Since 2011, the Ford’s Theatre National Oratory Fellows program has worked with teachers across the country to bring public speaking and performance into grades 5-8 through a framework that enlivens history and English Language Arts learning.

Here, any teacher can draw on the knowledge of our teaching artists and oratory fellows. You can teach all of the lessons or choose what works for your needs. All lessons are primarily written for grades 5-10, but we give you tips to differentiate.

Interested in participating in a program? Ford’s Theatre offers teachers and students life-changing opportunities to learn the power of oratory.
