No ESL textbooks here, but a lot in the sciences. Would be worth keeping an eye on, or could come in handy for ESP, perhaps.

If you need a rubric, or need ideas of what to include on a rubric and how it could be formatted, you will find many examples at this university site.  I was surprised to see rubrics for mind maps and PowerPoint presentations as well as for elementary and middle school research topics.  There is a lot here to look at.

60 Things Students Can Create To Demonstrate What They Know - TeachThought | Education | Scoop.it
Nowadays, many educators use the same methods over and over again in their lessons for students to express themselves and demonstrate their new knowledge. Today’s students want to express themselves in a variety of different ways. They want their academic work to be relevant, engaging and fun.

Below is a diverse list adapted from resources found at fortheteachers.org of potential student products or activities learners can use to demonstrate their mastery of lesson content. The list also offers several digital tools for students to consider using in a technology-enriched learning environment.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, October 11, 12:19 PM

Presentations are challenging, and for Introverts, especially so. Here's a terrific article just for Introverts about the steps to take to deliver a winning presentation -- especially when you are nervous.

 

Many of these tips apply to anyone. So all you Extraverts out there -- read this post too!

 

This review was written by Karen Dietz for her curated content on business storytelling at www.scoop.it/t/just-story-it. Follow her on Twitter @kdietz

Lisa Evans 's curator insight, November 6, 7:23 AM
As a fellow introvert and a professional speaker I found this interesting and I could relate to much of it, particularly when I was new on my public speaking journey. However, I disagree with the point Hannah makes about the energy the speaker picks up from the audience. She says " Extrovert presenters get their energy from their audience – remember they thrive on that kind of stimulation – but that’s really overwhelming for an introvert".  

Regardless of your style introvert or extravert, to be an effective speaker you must be in tune with your audience. That includes reading theri cues, watching their body language and using their energy as instant feedback.  I have never found this to be overwhelming but all part of being in the audience-centred zone that is required of me to make a meanigful connection.
