We often witness the common arguments between mother and daughter, where Mother asks daughter to start cooking and help her in doing home chores as it’ll help you in future, and you won’t need to depend on someone ... blah blah blah ... This is called the motivational speech as mother is trying to motivate her daughter to participate in home activities Anyhow, we can say that everyone is a motivational speaker him/herself as they try motivating the listener to persuade on their point. In my view, in order to motivate someone, speaker ought to use the power of words, s/he should know how to convince other as good speakers are well aware of those particular tricks and techniques that persuade other regarding the topic they need to discuss. There can be various topics on which you might be asked to deliver a motivational speech be it finance topic, education, health, social, or controversial issue. A decent motivational discourse requires satisfactory time and planning to empower the speaker to be calm and to manage issues that may emerge amid the introduction. In this article, I’ll guide you how to become a motivational speaker? The very first thing before starting your speech is to hook your audience. 1. Hook Your Audience’s Attention You need to get the audience into action in the first 10 minutes of your speech. How to do it well? Hold a Prop – When you hold any prop before starting your speech, it puts your audience in confusion what you’re going to do with that object? This is the most critical step to capture your audience attention, as the first ten minutes of every speech are important to catch audience attention towards you to start your speech. Show Humor – Another thing that can help you fascinate your audience while starting your speech is humor. The humorous skill can either by utilized by cracking jokes, or start with something funny that not only make them laugh, but also arouse interest in them to listen to the entire speech.

The basic tactics to hook your audience includes the use of props, taking them into action, and ask thought-provoking questions to engage them in the first 10 minutes. 2. Commit Yourself On The Subject For sake of becoming a good motivational speaker, focus on the subject choice. This can be achieved by keep adhering to the outline. The introduction part should inform the audience who you are while the body should give an insight on the subject. Doing this will broaden your scope and keep the speech from looking like it’ all about you, rather making it be a great gift for you.

The World News Crossword (July 2nd, 2017)

The World News Crossword (July 2nd, 2017)

This eleven-page packet of crosswords begins with a crossword dedicated to last week's world news and the events behind the news. There are several other crosswords that can be used at any time to support lessons or to use in emergencies, or as homework language activities (or in staff meetings). I've found crosswords work well as small group activities, especially the world news crossword, because it generates positive discussions about the world events. Now here's the thing... I know they're good because my students INSIST on getting all the answers and they chatter for the rest of the day about the news events. India's complicated tax system is being replaced by a goods and services tax. That's boring, but the world shortage of a special antibiotic isn't boring. It's potentially very serious. And so is drug-resistance. New Zealand's customs impounded. shipment of Weetabix, possibly because the British Lions beat the All Blacks. But Emirates Team New Zealand won the America's Cup. An Australian boy was flown almost 1000 km because of an accident with fireworks and an eye injury - not the best way fro him to celebrate Northern Territory Day. 60% of British people want to retain EU citizenship and 75% of the world don't have confidence in the US president's leadership skills (and yes, I know, that means 25% do). A study has found that a commercially produced pesticide has a significant harmful effect on bees. The chemical company thinks more research is needed. A study found that immigrant parakeets are liked by the UK public but that they are causing harm. (Guess what? The study's lead researcher was Mr Parrot. Really!!) And yes, the answers are included. There are some crosswords about landmarks or special places in the world... Uluru, The Eiffel Tower, Stonehenge, The Grand Canyon, Banff National Park, The Victoria Falls... and maybe these puzzles will get the students using their smartphones with an atlas or map rather than WhatsApp or FB. There are some Maps crosswords taken from a KS3 Geography booklet that's also available on TES, and a crossword about Climate Change - what causes it, what are the effects, and what can we do about it? So... a crossword all about last week's news and a few other very handy resources to have in your pocket (it's all PDF so you can download it to a USB drive)...

This week there are THREE BONUS puzzles that can be saved to a USB drive and stuffed into your pocket ready to be used at a moment's notice. Perfect for emergencies. The World News Crossword prompts students to discuss news events around the world. Brexit. Qatar. The White House. Climate change. The Middle East. The Great Barrier Reef. And maybe they'll ask where Sichuan is. Or where exactly is North Korea. Or perhaps they'll ask why - why is it a big deal that a small rural New Zealand newspaper publish the names of drunk drivers? Or that French bus drivers who aren't allowed to wear shorts chose to wear skirts? And then a group of UK school kids did the same - and how did these stories relate to climate change? The News puzzle can be used with young or old students, individually or in small groups, in class or for homework.
