Let's generate a list to share with your teachers.
1. Read Lincoln's Gettysburg Address silently.
This IS difficult!
It's OK to struggle and get frustrated-take a deep breath and go back for more!
Highlight/look up difficult words; write out any questions or confusions.
Practice makes perfect!
2. I will read the text out loud as you follow along.
3. Write a brief translation in your own words. 1-2 sentences.
paraphrase, don't summarize
No questions, just try!
There is no "wrong" so you're not going to get it wrong and we won't kick you out of school if you do!
4. Guided Discussion
In the first sentence, what does Lincoln tell us about this new nation?
What happened four score and seven years ago?
5. Rewrite your translation of Lincoln's first paragraph.
Let's take this opportunity to get with our feeder patterns!
