This great activity focuses on demonstrating to students all the reasons they have to be confident before during, and after public speaking.
Worksheet includes 4 activities in which students find movies, songs, quotations, etc. that provide students with confidence (I call it their pre-game "hype" list.), compile a list of reasons to be confident, and demonstrate how confidence appears. Worksheet begins with a quick write and includes a purpose statement.
This is a great activity that can also function as a speaking activity. You can even have students create their own playlist or presentation to demonstrate what gives them confidence. I also have students act out some of the sections to get students up, moving, speaking, and laughing.
