Today’s lesson featured the use of the iPad Minis. Thus, today’s blog post serves as a road map through that lesson.
STUDENTS, now that you have received your iPad Mini, begin work on Lesson 9 Quiz below. Remember to put the same answers on to your quarter sheet of paper as well. You will be able to answer the quiz below ONLY ONCE.

Now that you have finished your quiz, take a moment to read the speeches below. Thereafter you will create a 3-way Venn Diagram to compare three powerful speakers we discussed this week.
Step 1: Read this version of “The Gettysburg Address.”
- If you experience trouble with this link, try this one, OR Google “The Gettysburg Address.”
Step 2: Read the introduction to and the “squashed” version of Socrates’ “Apology.”
Step 3: Given all that you have learned about the words used by Dr. King, President Obama, President Reagan, President Lincoln, and Socrates, write a brief, 5-sentence paragraph comparing and contrasting three of these figures and post it with only your FIRST NAME and your LAST Initial on to this Padlet.
Step 4: Revise your “If I Were President” speech from yesterday.
Step 5: Use whatever time you have left in class to finish putting your “Dear Dr. King” letter into KidBlog.
- Input your “Dear Dr. King” letter into KidBlog by 11:59 p.m. TONIGHT if you have not done so already.
- Create the final draft of your “If I Were President” speech. Be prepared to present on Monday.
