30- Second Speech
What is it?
Students are given new information (from reading, video clip, etc.) and they need time to make sense of this new content. The teacher poses a question to the class and asks them to plan a 30 second speech. Students jot down their thoughts or just quietly examine their thinking. Students are then paired up and each person gives their 30 second speech to their partner.
