Speaking Activities for the Advanced College-Bound Student.
Henderson, Don
Three activities for developing speaking skills of advanced English as second language students are presented. Impromptu speaking, extemporaneous speaking, and debate activities are designed to train students to organize concepts, develop spontaneous oral skills, and enhance confidence and clarity of thought. Impromptu speaking develops spontaneous thinking and clear organizational ability while improving confidence and laying the basis for the more complex speaking activities. Extemporaneous speaking develops detailed organizational patterns, transition, subordination, and focusing of topic sentences. Debate uses a three-person team structure to develop logical thinking, organization, argumentation, and reasoning. The objective of these activities is to promote the ability to think critically in English and transfer this thought process quickly into concise spoken English. Sample preparation sheets and critique forms are appended. (RW)
