Students will be responsible for several recitations during the year. They include: The Preambles to the Declaration of Independence, and United States Constitution, The Gettysburg Address, Paul Revere’s Ride, I Have a Dream, and several poems.
The students will be given a complete packet of all required recitations for the year, along with the grading criteria. Along with reciting the document accurately, they are also expected to have good posture, pacing, eye contact, volume, and clarity of voice. They will be reminded to practice the recitation two weeks prior to the performance due date. Recitations will also be posted on the teachers’ websites.
Please help your child with his/her memorization of these important documents.
