Our Non-Fiction Picture Book Speech

Goal:  To continue working on our speaking skills, this time focusing on how to present using slides.  Skills practiced are the 6 speaking skills: Poise, voice, life, eye contact, (gestures - will not be assessed), and speed.

Product:  A 1- 2 minute speech, with 5 slides at least, rehearsed and ready to deliver on Tuesday, January 19th.

What to do:
  1. Decide what information you want to present, you must have a beginning, middle, and end
  2. Create your slides to enhance your information
  3. Create notecards or manuscript for your speech
  4. Rehearse to make sure it is between 1 and 2 minutes.  

Speech Prompt:  Provide an abstract (brief summary) of your non-fiction picture book topic with slides to support your knowledge.

Standard 7:  Present focused claims with support, using eye contact, volume, and elocution.  This is a summative growth assessment.

Helpful Hints:
  • You should rehearse this speech before you give it making sure you fit the time requirement, as well as how you will go through your slides (a clicker will be provided for students).
  • You should have it typed out on note cards or have something else to remember it by if you need it
  • Part of speaking well is drawing people in, how will you draw your audience into your speech?
  • You will need 5 slides at least to support your speech, you may not read off of your slides.
  • You can use the website http://recite.com/ to create inspirational slides or http://www.pixteller.com/

Some time will be provided in school for the assignment, however, students will need to rehearse and time their speech outside of school.
