If you want to use TEDTalks in your classroom but aren’t sure how to make them work, help has arrived!
Whenever I teach public speaking, I use TEDTalk curator Chris Anderson’s article, “How to Give a Killer Presentation,” and follow up with a viewing of the Richard Turere speech discussed in the article. Click here for the questions I use with Anderson’s article. (Tip: Be sure to turn on the closed captioning option when viewing Turere’s speech.)
Tell me, which TEDTalks work best in your classes? Scroll down to the “Leave a Reply” box and let your fellow teachers know which ones you love. What texts or units do you pair them with? Extra credit if you include the link!
Teach on, everyone.
