This graphic organizer serves as a tool for analyzing the complex language and meaning of primary source documents. While it can be used for any text selection, this particular packet focuses on The Gettysburg Address. The speech is divided into ten excerpts. The excerpts are of varied lengths and are easy to differentiate with.
Students can work individually or in pairs to complete each analysis task.
Students will be asked to list key terms and phrases, explain their
interpretation of the passage, discuss the significance of the work, and add an illustration.
