Learner Challenge

Speaker, Audience, and Purpose

Your Task

In order to show you have the skills to identify audience, speaker, and purpose, you will need to complete a challenge. Below is an attached PDF of President Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address. Read it carefully and once finished, identify the audience, speaker, and purpose. Be sure to go beyond just the surface; for example don't just say the speaker is the president, instead go deeper and explain who he is and why he is qualified to say what he is saying, what is the significance of the text to him?
