I have a few public speaking things on at the moment so I got this out of my cupboard. Hidden away amongst my many resources this is a little gem. For anyone who has not discovered Institute for Excellence Writing their resources are well worth the investment. I have used many of their resources for teaching and I used the university essay writing DVD set when I first started my studies. Fantastic teaching and writing tools, and this one is also brilliant.
It is aimed at students grades 6-12 (my country that is yr 7-13). What I really like is the student examples. These speeches are extremely well presented and gives other children/young adults a feel for public speaking. Included is a downloadable e-book which includes handouts, lesson plans and evaluation forms taking much of the prep work out of lesson planning.
I for one, like most of the products from this company and I tick the boxes for this disc set too. Have a read of the description it explains much of what is included on the discs.
Targeting students in grades 6-12 and showing actual footage of students' speeches, this fast paced public speaking course is presented on four DVD's with downloadable e-book including handouts for "trainees." Lesson plans and evaluation forms are provided for a facilitator.
