Back in November I had my 7th and 8th grade students write an essay about Barack Obama's Election Night speech and the results were very good. The question could be used for his Inauguration speech as well.
You can find a link to the assignment and the essays here...
There seems to be a ton of FABULOUS teaching ideas online the past few weeks. I took one idea from teachervision.com regarding the Inaugural Poem and will be using it as a teachable moment with my students tomorrow.
I've posted it on my blog: http://blogs.scholastic.com/9_12/2009/01/a-few-weeks-ago.html
Enjoy the day!
