This unit (6-10 days) leads students in analyzing "The Gettysburg Address" and the first part of "I have a Dream" for meaning, allusion, and parallelism in addition to writing their own eulogies using the same techniques. Each cycle has objectives listed for ELA & ESL students but could easily be adapted for U.S. History.
Slides outline instructions and provide sentence stems for students to help guide instruction and conversation. Students collaboration is high within this unit as students talk, investigate, and write about the texts, build a rubric for writing eulogies, and more.
Teacher prep includes making student copies, grouping students, and previewing lessons.
