Have your students evaluate Steve Jobs? What grade would he get for his presentation? This activity has students look for what makes Steve Jobs an "excellent" presenter. This is best used before your students have to give a presentation in class.
Watch Steve Jobs' presentation here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vN4U5FqrOdQ
And have your students follow along as they fill out their evaluation.
This lesson was used before newcomer English Language Learner 11th grade students prepared for their end-of-year portfolio presentations. While it was created for this group of students, it could be used for middle school and high school students who are or are not English Language Learners.
We did not watch the entire speech in class, instead we watched a 15 minute clip. In order to complete the worksheet, students can watch 10-15 minutes.
