Exceeding the Common Core Speaking Standards: Improving the Oral Communication of All Students

Although public speaking is likely the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of “speaking skills,” Erik Palmer explains that the Common Core State Standards place importance on speaking effectively in a variety of scenarios, both formal and informal. He notes that students need to have broadly applicable oral communication skills. Palmer provides frameworks to boost students’ abilities in two distinct speaking skill sets: building the presentation and performing the presentation. Watch this webinar to learn how to help your students become more flexible and effective speakers, as well as how to modify your delivery and instruction to engage and reach your students.
