Detailed description:
Students will write and perform a 1 minute speech discussing what type of superhero they would be if they had to invent one,or a speech introducing themselves to the class, or on any other self-chosen topic.  

If you are introducing yourself here are suggestions for things to include:
  • What does your name mean or how did you get your name?
  • Where were you born?
  • What are things you are great at?
  • What are things you are passionate about?
  • What is your family like?

If you are doing the superhero here are suggestions for things to include:  
  • How would they become a superhero?
  • What would their superpowers be?
  • What would their name be?
  • What would they look like?
  • What would their main purpose be?
  • Would they be good superheroes or villains?  Why would they choose that?
  • What would their superhero gadgets be?
  • Where would their lair (hideout) be and what would it look like?

Students should:
  • Use their time wisely in class so they do not have to work on it at home.
  • Time their speech to make sure it is right around 1 minute, not too short and not too long
  • Practice their speech to make sure they feel comfortable.
  • Have a way of supporting themselves through their speech, meaning they can use notecards or a manuscript, however, they may not read their speech but need to deliver it as best as they can.
  • Content does not get assessed, only speaking skills.
