Entry Task: Reading “Wrath of Grapes” speech (10 minutes)As students enter, distribute the Assessment Text: “Wrath of Grapes”speech (excerpt). Tell them that today they will show you how much they have learned about analyzing the structure of a speech by completing an assessment of this text. Ask students to silently read the speech to themselves, using the posted vocabulary and circling words they do not know. After students have read the speech, answer any clarifying questions about vocabulary. Make sure that students notice when Chávez is giving this speech: It is May 1986, a few years after his Commonwealth Club Address. Remind students that in the previous speech, Chávez called for a renewal of the grape boycott. As he gives this “Wrath of Grapes” speech, the grape boycott is continuing.Created by Expeditionary Learning, on behalf of Public Consulting Group, Inc.© Public Consulting Group, Inc., with a perpetual license granted to Expeditionary Learning Outward Bound, Inc.NYS Common Core ELA CurriculumG7:M2A:U2:L8 June 2014 3
