This a fun filler speech to be given in the month of October. I have used this speech in my high school speech (oral communications) course with students ranging from sophomores to seniors. Prior to this unit, students are introduced to basic speech structure and have given at least three speeches. However, the Urban Legend Informative is given prior to learning the Informative Speech as the structure is not parallel to a true Informative Speech.
*However, this could also be adapted for classroom use in other grades without pre-taught speech structure as an outline is provided.
Students in my class were required to create a visual aid (poster) to accompany their speech. I required a specific number of photos and the title of their urban legend. This is a flexible requirement.
