IT’S YOUR CHOICE! You can choose from any of the speeches we have given in class this semester. The speech must be well planned with an introduction, body, and conclusion. The Final speech should be at least 3 minutes in length. A visual aid is not required, but extra credit will be applied if a visual aid is used during your speech. We will have a drawing to determine speech order. If any student is not ready to give his or her speech on the first day, he/she will perform it in the next class period for a late grade. TEN points will be deducted for each additional day. You will be given plenty of time in class to complete this assignment and it is your responsibility to use this time wisely. Also, you may work with a partner, but the time will be doubled and each person will have to deliver his/her own speech using the correct format.
The possible choices include: Buddy Speech, Biography, Show & Tell, Demonstration, Informative, Career, or Persuasive.
