Product Description
Giving students plenty of public speaking practice is important, but thinking of speech topics takes time! This digital resource requires no prep on your part, and can be used for impromptu or extemporaneous speeches, as a team-building or get-to-know you activity, to practice rhetorical appeals, for research , 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 this slideshow so that students can plan a bit before speaking. No more crazy topic searches, cutting, folding, etc!

Take a closer look with this VIDEO PREVIEW!
