I have used this Writing an Informative Speech Unit with both English Learners and native English speakers in speech classes. Students developed a better understanding of the targeted content area vocabulary words: informative, persuasive, introduction, conclusion, transition, and thesis. Students also created more cohesive speeches, because they were guided in the graphic organizer to manage transitions between the main points in the speech.
