This packet of materials contains student handouts, checklists, and rubrics for four different student speeches. The first speech is a low-pressure assignment, aimed at giving students practice on their delivery before they are actually engaging in traditional public speaking. The following speeches are the persuasive speech, the informative speech, and the demonstration speech. All speeches come complete with student checklists and rubrics that allow teachers to set their own deadlines. A listening report for students to fill out is also included for the demonstration speech.
These speeches build public speaking skills in a carefully scaffolded way. The assignments also fit into units on persuasion and research. Check out my store for supporting materials for these units, such as an eNotecard template on PowerPoint.
