All across the world, people in different places and spaces are being impacted by natural disasters.
In this resource, students research, gather & organize, and communicate their findings about one particular natural disaster that has devastated a part of the world recently. This allows them to create work that is not only meaningful to them but has relevance to their everyday lives.
Presented in the form of a speech or public speaking, students have the opportunity to build research skills and learn about what is happening around the world.
This activity allows you as a teacher to assess for a mark in:
--> Oral Communication
--> Language (Writing)
In my classroom, students were given two periods each day (Language) to work on their speech. The resource also provided them with tips on what to include in their introduction, body, and conclusion; as well as their oral presentation.
