Nixon Resignation Speech - In this activity, students will analyze and synthesize the Nixon resignation speech of 1974 using a grid storyboard. Students will take several excerpts from his speech, explain their meaning and rationale, and infer as to how they think the public may have responded. Students will be able to explain, analyze, and synthesize just what Nixon was trying to say, as well as how it was received by the American public. By creating a rationale, as well as inferring how the public (or them) interpreted his words, students will gain a broader, more in depth understanding to one of the few presidential resignation speeches in American history. Furthermore, it will give a broader context to how he, and the public, responded to the Watergate scandal.
