Using Presentation and Speech Activities
Giving students the opportunity to present their learning through presentation and speech activities can be an extremely effective way to inspire student interest in a subject, build on a student’s own interests and strengths to demonstrate their understanding and/or point of view on a subject, and develop students’ critical and creative thinking skills as they make choices about how best to explain what they have learned to others.
The resources in this tool kit are designed to give you some ideas on how to use presentation and speech activities in your classroom, provide you sample lesson plans and templates to build from, and link you to additional resources on the topic. Additional presentation/speech activity idea and lesson plan Teacher Tools can be found with many videos throughout the Educate.Today website.
Have a lesson plan, article you’ve written, or a video of a student project incorporating presentation and speech strategies that you’d like us to look at for possible publication on our Educate.Today website? Send us the completed form you’ll find here and we’ll get back in touch.
