Public Speaking & Writing by Michael (Q3)


  1. The class will review sentence structure and improving essay writing prose. Students will speak about their goals for the rest of their elementary school careers and what they are expecting from middle school. Students' identities, objectives, and accomplishments will be shared together with the class, commencing Q3. Students will engage in two speaking exercises in class: 1) Discuss an event in your life that had unexpected outcome and 2) Why I feel tremendous gratitude to my parents.
  2. "The Rocking Horse Winner," by D. H. Lawrence Hester is an unhappy woman who feels her family does not have enough money. Her son Paul wins a large sum on a bet, but dies after falling off of his rocking-horse. The class will engage in sharing personal experiences that were seemingly good on the surface, but ultimately resulted in poor outcomes. Students engage in a speaking exercise called "Boring or Not Boring," where they recount their past week's experiences and are evaluated by their peers on 3 criteria: speaking tone, eye contact, and whether the presentation was "boring" or "not boring." Presentations rated as "boring," are elaborated upon and students are provided feedback as to how they may improve. Later, students engage in a reading exercise with the instructor where they carefully analyze a passage. Students are asked about the passage's details and why they are significant, the author's writing techniques and tone, interactions between characters of the story, and vocabulary words. The instructor goes into great depth into each of these areas and students learn professional reading techniques that will carry over into their writing assignments. 
  3. "The Necklace," by Guy de Maupassant This story is famous for its twist ending that is simultaneously ironic and satirical. The class's speeaking excercise will revolve around the criticality of not overextending one's resources. Students will learn about the elements of satire and irony and how to incorporate them into their writing.
  4. "The Treasure in the Forest," By H. G. Wells Evans and Hooker are on a canoe approaching land. They trying to decipher a roughly drawn map they stole from a man after overhearing him talk about a treasure he had found and reburied. The class will discuss the consequences of greed and bad deeds. Students will be asked to provide examples from their experiences how chasing the wrong desires can lead to a poor outcome.
