Mini Speeches are designed to give students the opportunity to practice their speaking skills without having an “audience”. Please see the instructions below:
Step 1: Choose a current news report (within the last week) to report on for your mini speech. Look on news websites, local newspapers, etc. for ideas.
Step 2: Create a short speech to outline the news report and provide why the audience needs to know about this event? Utilize description with your answers. Don’t forget structure (intro, body, conclusion). Make sure to verbally cite your news source.
Step 3. Create a short video (no more than 2 minutes) with you presenting your tribute. A visual aid is NOT required.
Step 4. Post this video. Please view the technical speech requirements below about posting videos.
