have writing styles or words changed since the birth of our nation?
Select two presidents to compare. Create a visual presentation. And
speeches changed from president to president or do they continue to
say the same thing, but in different words? Select two presidents to
compare. Create a visual presentation such as a chart to show the similarities
through the resources to find interesting changes. Inaugural
speeches will have good examples of writing styles as well as what
president's wanted the public to hear. Some of the sound recordings
of speeches will also be useful in comparisons. The Portrait Gallery
will give you a start on men's clothing while the display of inaugural
gowns by first ladies will help with women. Did any adornments such
as feathers create raise any issues? See the exhibit The
Feather Trade at the National Museum of American History. Check
other sites as well. It's all a matter of style.
