Presentation Abstract: “Mini Speeches”
An activity that can be used across all levels and all ages. ‘Mini speeches’ give students ownership of the language, which helps build confidence to speak in front of people while at the same time, improving their vocabulary, grammar and writing skills. This presentation will show how mini speeches work and give some examples. I will focus mainly on elementary school and junior high school but will also give some other examples for older students. In the second part of my presentation I will share some other activities that have been successful in getting students to talk.
