This Social Studies: Roosevelt and the Fireside Chat lesson plan also includes:
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.
