Significant Speeches ( a Primary Source)
About the series:
Blake’s new series of significant speeches are valuable tools for teaching History and English in upper primary/ high-school classes. Each book includes the full text of one or more speeches, plus numerous photographs, in an engaging, colourful format. Students benefit from a text introduction that puts the speech in its historical context and highlights key features of the address.
Hear from prime ministers, presidents, activists and soldiers. History has already judged their words and deeds as significant – Great Speeches will help  students understand why.
