FuHsing Project: Making an Inaugural Address Discuss this eTheme

The following English lesson introduces students to the American election process as well as the presidential inaugural address. Students read about the election process learning key vocabulary and phrases, then take a quiz to assess their reading comprehension. Students role-play dialogues about the election to practice using words and phrases in context. Afterwards, students watch a YouTube video of President Kennedy’s inaugural speech and read along to practice correct pronunciation, intonation, key word emphasis, and fluency. Finally, students write their own inaugural speech to be delivered before a live audience (teleconference). This speech will be evaluated by native speakers. Students receive feedback analyzing strengths and weaknesses and receive a rating based on a 4-point rubric grading system. Hyperlinks will connect students to relevant online materials.
