Words are powerful. This edition of COBBLESTONE Magazine travels back in time to look at some of the most powerful words in history, the context in which they were created, and the lasting impact they’ve had in shaping who we are today.

 

Do speeches matter? Of course, they do, but COBBLESTONE gets to the heart of WHY speeches matter. Kids will dive into the lives and arguments of some of the most influential and most quoted orators in history and discover how their well-crafted words changed the world. From Patrick Henry and Abraham Lincoln who delivered history-changing speeches to establish the foundations of independence and equality that shaped our country to Ronald Reagan’s demands to unite Germany and end the Cold War which has resulted in a new world order, the reasons speeches matter will become clear. You’ll also learn what makes a great speech and try your hand at a few speech-related challenges.
