This demonstration speech (also known as a “how-to” speech) is a great way to get 4th-7th grade students comfortable speaking in front of a group and gives them the opportunity to incorporate a technology-based visual aid into their presentation. This project includes three parts: an outline, speech, and slideshow presentation. All three parts are graded on a single rubric. Supporting materials such as a student guidelines page, slideshow presentation tips, and notes on using transitional words and phrases are included. If you do not have the resources or time to allow students to make a slideshow, they may bring a visual aid to reference during the presentation. You may also allow them to actually do or demonstrate the activity during their presentation. Modify the requirements of this speech however you’d like (based on time constraints, available resources, and the needs of your students). Whether or not students may use their outline, a few note cards, or simply rely on the slides during the speech is at your discretion.
