Product Description
This public speaking bundle contains eight different sets of public speaking topics - that's 256 different topics - and requires no prep on your part! Use for impromptu or extemporaneous speaking, as a team-building activity, to practice rhetorical appeals, or for a formal speaking assignment.

Have you ever been caught scrambling at the last minute for speech topics? Dreaming them up, trying to make them engaging, printing, cutting, folding...I've been there, but solved this problem by curating the topics that my students engaged with the most and creating this easy-to-use digital resource.

Now, all I have to do when I want to give students a bit of impromptu speaking practice is choose a slideshow, project it up on the board, and draw student names. Each student comes to the front clicks the mouse to reveal his or her topic, and speaks for 30-60 seconds or more.

If I want to give students a more formal speaking opportunity, I simply assign each student a number and post or print the graphic organizer version of my chosen slideshow so that students can plan a bit before speaking. No more crazy topic searches, cutting, folding, etc!
