Good morning/afternoon.

You should work on practicing and putting finishing touches on your Demonstration Speeches today. We will begin presentations TOMORROW. The speaking order is below.

Make sure your Visuals are in the folder in Google Classroom. Remember to PRINT OUT YOUR SPEECHES BEFORE COMING TO CLASS. 

You will NOT be able to print anything tomorrow during class. If you need to print before class, you will need to use the Media Center and have the printed copy of the speech (or note cards) with you when you come to class.

Use class time today to make any changes or additions, and PRACTICE for time today. Speeches need to be 4-5  minutes long. You can go out into the hall to practice with a partner as long as you stay on task and do it quietly.

We need to get started right away tomorrow, so you should come ready to speak and listen. We will begin immediately after the bell rings.

Email me if you have any questions about your speeches.

Good morning! Hope you enjoyed your cold day off.

Grades are updated on Synergy. I’m going to conference with you individually over the next couple of days to look at what you did well in your Partner Introduction and what you need to work on for future speeches.

Today you should have your Storytelling Diagram finished. You should begin writing out your speech using the Storytelling Draft in Google Classroom.

The First Draft of your Storytelling Speech will be due on Monday, Feb. 4th. 

Friday, Jan. 18, 2019

We will begin giving speeches today! Below is the list of speakers in order. Remember that you should always be prepared to speak on the first day of speeches, even if you are farther down the list, because if someone is absent, we will continue down the list to the next speaker.

Audience Members: Remember that you are also being evaluated on your behavior as an audience member. This may affect your grade.

We should be looking at the speaker (not on our phones or on the computer or doing homework) and giving good reactions (head nods, etc.). Please also be sure to stay quiet during speeches, so we don’t distract the speakers.

We will get through as many speeches as we can today, and we will finish up on Tuesday (Monday is Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, so there’s no school).
