Product Description
This writing activity asks students to image that they have just been elected as president of the United States and must give their inaugural address.

The assignment is three paragraphs long and asks students to do the following:

- Write 3 paragraphs (topics for each paragraph are given)
- Use at least 6 words from the vocabulary lists included (you can easily use your own vocabulary)
- Allude at least 1 event from U.S. history
- Utilize an example of anaphora
- Create a poster of their inaugural address

In general, paragraphs will be from 3 sentences long (beginning/struggling writers) and up to 8 sentences (advanced writers). The degree of complication can be easily changed. For example, an Honors level student may have to use 10 vocabulary words and 2 allusions to events while a lower level student may have to use just 5 vocab words.

This activity is easily divided into each section with very clear expectations for each paragraph along with example or starter sentences.

**2 BONUS vocabulary lists (10 words each) with a word, definition and example sentence. Vocabulary lists will work best during a unit on speeches or U.S. documents such as:

- The Declaration of Independence
- JFK Inaugural Address
- Gettysburg Address
- The Emancipation Proclamation
- I Have a Dream speech
