Student Feedback to Peer Speeches

Student Feedback to Speeches

Planning Speech Presentation for Efficient Student Feedback

(See variety of feedback forms below)

To help student focus on various aspects of public speaking by classmates, for each round of speeches, I ask students to complete one section of our speech check list each day they are not speaking.

Once the assignment is given, each student signs up on the class wiki to present in a panel that that we designate with a color. On day of presentation, students sign up for speaker order.  Allowing students to sign up ahead of time acknowledges their busy lives. High school students know their academic, arts, athletics, and work schedules and when they can be better prepared to present their speeches. They know a class of 15 plus students do not present speeches on a single day, even when on block schedules! They appreciate having have a choice.

Signing up ahead of time, frees students to be a more attentive audience; they don’t have to wonder if they’ll be called up during the period. To maintain a level of fairness, however, all drafts are due on the same day. The final written version (usually a sentence outline with bibliography)  is due the evening before the students are scheduled to speak in class. They turn in this written assignment in on-line.

Those not scheduled to speak are responsible for providing peer feedback using the class check list. (1 equals low, 5 equals high) Students are asked to include one commendation and one recommendation. One student each day is recruited to record stop and start times for student speakers.
