FIRST we'll read about the basics of speech...
This unit follows the first 5 chapters of Perfection Learning's
38 Basic Speech Experiences.
Students will be preparing a presentation on their selected
chapter. They are required to complete a handout and an electronic visual.
Electronic Visual Can be:
Something at http://www.studystack.com
You make an account and create your NEW STACK, which offers quizzes, hangman,
crossword puzzles, etc.
for examples (good or bad). If you find something you like, http://www.zamzar.com
converts videos. Be sure your video actually ties in with the written
material. People often find videos that don't follow the chapter all that
well or it's not clear why they chose them.
A power point
Inspiration program on the laptops (the icon that's an
orange star). You can make an outline this way or notes quite easily.
Next, we'll prepare our own speech...
Pick a topic that interests you and can be interesting to your audience.
Drum up research. You must have something more than just the internet.
Ask someone who knows about your topic and interview them for 5 minutes.
They'll give you a ton of stuff you can use.
Organize your speech. The strongest ideas go in the middle and end. You
need to have 3-5 main ideas. Those main ideas will be broken down into small
I HIGHLY suggest you make an outline using a software called Inspiration.
- If you break a main point down once, you have to break it twice. If you have to have an A, you have to have a B.
- Write in complete sentences or phrases. NOT BOTH. Most people your age will just write in phrases, which is totally okay with me.
- Just do the body now. We'll do the introduction and conclusion later.
Here's an example outline (pdf) that will help you write yours.
