Speech Challenge

We have been learning how to perform a speech. A good speech has many different features. A good speaker is clear with what they say, use lots of volume and is always well prepared. Some people like to use cue cards to help them, or even create presentations and posters to show their ideas. Some people like to use humor and some get people to make something. Speeches can be scary, but take a breath, slow down and let the audience enjoy.

Room 7 created speeches about how to do something, or to persuade people about something.
Here are some examples:
