Quotation Activity – Gettysburg Address (from Connect – Power of Process Activity)

Quotation Activity – Gettysburg Address (from Connect – Power of Process Activity) It is important to be able to effectively incorporate your sources through direct quotation. For this activity, you will use Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address to practice writing an essay while effectively incorporating quotations to help support your discussion. For this activity you will write an essay and address the following points: What is a "proposition" in the sense that Lincoln uses it? What does it mean to "consecrate" a place? What is "hallowed" ground? The Gettysburg Address is short but very famous. He was the President, he could have spoken longer, and most speakers of that day in fact gave much longer speeches. He wasn't pressed for time. He had time to prepare. A long speech was expected of him. Why do you think Lincoln kept it so short? (Hint: Where was he speaking and why? How did his "rhetorical situation" influence him?) Do you see any correlations between Douglass’s work and this work? If so, how do you see this occurring in the text? Be sure to quote from Douglass if you see a correlation. Requirements: Your written paper should be 2-3 pages in length not counting the title and reference pages, which you must include. You must accurately insert a quote in your analysis to provide in-text evidence from the address, and you must comment on the quote to demonstrate you are thinking in a critical manner. Your paper must be formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA.

High school essay topics: say it loud and clear with eloquent and dedicated writing
School life teaches many lessons indeed in a world of color and fantasy, friends and parties, picnics and games! The growing up process has much to do with language learning and speaking and writing are of crucial importance. Both the skills develop simultaneously of course through fun activities, nursery rhymes and the writing of different kinds of essays. A personal statement would be among the easiest to write with private thoughts being woven around an idea about a person, place or thing. Writing has developed far before high school essay topics can be attempted. What skills are we looking for? Spelling and punctuation, grammar and sentence making, organized thoughts and planned writing are all necessary. Besides, planning usually falls into the three parts of introduction, body and conclusion and suits most forms of writing.
