This file includes THREE informative speaking activities for secondary (7th-12th) students: biographical speech, environmental issues speech, and informative choice boards. All three activities require students to research a topic and present a speech (topic lists, guidelines, and rubrics provided). Two of the speeches (biographical and environmental) require a technology-based visual aid (slide show presentation). All activities provide step-by-step directions for students and useful tips! Not only will these speeches help students with their public speaking skills, but they will also learn to structure and write an informative speech (implementing formats and skills that will help them in ELA classes). Adjust each activity as necessary, based on class size and student needs.
