EPS3OU1L5: Informal Speaking and My Generation cont'd

September 24, 2014:

Today we presented our 5 pics (in groups) for who speaks for our generation. Hopefully these presentations have inspired you to think about people who have contributed to making our world a better place.

We watched two different speeches by young adults who are making their mark. Both spoke to the UN in very different circumstances. We considered the impact that our voices can have on public discourse and strategies used to engage audiences.

Students will begin to consider one speech that has made an impact on their lives. They will work on analysing this speech next class.

Homework: due Sept 25

Bring in the FULL TEXT of a speech that has had an impact on you. Be prepared to analyse it next class.
