1. Students, remember to memorize your speeches and be clear on how I will be grading you. I will be using the same rubric that your partner utilized to score you.
*Practice in front of your mirror and focus on not relying too heavily on your index cards. *If you are to move, make sure that your movement has a clear purpose, otherwise it will come across as distracting.
Be prepared for your speeches on Thursday, November 2nd.
I wish you all the best of luck.
