  • 2. Introduction Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] The time has come. The power bug has bitten you, the political fever has consumed your soul. You have decided tor run for the position of leader of your country. This starts with your speech. Will you run with the inspiring passion of JFK, the brilliance of FDR, or the fear of Hitler. Will your speeches point outt the great and good you country has achieved, or will you see only the negative. The time has come for your speech. To choose how you wish to run for office, and to start the history books of you reign.
  • 3. The Task Student Page Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] At the end of this assignment, you should be better acquainted with great speakers of the past. You should be able to write and deliver a speech to the class confidently and powerfully.. I don’t expect you to be the next Martin Luther King Junior, but I do expect you to speak passionately. Remember that bravery is not the absence of fear but the overcoming of it. Have confidence in you words, but realize that you will be nervous, everyone will be. Deal with your nerves however you can, and realize that you will need to speak to groups your entire life. Title

        • Winston Churchill
        • FDR
        • JFK
        • Adolf Hitler
        • Maya Angelo
    • Then you will be looking online for the transcripts of speeches
    • Gather a few different speeches, and analyze them
      • Read through them, how would you read them
      • How does the speaker read them
      • Listen for the changes of voice, of pitch and tone, pauses and speed
      • Look for rhyme, meter, feet, and other poetic tools within the words
      • Mark your papers
    • 4. Find a topic you are interested in speaking about, something you are passionate about.
    • Research your topic, know what your talking about
      • When using the internet to research
        • Be skeptical of what you read
        • Stay away from .com websites
        • Double and triple check your information
    • 6. Plan your speech, are you going to argue for a point are you going to suggest change, are you calling for action.
    • Organize your point s however you feel necessary, I want a page of some kind of planning
    • Write your speech: write it, practice it, and rewrite it. Nobody ever got it right in one try. Writing is rewriting.
    • Give your speech to the class, turn in your work.
  • 5. Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] Category 1 2 3 4 Watching Speeches Unknown whether speeches were watched or not Speeches were watched but no notes were taken Speeches were watched and notes taken Speeches were watched, notes are thoughtful and critical Speech Transcripts No speech transcripts were viewed At least one transcript viewed and noted At least two transcripts but with minimal notes At least two transcripts with thoughtful notes Research No research Only one source used, or unreliable source At least two sources, but without documentation At least two websites with proper documentation Presentation None given Given Gave about topic interesting to student Clear presentation with attempts at professional tools Written Speech None handed in Speech with little or no thought Written and easily understood Written, easily understood, with attempts at tools
  • 6. Conclusion Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] Speeches can be powerful things. They can move entire nations into action and change the very face of the world. What would the U.S. be like without “ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” What would WW2 have been like if Adolf Hitler hadn’t been such a good speaker? How would the Civil Rights movement been different without a Dream. Speeches can be powerful, you just wrote your first. Everyone had to start somewhere, and when your time comes you will be able to change the world with your very words.
  • 7. Credits & References Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] Here are a couple of websites to get you started. Don’t feel obligated to use these, but make sure to keep track of the sites you use. I will need to see that actual research has been done, so a bibliography may be a good idea. YouTube- use this to watch speeches http://library.albany.edu/reference/speeches.html . This website offers transcripts of some speeches. It may not have the speaker you are interested in, but remember that there are an infinite number of ways to make a speech great.
  • 8. The Speech (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page A WebQuest for 10th Grade (English or Speech) Designed by Nick McCarty-Daniels [email_address] Based on a template from The WebQuest Page Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  • 9. Introduction (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This lesson came for a class in technology, to fulfill a requirement on creating a webquest. I created this particular assignment because of all the bad speech classes I have had to take, and to give myself something to work with, some other medium than books, that might interest students. This assignment is to get students looking at everything that goes into a speech. It is more than just a bunch of words on a page, and more than some handsome guy talking. The makings of a speech are poetic, and hopefully as we point this out to students they will gain a better appreciation of speeches. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  • 10. Learners (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This lesson has 10 th grade English in mind. Where they have already been introduced to public speaking, and must now learn to hone those skills, and use them to greater affect. Learners may want to know some world history. Who great speakers where, what they did, etc. They would want some instruction in poetry, rhythm, rhyme, alliteration, etc. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  • 11. Curriculum Standards (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page
    • Students will increase their knowledge of the poetry of speeches, how this poetry is created, what it does to a listener. Will learn the power of speeches, and begin to know how to write a speech.
    • English Standards Addressed
      • Students read and understand a variety of materials
      • Students write and speak for a variety of purposes and audiences
      • Students write and speak using conventional grammar, usage, sentence structure, punctuation, capitalization, and spelling
      • Students apply thinking skills to their reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing
      • Other areas of thought
    • Critical thinking
    • Creative production
    • Observation and categorization
    • Comparison
    Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  • 12. The Process (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page
    • See Student Process Section
    • Lesson can take as much or as little time as needed depending on the amount of Homework assigned
    • No real skill is needed to teach this. A good ear at listening to speeches and being able to point out significant details could be a good idea. And familiarity with the internet, speech writing, poetry, could all be helpful, if not strictly needed.
    • Variations
    • Use a TV instead of the internet to control what speeches are seen
    • Offer in class writing time to help the students create their speeches
    Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  • 13. Resources (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page
    • Some of the possible resources needed:
      • Computers with access to the internet (or TV to show speeches)
      • Time to allow students to present and research
    • Websites:
    • YouTube
    • Other video websites
    • One teacher should be enough, your job will become a spectator and to make sure students are on task.
    Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  • 14. Evaluation (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page To see if lesson was successful look at the written pages of their speech. Do they make an effort to include meter, rhyme, rhythm. Do they try to imitate great speakers or do they just throw words on a page. Read the speech out loud and see how it feels on your tongue, in your mouth. Also, listen to the student’s speech. Pay attention to same items listed above, but make sure students are invested. They should be passionate speeches, if not perfect. Check over sources, if nothing else, see if they used credible sources. See student evaluation sheet Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  • 15. Teacher Script (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page
    • Give students the assignment
    • Show the students a speech, or tell them how to access a speech
    • Show students elements within a speech (on an overhead)
    • Let students gather their speech transcripts and go through them
    • Give students an example of a speech (optional)
    • Let students give speech
    • Collect: Written speech, analyzed speech transcripts, notes from watching speeches.
    Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  • 16. Conclusion (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This lesson could be very valuable. It will allow you to break away from the traditional reading a book and testing on the reading, but remain in the English domain. This will show students that the tools of poetry go beyond poetry. Allow access into a medium overlooked, that people still need to be able to analyze. The teacher can work/lean towards another content area or a different area depending on where they find the need. Focusing students more on presidents, or world leaders. There is a lot that can be done with this lesson, and a lot of modifications can be used to make it fit your needs. I would be wary of assigning it all for Homework and expecting the students to finish on time and proficiently. But if only a little time can be given to this assignment, then it can be finished in 2-3 class periods. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
