Recipes for Effective Literacy Instruction


When you want students to deliver speeches, it's helpful for them to analyze good models.

Here are some handy Websites for analyzing and delivering speeches:

American Rhetoric-Top 100 Speeches--PS, it might be fun and useful for students to analyze the top 5 or 10 and figure out the criteria for what makes them great.

History.com Famous Speeches and Audio

Speeches--The Writing Center at UNC-Chapel Hill (offers guidance on how to write and deliver a speech)

This MiddleWeb post by Frank Baker shares info about how to teach students to analyze propaganda, and MindOverMedia is a great resource!

For rubrics to judge speeches, check out the Oral Fluency Rubrics page.

For how to run mock trials (or mini-mock trials), check out Teaching Civics.
