I’ve joined with dozens, if not hundreds of other TpT authors to celebrate Inauguration Day in a new and exciting way this year. We’ve created resources that celebrate kindness, honesty, truthfulness, inclusion, and have made those resources “forever freebies” so that teachers can truly celebrate and honor these character traits and what has made our country great for hundreds of years.
In the creation of my resource, I tried to honor both purposes by creating an Inaugural Address Card Sort, which allows you to take four Inaugural Addresses considered to be the greatest of all time and evaluate them for their content and the words spoken in that day. Evaluate, categorize, and then discuss who said, “With malice toward none, with charity for all, …” See if you can determine who would have claimed, “We wish it because we think it is right and not because we are afraid.” It’s kindness and truthfulness on a whole different level, and one your high schoolers might enjoy as a special twist come this Inauguration Day.
Thank you to ELA Buffet and Desktop Learning Adventures for putting this blog hop together for us so that we could get together and share all our great resources. You ladies are amazing. Thank you.
