purpose, and tone. The format lends itself to reuse and works well as an anchor activity. Student understanding of a speech is also very evident (or not evident) in their culminating “claims” which allows for a handy formative and informative summative assessment. Each portion of the activity works great in both collaborative and individual settings. Additionally, the activity may be easily differentiated by requiring different sets of boxes, columns, and rows for different students and purposes.
