Podcast Example - Historical Speech

Historical Speech - Beyond Vietnam

Historical Speech. In this example podcast, an excerpt of “Beyond Vietnam -- A Time to Break Silence” by Martin Luther King Jr. is provided. When an historical speech is assigned, students should be given the context of the speech, either in class, as part of the assignment, or as part of the podcast. A written script of the speech is also helpful to many students. Students should also have some focus ideas or questions in order to both structure their listening and provide some accountability. Great technology integration could be reactions posted as blog entries! Excerpts of historical speeches are available across the internet, and the direct links can be assigned instead of creating podcasts for download. For a complete version and text of King's speech, please visit American Rhetoric Top 100 Speeches.
