ELA: Directions for Speech Due Today

This is a practice speech...not the final speech.

  1. So...you did a quick research job someone from history, right? You have notes, right? 
  2. Type in a size 12-14 font. On a Google Doc. Title it “History’s Heroes” and send it to Mrs. Leighton this morning (jleighton@hancockgrammar.org). Type a speech on ONE of your historical figures. An expository speech. Doesn’t have to be terribly long. Maybe 2-3 paragraphs. It’s just another practice opportunity to practice your speaking and listeningskills. Same classmate groups as last time. Your mission, should you accept, is to present what you know about this historical hero AND make it interesting. No pressure. But there’s a catch: Begin your speech with a hook.  Try one of these strategies:
Quote.
“What If” Scenario. 

“Imagine” Scenario. 
A Question. ...   or
Silence. ...
