Minnesota State Dept. of Children, Families, and Learning, St. Paul.
Developed by classroom teachers during the development phase of Minnesota's Graduation Standards, this performance package is made up of locally designed assignments that, taken together, show whether a student has learned and can apply the knowledge and skills related to constructing and delivering speeches in the English language for a variety of purposes and audiences. It begins with reference to the particular content standard addressed in the package, the educational level of the package (high school), and a summary statement of the content standard. It then describes the task associated with the student performances: construct and deliver three public speaking presentations--each presentation must be developed for a different purpose and audience. It then offers specific statements from the standard regarding what students should know and should do, the products, task description, special notes, and feedback checklists for the task enumerated in the package.
