Audience Adaptations: Inaugural Addresses Link

Now that we have examined FDR's Inaugural Address together, it is time for your to consider how another president's speech is adapted for his audience.  Not only should you consider who is in attendance--which was largely the same, though began to reach more people once they started to be televised--you should consider the time period of the speech and how it is reflected in the speech content and diction (word choice).  The site will provide you with a little bit of background, but you may need to delve deeper.  Your output from this endeavor should be a marked-up copy of the speech and a half-page explanation of the main things that you discovered while looking at it (in relation to adapting for an audience).
