Gettysburg Address

Dear Colleagues:

A little over 150 years ago, President Abraham Lincoln delivered one of the most famous speeches of all time in order to memorialize those lives lost in the Battle of Gettysburg.  I would like to share with you a link to the various copies of the speech and an additional link to a resource instructing how to conduct a close reading of the speech.  This is a wonderful opportunity to discuss the differences between the written and spoken word and how one might write for the content area of history.

Happy Holidays.
