The Gettysburg Address Annotation Assignment in Google Classroom

The Gettysburg Address Annotation Assignment

Carefully read The Gettysburg Address. Circle words you don’t know. Identify main ideas—thesis statements, topic sentences—and also words, phrases, or sentences that appeal to you, that seem important, or that you don’t understand. Look for figures of speech such as metaphors, similes, and personification — as well as imagery and striking detail. If you don’t know the technical term for something, just describe it. For example, if you come across an adjective-and-noun combination that seems contradictory, such as “meager abundance,” and you don’t know that the term for it is oxymoron, you might still note the juxtaposition of two words that have opposite meanings. Ask questions or comment on what you have read. In short, as you read, listen to the voice in your head, and write down what that voice is saying.
