Newspapers

This TED video explains how our body language communicates not only to others, but also to our selves. We learned how to prepare our body—how to prepare our self—to handle stressful situations like giving a newspaper speech or, later in your lives, preparing for your first job interview. We also saw parts of this video about how our body communicates to others. Here is your newspaper speech assignment and how you will be marked, along with some examples of poster boards for those who would like to make a poster instead of a Google Slide. In both cases, you need to make use of visual information—pictures—to support the ideas that you share with your audience by referring to them from time to time during your speech. The article you choose does not have to be recent, but it does have to be a totally new article, not one you have done either in November or March. In the end, just be sure to choose an article about something that interests you, and preferably one that no one else has done either. All assignment details remain the same. Looking forward to hearing your speech on Wednesday 5th June in the learning commons. This will be your last speech of the year. I have cue cards if you wish to use them (highly recommended, so you can face the audience when you talk). All work for your newspaper presentation on June 5th will be done at home.

Age-and-content-appropriate, Teaching Kids News is an excellent place to start.
