PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Make the end of the school year meaningful for your high school students by having them read, view, and write commencement (graduation) speeches. This lesson is part of my Inspired Writing series; students use mentor texts as models for their own writing.

In this lesson, students first watch videos and analyze several commencement speeches. After watching the speeches, they complete graphic organizers to synthesize common techniques and identify universal ideas in these speeches. Next, they use the writing process to brainstorm, draft, revise, edit, and write their own speeches. Finally, they present these speeches to their classmates or other audience. This resource provides an excellent way to incorporate media literacy into your instruction.

This 13-page resource includes the following: Explicit Lesson Plan with Identified Common Core ELA Anchor Standards, Speech Analysis Handout, Synthesis Handout, Brainstorming Graphic Organizer, Peer Review Guide, Proofreading Checklist, Sample Key, and Rubric. Links to online speeches are also included.
