    How to Interview a Visitor

    Description

    Get your students thinking about how best to write and present a speech for any occasion.

    This value bundle exposes students to some different types of speeches and provides valuable tips and practice in writing their own speech.

    Over 70 pages for activities and essential practice.

    1. Essential Tips for Writing a Speech

    A good speech is like a good play, movie, or song. It is a form of entertainment. And like all entertainment, if it doesn't entertain, then the feedback is immediate.

    There are not many classes that teach students how to write a speech, however there are many occasions in later life when we need to give a speech.

    These tips will help your students to develop an effective speech. The tips aren't the normal ones (like, 'make sure your speech has a beginning, a middle and an ending'). They are from many years of personal experience. I've written speeches for all occasions and a variety of professions.

    25 Plus pages of worksheets for students to practice these tips and then compile them all in to a speech for any purpose.

    2. How to Write & Present a Speech

    The ability to construct and confidently present a speech to any audience will always be one of the most sought after skills required in any form of employment.

    Any student needs to master the skills to speak confidently, and this pack of worksheets will provide every student with some unique insights to how to speak confidently.

    Topics include:

    - Developing a hook to involve the audience

    - Telling a story to engage the audience

    - Develop a Call to Action to finish off the speech

    - Tips to gain confidence with public speaking

    - And the importance of seeking feedback about a speech that was delivered.

    These topics and more are covered in these 20 plus pages of activities for the Middle School Student.

    3. Speak Up!

    The ability to speak in public is one of the hardest things that anybody can endure, but it is so much easier if you can adopt some powerful techniques that others use to make their speech memorable and at least survive on the stage.

    Young people should be given plenty of practice time to present a speech and this unit of work helped the kids in my class adopt some strategies use in their speeches.

    This pack consists of quality worksheets that review some famous speeches and shows the techniques that the speaker used to be persuasive and powerful.

    The content includes:

    - Analyzing Donald Trump's acceptance speech

    - Learning about Alliteration in speeches

    - Practising the use of Tricolons

    - Understanding the Power of Speech Metaphors

    - Ways to use Repetition in Speeches

    - Reviewing Inch by Inch, by Al Pacino

    - Reviewing Queen Elizabeth I’s Speech to the Troops at Tilbury, 1588

    - Discovering the power of The Gettysburg Address

    - Counting the metaphors in the 'I Have a Dream Speech', by Martin Luther King

    The pack also includes a bonus Rubric that can be used to analyze the effectiveness of any speech.
