Self-Evaluation and Pre-Speech Planning: A Strategy for Sharing Responsibility for Progress in the Speech Class.
Desjardins, Linda A.
Speech class teachers can implement a pre- and post-speech strategy, using pre-speech and self-evaluation forms, to help students become active in directing their own progress, and acknowledge their own accomplishments. Every speech is tape-recorded in class. Students listen to their speeches later and fill in the self-evaluation form, which asks them to identify strengths and note improvements, list specific areas in which they would like to improve, and evaluate speech content. The pre-speech plan is submitted on the date of the next speech. In it, students record their specific speech purpose in a sentence, list the main points they will cover, and identify a specific goal for improvement. While this procedure is geared for auditory assessments, it can easily be used with videotape and include not only oral improvement, but physical improvement as well. (Two figures are included.) (SR)
