I emailed everyone comments on their Introductory Speeches. I also let you know how many (+) grades your peers gave you. Everyone got a few (+) grades all the way up to 14-15 (+) grades. Well done everyone. Everything else was basically a check-mark grade. See participation scale for more details.
Special kudos go out to folks who got named for having the ‘best speech in class.’ I will announce those in class tomorrow (like a mini-Academy-Awards for best Introductory Speech!)
Try to have your Declamation Speech chosen by Friday-ish this week. Or at least be narrowing it down to a few choices. You will need to send me a link to the speech as well as a transcript (as either a Word or Google document). EVEN IF YOU HAVEN’T CHOSEN YET, email me by Friday so I know where you are at.
Keep working on “To Be or Not To Be” – we will be reciting those for a grade next week in class. Those of you with a flair for the dramatic are more than welcome to accentuate your performance with music, special effects, costumes, etc.
