Print-and-go handouts guide students through their discussion, planning, peer review, editing, and rehearsal. An editable slide is included for the final assignment, so you can customize the assessment for your students’ needs. This assignment makes learning oral presentation skills engaging and interesting.
This 13-page resource includes the following:
-TED talk analysis worksheets
-peer review and revision handouts
