Discovery Quest Speeches
The class will be given a choice of topics that will allow them to conductindependent research and practice public speaking. Students should use books, the Internet, magazines, and newspapers to learn about the topic. When presenting, students may use posters, pictures, or any visual aid item. They may also use index cards with an outline of their speech. However, it is very important that they DO NOT read word for word from the cards. The index cards should be used strictly as a guide.
Students will be drawn randomly starting on the DUE date to give their speech until everyone has had a turn. All students must be prepared by the DUE date.
