The three most common types of speeches that students have to deliver are impromptu, persuasive and dramatic monologue.
This presentation takes them through what can be specific to each type as well as speaking skills that are common to all three.
There are also student handouts in pdf format for each of the types. There is a link to these.
You will also find some suggestions for impromptu speaking activities and a copiable sheet of mini marking rubrics.
I have found that 3-4 of the students marking each of the speeches is optimal as if you do too many it takes too much time to go through them in sufficient detail for solid learning to occur. As students compare their marks to those awarded by the teacher and their peers they grasp the elements more quickly. A single slide of the mini mark sheet is available for teachers to talk through with the whole class in preparation for the activity.
Like all our material, the presentation is curriculum agnostic and can be adapted for any region.
