- The student will watch and critique both an informative and a persuasive speech
TEKS: 130.99: 10E: ii, iii, iv, v
(Week of 4/27-5/1)
Using a computer or phone, watch the following short, informative speech. Click on the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StPSgqwCnVk. The speech is only five-and-a-half minutes long, so it won’t take you very long to view it. Once finished, create a Google Doc and write (2) paragraphs. In the first paragraph, discuss the GOOD things you saw the speaker do (volume, vocal variety, eye contact, use of notecards, conversationalism, belief in his topic, organization, dress, etc.). In the 2nd paragraph, discuss things that you think would make his speech stronger.
This entire assignment (including BOTH paragraphs) does not need to be any longer than half a page…TOTAL. Once it’s finished, email the assignment to [email protected]. If you have no WiFi available, type or write it out, then take a picture of it with a phone, and email that to me. This is NOT a difficult assignment and should take you no longer than 15-20 minutes…TOPS….to complete. So, please take care of business.
(Week of 5/4-5/8)
Just as you did for last week’s assignment, you’ll be watching and critiquing a speech. The only difference is that this week, it is a persuasive speech, rather than an informative one. The link for this video is just a point and a click away. Go to
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tk_7Hd3rDTk. Once you’ve watched the speech, the assignment is exactly the same as last week. Write out (2) paragraphs. Talk about the good things you observed in the first paragraph, and, then, discuss the areas where you think the speaker could improve in the second one. Again, NO MORE than half a page….TOTAL… for BOTH paragraphs. Once you have this on a Google Doc (or paper) take a photo with a phone and email that to me. If you DO have WiFi, I would much prefer that you email the document to me. My email address is [email protected].
