Integrate public speaking with research and technology skills. An inquiry-based approach is used to formulate and investigate a question. The topic is researched and facts are organized in a bulleted list and table. To prepare for public speaking students follow instructions to write a set of notes that accompany each slide. Upon completion, findings are communicated to an audience in an oral presentation. Additional teaching ideas explain how to collaborate with a partner, insert a video, create a graphic organizer, or animate text.
