Product Description

Karaoke singing, reciting poetry, cooking, drawing, dancing, or sewing, many of these activities are sometimes considered hobbies, interests, or AVOCATIONS. An avocation is defined as a hobby or interest that may or may not generate income. Wow! learning to earn income while still in school! Now, that's what I call great dollar$ and $en$e!!! Get where I'm going????

Here's the short process for the assignment:

1. You (students) will have a minimum of 3 minutes and a maximum time limit of 5 minutes for your performance.

2. Pick an appropriate talent/skill that is viewable and done with a minimal amount of effort and preparation.

3. Let me (your teacher) know what props or minor equipment you will need for your presentation.

4. Our presentations will be video taped (smartphone or ipad), so smile, dress the part, and do your best!

5. If you are “stumped” on what you want to perform, look at the top of this paper and consider any of the listed avocations. (see handout)

6. Practice, practice, practice your presentation, so you will be a “hit” with the audience.

7. THIS ACTIVITY WILL COUNT AS A MAJOR TEST GRADE.

  • 25 PTS. FOR PREPARATION
  • 25 PTS. FOR PRESENTATION
  • 25 PTS. FOR CREATIVITY
  • 25 PTS. FOR OTHER

This is approximately a four weeks long activity (maybe shorter for high school students).

Good luck with this unconventional educational activity. My students loved it.
