Our last speech for the semester is upon us. Students will teach the audience how to complete a task or process. Students will bring materials with them to use during their speeches. Please see the assignment packet below. Sone will post links to example speeches soon!
Friday, November 11 (6th period) and Monday, November 14 (4th period) students will have the first half of class to fine-tune their speech outlines and write either their physical note cards or their teleprompter slides. During the second half of class, students will rehearse their Persuasive speech for a couple different classmates, getting feedback.
All Persuasive Speeches will be completed November 15-18.
Instructional PowerPoint and note guide below. Speech assignment packet is also included.
Over the next few class periods, we will be engaging in a brief Debate Unit. This is in preparation for our next big speech, the Persuasive Speech.
We are spending several days in the library, developing our informative speeches. If absent, please use the following link to access our class project on the library website.

We have completed our News Broadcast Project and I think they were pretty successful given the short time frame for development. We are now moving on to understanding, developing and delivering the Informative Speech. I am including the link to the group of videos I use to instruct about the speech as well as the speech assignment packet.

Students will gain an understanding of how media influences the culture as well as explore a variety of propaganda techniques used in mass communication. Students will work in groups to produce a news broadcast and commercial.
After students complete our brief quiz over the Basics (or Fundamentals) of Communication, we will begin working on our first organized speech, "All About Me." See the speech packet below.
