Description

Our Gettysburg Address lesson plan introduces students to Abraham Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg Address. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner and use their creativity to consider how to deliver specific lines from this speech to a younger audience; they then present it to their classmates, strengthening their presentation and public speaking skills. Students are also asked to define given words from the address and provide a synonym.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to summarize, identify reasons for, orally present, and define selected vocabulary from, the Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln.

Gettysburg Address

I used this in conjunction with the students regular textbook. It made the address easier to understand for some of the students. The activities at the end made the learning experience complete for them.
