Abstract Term Speech Assignment

Critical Thinking and Speaking

We always are looking for lessons to teach and assess skills in ways that students can incorporate newly acquired knowledge and practice fledgling skills.  This assignment to write a speech about an abstract term is one I've use to introduce students to a variety of kinds of support once can use to explain, expand and explore a topic.  Versions of this assignment invite students to put into practice what they've learned and to share their concrete personal perspective on an abstract term.
It will not be difficult to adapt this assignment to a definiton essay that remains only a written product rather than a classroom performance.  You also could include a media element in which students add music, slides with graphics, pictures and font specially selected to reinforce the ideas of their essay or speech.  Note there also is a rubric for evaluating student progress. Abstract Term Speech.

  1. I enjoy you because of each of your work on this blog. Debby takes pleasure in getting into investigation and it’s really obvious why. I learn all about the lively ways you create informative solutions via the website and in addition strongly encourage participation from other people on the subject matter plus my daughter has been learning a great deal. Take pleasure in the rest of the year. You’re performing a very good job.
