This is the first speech that I assign to my public speaking classes. Traditionally, they are assigned to 'introduce themselves,' and many of the shyer students find this nerve racking. The "Celebrity Twin" assignment has been very popular, as students are able to choose their topics while still relating to their objectives. This packet includes assignment instructions, deadlines (adjustable for your class), a rubric, and my personal example which I give to students. This assignment could be easily aligned with CCSS and state anchor standards.
