This activity allows your students to analyze the SOTU address and instead of just watching it...it actively engages them in the address. This mini lesson has a student worksheet to fill out during the speech, suggestions/procedure sheet for the teacher as well.
If you do not give this assignment the night before the address, you can do it the next day as a mini lesson in your Presidential unit, or at any point in your course. I suggest that a comparison between the current years address and another president's address can be done, but that depends on your time constraints.
