How To Presentations Assignment

How To Presentations

One of the goals in 5th grade is to get students ready to present on topics, which definitely counts as a lifelong needed skill.  We have therefore decided that the students need to teach each other something through their presentation.


Here are some guidelines:
  • The presentations can be either filmed and shown to the class or done live in class.
  • All of the presentations will start Monday, December 16th
  • Presentations must be between 2 and  4 minutes
  • Students will be evaluated on how loud and clear they spoke to their audience, how they presented, and whether they kept it interesting (rubrics will be provided).  This will be a combination of peer evaluation and teacher evaluation.
  • Topic is student's choice, as long as we learn how to do something.
  • Past presentations have been on how to score a hockey goal, how to ice a cupcake, how to fold origami etc.
Here is the rubric we will use to evaluate.
