Fred Talks

Age Range 11-14 yrs
Schedule Wednesdays, Block 2, 12p- 1:15p
Description Do you like Ted Talks??? Students will learn public speaking skills and then use those skills to develop and present a Fred Talk (similar to Ted Talk but shorter and instructed by Mrs. Fredette) on a variety of general assigned topics. Students will be asked to present their talks to the class live. Later in the term, we may ask students to make a video talk at home to present to the class with support and class time to prepare. Some talks will require research for preparation.
Important Notes None.
Prerequisite Read, write, and be willing to give verbal presentations to the class.
Homework Students will be required to do some research and talk preparation at home.
Parents Parents can provide support at home as much as your child needs to prepare for a talk.
Material/Lab Fee None.
