Speaking Day

posted Jan 8, 2014, 11:20 AM by Theresa Stangel
Students in grades 7-11 participated in Speaking Day on December 5th. Students were responsible for writing, memorizing, and presenting a speech to a panel of judges (teacher, community members, and senior students). The students’ speeches were evaluated based on the Oregon State Speaking Standards, which are the guidelines that students are evaluated against for their Senior Capstone Projects. 

Speaking Day is done to prepare students for their Senior Capstone Project Presentations. Speeches are also a requirement in Language Arts, so this project is integrated into the English curriculum. The following is a list of grades and speech topic requirements:

-Grades 7, 8, and 9: informational speech on a topic of their choice

-10th: persuasive on either an Agriculture or Social Science topic

-11th: Senior Capstone Project Proposal
