Wednesday Web of the Week: American Rhetoric

Site Address:

American Rhetoric contains some of the very best American Rhetoric ever! This site hosts mp3 files of the best speeches given on American Soil by political leaders. While the site is a bit hard to navigate, it does have lists of the most important speeches of all time, ranked for your learning. It isn't clear who ranked them as most influential, but still having every one of those speeches is a prime example of effective speaking. Another list ranks speeches by decade making the study of American History come truly alive as you hear speeches by leaders of that time.

Other interesting highlights include:

The site provides some terrific resources for teaching about speech, language and history. Check it out!

Welcome to Jorgie Learning

I really am learning and this blog is maintained both as a record of some of what I am doing as well as a place for me to train and teach others about creating an online presence. So please don't mind the dust. We aren't remodeling we are learning!

Visit some of my other blogs or the other blogs I find mildly entertaining for a more polished feel.
