We will be working on OPVL as part of our semester exam review. Here is the link to a description of the process – OPVL. We used this process during the Civil War and Reconstruction units to look at cartoons and speeches. You will have a section on the semester exam in which you will have two speeches to read and execute an OPVL analysis. The speeches are FDR’s First Inaugural Address and Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address – we have either read or listened to both speeches in class.
Next week we will use a different speech to practice (again) the OPVL process. Please review the information on the link above in advance.
