This is an assignment I created for the beginning of the year for my middle school leadership class. It could also be used at the high school level. In this activity, students interview a partner to find out all their pertinent information using the handout provided. They then used the provided planning guide to write their speech about their partner. A rubric is provided so that students know ahead of time how they will be graded, as well as a note-taking page to keep them busy while speeches are being given in class. The students loved this assignment as everyone was the subject of somebody else's speech and everyone was given their moment in the spotlight. It is also a great activity to get to know one another.
