Washington's Farewell address is overwhelming if you read the entire thing! I've pulled 6 excerpts from his Farewell Address for students to analyze. In this purchase you will be able to choose from 4 different ways for students to interpret this important document.


  • 1) Tweet your summary
  • 2) a "normal" - put it in your own words
  • 3) Create a HIP HOP/RAP summary (this one is fun)
  • 4) Match the excerpt to modern words (cut out strips - suggested to be used with struggling learners)


In addition to the 4 versions of the assignment, you will receive instructions, and a key to the modern matching version.


Why do students love it?

  • The primary source excerpts are "chunked" which make them easier to understand. Not overwhelming!
  • Student choice! The excerpts are the same in each version, they can choose which one to use to show what they know!


Why do teachers love it?

  • Instant differentiation.
  • The modified version is done for you - to help your struggling learners.
  • It includes the most important parts of Washington's Farewell address.
