December 9

Wax Museum

This week we practice reciting our speeches. Though the speeches do not need to be entirely memorized, knowing the speech inside and out, helps with the overall effect. Notecards are fine, but practicing each day is the best way to prepare.

Speeches should be 1-3 minutes.


Students received scoring guidelines for all components of the project.

Posters are completed at home. See guidelines below.
