Remembrance of Things Past

Engage critical and social thinking by exploring the value of language and word choice. The class considers the article "The Silence of the Historic Present" and analyzes several presidential speeches. They engage in class discussion, create posters illustrating the ideas behind famous words, and develop mock speeches. Definitely a 5-star instructional activity.
