Offered for grades 3-8, Ford’s Lincoln Oratory Festival enables students to experience the power of public speaking to communicate ideas and inspire others. Classrooms study speeches by Abraham Lincoln and work with a Ford’s Teaching Artist over a series of five classroom visits to stage performances of the speeches. Throughout the program, students expand their vocabulary, develop public-speaking skills and build confidence as they bring Lincoln’s historic words to life. The program culminates with students sharing their work on one of two festival days in February.
