This informative speech assignment sheet and rubric are used in my classroom as a final assessment in an informative speech unit. I teach a public speaking class that consists mostly of juniors and seniors, however, this assignment can easily be modified for use in any level classroom. The rubric looks for elements of a well-developed speech and outline (can be adapted to essay), eye contact, speech rate, and other important things necessary for a successful speech. The assignment outlines expectations and topic ideas. Both handouts are Word documents and can be fully edited to suit your needs.
