A Speech Is Not an Essay

A Speech Is Not an Essay | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
Put the paper down.

 

"Speeches and essays are of the same genus, but not the same species. Each necessitates its own craft and structure. If you’re a great writer, don’t assume it will translate immediately to the spoken word. A speech is not an essay on its hind legs, and great speech writers and public speakers adapt accordingly."

Sharrock's insight:

These are some important points of distinctions of speeches and presentations from essays. This is something we educators might dismiss as obvious, until we assign a presentation as an alternative option to an essay in school whether the school is elementary, secondary, or post-secondary. A teacher could read this as a guide for discussion, but could also assign the reading to secondary school students (high school, college) as a prompt for producing a Venn Diagram or some other graphic organizer establishing comparisons of the two products. It might be helpful to also develop a rubric with the class for each product. You might complement this activity with one or two TEDx videos of presentations. Depending on the student Internet access profile of the school, students might watch these videos at home as homework and make some notes about technical aspects of the video (based on the points made in this article). These notes could be submitted online in Google Forms (teacher created) or some other application's forms. In this way, technology is involved in different ways while not becoming a distraction by being unwieldy. Otherwise, if students do not have broadband Internet access, video viewing might be completed in class, perhaps with guided viewing (similar to guided reading), and the assignment could be submitted with school-provided laptop carts, iPads, or via traditional  pen and paper response. The teacher might also consider the use of a "bad" or "less than great" example of a presentation which might be found on Youtube.

109 Common Core Resources For Teachers By Category

 

The transition to the Common Core Standards is likely the single most significant change in the last 10 years in American public education.

While the English-Language Arts and Math haven’t changed, what the standards say about those content areas–and their relative complexity and rigor–are indeed different.

In a recent survey, you let us know you wanted more Common Core resources and support, so we’re going to ramp up our Common Core resources over the summer of 2013, including this list of various Common Core resources, separated by content area.

Create Stopmotion and Timelapse Video with These Three Free Tools

Create Stopmotion and Timelapse Video with These Three Free Tools | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

Creating stopmotion and timelapse videos can be a good way for students to tell a story that they have developed.

 

Stopmotion and timelapse videos can also be helpful when teachers are trying to help students see how a lengthy process like osmosis works.

 

While good stopmotion and timelapse videos can take a long time to create, there are some tools that can make the process a little easier.

 

Here are three stopmotion video creation tools that are worth trying.

Reshelle Johnson's curator insight, September 1, 2014 11:36 AM

I enjoyed making instructional videos for my students and letting them make them as well.  This article covers why we should not be hung up on having a polished video because shorter, less formal videos can be more effective.  I used the app Explain Everything on my iPad to record lessons, but there are some who say that having the teacher in the video is more effective.  I wasn't ready for that.

I liked this video because it revised the key concepts of learning theories.  It also highlighted my journey so far of how I have learnt from the internet.  Up till this course, I was very much learning cardiology from textbooks and now I have discovered the rich resources available from the internet.

A useful video tutorial here, just over 16 minutes long. It runs through the basics of using Google drive and how you can use it to collaborate with others. It also touches on Google Hangout.

 

I use Google Drive with my students as a writing space because I teach English via Skype. It suits our needs perfectly. Students create several folders e.g. some are homework spaces; collaborative areas such as wikis; creative writing pages and as a virtual space that we can jump into during the lesson to work on activities. It works for us. As a teacher I can dip into shared spaces at any time and guide and support learning which is a real advantage.

flea palmer's curator insight, August 30, 2013 6:56 AM

This is a really thorough tutorial and very timely as I'm currently exploring using Google Drive with students. Our dispersed team of Learning Technologists already use it for collaboration but there is not much use as yet by our academics and students. The ability to be able to integrate Drive with Google Hangouts is really powerful and has the potential to be a great tool for supporting Distance Learning.
