Teaching Tips Using an Impromptu Speech Jar

June 13, 2017

Hey teachers everywhere! Mr. Hauger here with a great idea for classroom interactions with your students. Print and cut a list of your favorite journal or speech prompts and put them into a glass jar, or any container you have in the room. Choose a student at random, or take volunteers and have them draw a topic and speak for one minute. If the class appreciates the speech, they snap, and if the majority of students snap, the speaker has been successful. You can modify this public speech activity in many ways, but its a winner in my classroom, and I thought you might appreciate the idea!
