Social Studies: Roosevelt and the Fireside Chat

Students research Franklin D. Roosevelt's "Four Freedoms" and present their own "Fireside Chats" to the class. Once they review the freedoms listed in the speech, they discuss what they meant then and explain their current relevance. Finally, students choose a freedom they consider important and explain its importance in a short speech. The speeches can be taped to further simulate the Fireside Chat method of delivery.

For those topics that are not covered fully in the student textbook, Lesson Planet is a fantastic tool to find materials to complement the text and provide both additional instruction and reinforcement to the learning process.
