    I don't have a lesson plan, but I definitely wouldn't call the speech "infamous."

    I truly hope you mean "famous" rather than "infamous."

    Definition of Infamous

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Of very bad report; having a reputation of the worst kind; held in abhorrence; guilty of something that exposes to infamy; base; notoriously vile; detestable; as, an infamous traitor; an infamous perjurer.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Causing or producing infamy; deserving detestation; scandalous to the last degree; as, an infamous act; infamous vices; infamous corruption.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Branded with infamy by conviction of a crime; as, at common law, an infamous person can not be a witness.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Having a bad name as being the place where an odious crime was committed, or as being associated with something detestable; hence, unlucky; perilous; dangerous.

    According to Ned Nederlander of "The Three Amigos" ---Infamous means more than famous! Just kidding--couldn't help myself--I love that movie.
