1. Topic-
How to Speech Assignment
2. Content-
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-

The purpose of this assignment is to show us how to do something we may not now know how to do, or might do incorrectly. [Refinishing a bookshelf, making an evening gown, folding origami boxes, tuning an instrument] It is the final oral part of the Public Speaking unit

4. Objectives-
deliver effective oral presentations;demonstrate active listening through oral feedback;

(G) follow oral and written directions;

(H) demonstrate the ability to give oral instructions for completing a simple task;

5. Materials and Aids-
Internet, Microsoft word , Grading rubic
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

Deliver my HOW TO SPEECH as an example of excellent work- verbal delivery

B. Development-

This speech should be 8 - 10 minutes in length. You will show us step by step how to complete the task you are demonstrating for us. You have seen many such demonstrations on television. You will not have time to do the whole project in the minutes given. So you show us how to begin each step, and then have a pre-completed example of how that step will look when the project is complete. [Just like Martha Stewart or American chopper] If you are demonstrating how to make something edible, please bring enough of the finished product to share with the class.

Written Portion: When you present to the class you need to submit a paper which includes the following: 1} a list of materials needed to complete the project if I chose to do so. This is the same thing as the list of ingredients at the start of a recipe. 2} a step by step outline of what you are going to show us in class. You may use a bulleted list, or use numbers to explain the order of the work. 3} an estimate of how long the whole task would take me to complete, include drying time etc. if that is part of the process. 4} an estimate of the cost. Will this be more or less expensive than buying the product or paying for a pre-made one? If it costs the same or more to do it myself, why should I bother to do this? [to customize the result, because the quality is better, etc.]

See my example posted on E4


C. Practice-

Graphic organizers examples completed as a class on orverhead. Dissect my speech example on overhead as a class

D. Independent Practice-

Student will fill out thier own graphic organizer (available on E4) for a scheduled meeting with me to ensure proper planning and organization. This will count as a daily grade. Organize speech as my example .

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

Peer tutoring, extended time,

F. Checking for understanding-

Meet with each student indvidually to go over graphic organizer and ideas. Give suggestions.

Rubric on E4 posted under announcements-
Name: ________________________________

You are to keep this sheet and hand into me just prior to your speech.
You must present your speech on the date you are assigned; you cannot go the following day unless you are absent. If you ARE absent, you’ll be the first person to go the following day. If you do not have your visual aids, you will have to improvise and do the speech without them (and lose the appropriate points). If you’re smart, you’ll bring your materials at least a day in advance. I will store them in the classroom.

Reminders for the day of the speech
1) You will be getting a separate listening grade during others’ speeches. Each time you are caught talking or being distracting during someone else’s speech, I will take off a point from this grade.
2) Some students have a habit of insulting themselves during the speech (probably a defense mechanism). Don’t ever make yourself look bad—you’re trying to impress your audience.
3) If you make a mistake, correct it and move on. Don’t make a big deal about it because then you’ll draw even MORE attention to it.
4) Don’t say “In my speech, I’m going to tell you about...” Instead, say something to the effect of, “I will demonstrate how to...”
5) If you ask a question to your audience, and they give a different answer than you expected, don’t just respond with your “practiced” response; your response should FIT the audience’s answer.
6) You will be evaluated by your entire class so that you can feel great about what you did well and know how to correct your weaknesses for the future.
a) TWO formal evaluations (the same evaluation you were given) using these symbols:
i) + (great)
ii) √ (good enough)
iii) – (did poorly or not at all)
b) The rest of class will evaluate you by writing the following on a sheet of paper:
i) Something positive about your speech
ii) something you need to improve on
1) Get classmates to help you set up
2) Arrange desks/tables as needed
3) Have a volunteer pass out materials to students ahead of time
1) If you disagree with your grade, we will watch the videotape together and find any discrepancies.
2) If you have a very creative visual aid, I’d like to take a digital picture to show next year’s students.
