This biographical informative speech activity is the perfect combination of research, writing, implementation of technology, and public speaking for ANY secondary subject area! Students will choose a historic or modern-day figure who made (or has made) a positive impact on society. They will brush up on their research skills, learn the correct way to cite sources, learn how to organize a 5-part speech, and create an eye-catching and engaging visual aid.
Everything you need is in this 11-page, step-by-step file. Included are guidelines for the teacher, a clear format for students to follow (time format, use of note cards, etc.), topic ideas, outline, technology guidelines, grading rubric, and a peer critique chart. All guidelines can be modified for any size class, grade, or learning level!
