Stump speeches are the focus of this exercise that combines politics and language arts. After learning about this type of speech, the class listens to Obama's 2008 presidential campaign stump speech and answers a series of questions that help with understanding its composition. Next, they meet in groups to discuss a list of six word stump speeches from former presidents, before writing their own. The activity culminates in posting these to a specific web site.
