Digitally Speaking: How to Improve Student Presentations
Palmer, Erik
Stenhouse Publishers
All teachers at all grade levels and in all subject areas assign speaking activities--for example, read-alouds, book reports, class discussions, lab results, research presentations, and dialogues in a foreign language. Effective communication is an essential skill in modern society, and the Common Core State Standards place particular emphasis on teaching students to deliver messages well orally and through a range of media. In this Read & Watch book, Erik Palmer shows teachers how to turn almost any lesson into an opportunity for students to practice creating and performing a speech with the assistance of technology. Building on his previous book, "Well Spoken," Palmer previews Web sites and Internet tools that are easy for students and teachers to use and offer a variety of possible classroom applications. Tutorials show teachers exactly what to type, where to click, and how to use a recommended tool. Audio podcasts and videos reveal how students can rehearse in school and on their own time. Rubrics show teachers how to evaluate speaking according to the most important elements.
