Washington's Farewell Address is broken up into short, manageable segments for middle school aged students. I have assigned this for H.W. in the past with higher achieving students. With lower level students I would work with them on it in class or give them a word bank with themes. They would have to try to match the theme with the statement.
Either way, it is a simple way to cover the ins and outs of his farewell address.
E-mail me if you need more ideas.
