Group check-in: Review each other's argument outlines...
Independent work today: develop 2-minute speech
You will work independently to develop your 2-minute argument for your assigned role within the team. You can get feedback from team members and from Mrs. Stewart but please try to work quietly as to not disturb other groups (or give away details about your argument).
Exit Ticket: Peer Feedback (again!)
Get someone else within your team to look at what you have developed for your 2-minute speech. Get feedback and give feedback to someone within your team. Use the comments function.
HW: Finish your 2-minute speech + rehearse
Finish writing your speech.
Be sure you are not speaking too fast that your audience cannot follow your argument. If it is too fast, you'll need to revise and shorten your speech. Don't try to use every piece of evidence or every point you could make-- use your STRONGEST evidence, strongest ideas, strongest analysis and insights.
Practice speaking so that you are able to look up from your speech and make eye contact.
Print your speech out or write it on note cards so that you have it with you in case you get nervous. You want to avoid reading it word-for-word the whole time (because then you have no engagement with your audience) but be sure you have it with you in case you get nervous.
This will be timed and you will be cut off from speaking at the 2-minute time limit.
The Formative Debate will begin at the start of next class.
