Desperately looking for meaningful resources to teach my Sr. Speech Class

This lesson has great resources and ideas. It was frustrating that the list of speeches had duplicates (JFK Inaugural, FDR on Pearl Harbor) and some of the speeches are not available online (Twain "The American Press," Mead "The Planetary...," and La Farge "The Modern Museum").
