This is a great exercise for the beginning of the year. With this easy to mark rubric, you can grade the student on the spot! Educators work so hard to teach their students how to present professionally, and this practice can be used every month or every term to see how they improve. It is based on eye contact, body posture, elocution and two other categories. It offers a very simple rubric, with very simple ways of scoring! I hope you enjoy this tool that I used over and over again with every level.
As a final note, I would photocopy each student's rubric and see how they compare and progress throughout the class!
