Activating Students Via Speeches: An interactive approach
Osaka International University, Japan
Speeches in language classes are used for several reasons. They allow
students to express opinions to their peers while giving pupils a focused
opportunity to openly communicate about a subject of their choice.
This paper will illustrate a framework for conducting speeches which
involves ALL students, both those giving and listening to speeches. The
presenter will discuss several stages of the speech process, these include:
preparation, correcting mistakes, peer-student evaluation procedures on
a structured Evaluation Card, and finally teacher assessment. This presentation
will show how to encourage students to speak from their hearts from the
preparatory stages to presentations.
