Woodrow Wilson's first inaugural speech when he became president was a telling indicator of the type of presidency he would have, or at least try to have. He started out trying to be starkly different than the charismatic Roosevelt and lackluster Taft.
This activity helps students read and understand President Wilson's first official speech as president. As they read through the speech, they will be able to decipher the difficult language and broad ideas to move the US forward into the second decade of the 20th Century.
This activity doesn't include the text of the speech, but it can be found rather easily on several websites.
