Our Public Speaking lesson plan introduces students to the vital skill of public speaking. Starting the process of identifying information to share and sharing it in an engaging manner early serves our students well. It provides practice of a skill they will continually draw upon, as well as laying a foundation that will hold up as demands of preparing and presenting information grow throughout their school career. In this lesson, students are asked to choose a topic and go step-by-step to research their topic and create a presentation that they will then present to the class.
At the end of the lesson, students will have created a presentation with oral and visual components and present information to peers and teachers in a public speaking format.
