These 10 no-prep speech analysis and comprehension worksheets are an excellent modern and engaging activity to have students take ownership of their learning and dig deeper and closely read a speech. In printable and digital format, they enable you to scaffold the speech-reading process and take students step by step deeper into the text. The sheets can be used in isolation, or you could use several for one speech depending on what your needs are.
Student Experience: The questions and tasks on these graphic organizers correlate directly with not only CCSS anchor standards, but also with higher-level thinking analysis skills on topics such as theme, mood, figurative language, structure, tone, background, and more. I've used these worksheets in my room for years with classic speeches such "Speech in the Virginia Convention," "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God," Lincoln's "Gettysburg Address" and even modern speeches including "I am Malala," Emma Watson's "HeforShe" speech, and countless others. That's the best thing about speech worksheets such as these: they work with any speech you have for any level of secondary students.
