Lincoln Online Oratory Project Virtual Watch Party

Celebrate the students and educators who took part in the Lincoln Online Oratory Project! Join us on April 19 at 1 p.m. ET.

About the program: This national program for grade 3 – 12 pairs a Ford’s Theatre teaching artist with classrooms across the nation to collaborate with educators and students to prepare to perform a speech. Using the words of great orators like President Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Eleanor Roosevelt and others, students learn the historical context of a speech, the power of oratory and the fundamentals of performance and public speaking.
