Lincoln Online Oratory Project: 
SA's eighth grade recreates Lincoln's First Inaugural Address

Lincoln Oratory Online Project, 8th grade 2019
Lincoln Oratory Online Project, 8th grade 2019

History came to life for eighth grade students at Salisbury Academy as they studied, dissected, and presented Lincoln's First Inaugural Address in a video project as part of the Ford's Theatre's Lincoln Online Oratory program.  Read the full article on the experience in this week's Salisbury Post.

Eighth grade students reflect on the Lincoln Online Oratory Project:

Wyatt: "It was great to work together and see our finished product."

Lucy:  "We got to learn about Lincoln and really know how he felt and what he was thinking during this time in our country's history."

Nate: "I have trouble with tone but I feel like this helped."

Rodina: "We represented President Lincoln's speech in a passionate, interesting, and engaging way."

Jaiden: "I learned to speak with confidence and be more interesting to listen to."

Kate: "It is great that we can begin public speaking at such a young age because it will be expected as we get older."

Bailey: It's a new, fun, and innovative way to teach speaking skills and history - completely hands-on and mostly student driven."

Brooke: "This was an interactive experience and ties into our history class."

Elsie: "The project was hands-on and allowed us to be ourselves while reliving history and learning about Abraham Lincoln."

Quinn: "This was a new, fun and innovative way to teach speech and history, and it allowed us to speak to an expert on speech and our government."

Harrison: "It was fun because our coach was talented and had a good time with us."

Kaylan: "Saying a line in a very important speech in history is better than just reading a textbook and answering questions. You get involved by doing it yourself."

Leah: "I'm better at public speaking now."

Gigi: "When we started, we dissected the whole speech and learned the background of the speech, before we knew which parts we would each present."

Kendall: "We all got a chance to work together and bond while learning, and we were able to see the finished product after a lot of hard work."

Damian: "I came away from the experience as a better speaker, more confident with talking in front of others."

Miles: "I loved being able to stand up and present with my classmates. We got to learn about presenting in a fun way."

Ann Hunter: "When you speak it, it's more meaningful than reading it. It's a fun and new way to teach history because we can all get into character."

Abbey: "It was an experience that was fun and different, a new way to learn."
