Opening a Talk/Speech

Opening a Talk/Speech

(0)
Initially students work on commonly confused words. After this, students discuss the differences between a talk/speech. Then, they move to writing the opening of an informal talk from a past exam paper. Signposting is an important part of any introduction. Students should consider this in the planning stages of their talk. Allow at least two hours for this lesson. 45 minutes should be dedicated to writing the talk in full. This is similar to exam timings. Remember - all part b lessons have been bundled together in order to save you time and money. Download today!

Speech Writing

Speech Writing

4 Resources
This task is perfect way to introduce students to speech writing. Using different videos from large supermarkets, celebrities and students, you're sure to find the perfect inspiration for your class group. This set would also work well for a media studies module. Keep in mind that this bundle will also work well as part of a functional writing task for junior or senior students. I tend to use it with 6th years as an introduction to the language of persuasion. After this, we look at samples from reading comprehension past exam papers. Students then complete a series of Part B activities. Most importantly, more detailed lessons on the 100 mark essay have been included. As always, if you have a link to a speech, or know of a resource that works well with this lesson, then do not hesitate to share it with us by leaving a comment in the review section below.
