Description

Overview:
In this lesson, students will read and listen to/view a speech by Jesse Jackson during the 1988 Democratic National Convention. Students will deeply analyze the speech for content and purpose, focusing on the relevancy and effectiveness of Jackson’s personal story that he uses to conclude his speech. Students will analyze how this concluding section contributes to the whole speech and to the development of ideas expressed throughout the speech. Students will then independently complete a RAFT assignment in which they may self-select the Role, Audience, and Format; all students will have the same topic – reaction to hearing the speech. The RAFT writing will further explore the impact of the personal testimony on the speech as a whole. This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
