Speech 1 Lesson Plans for Teachers
Click image for full description.

Here is information on ways to earn various amounts of Speech credit, along with a sample syllabus.

These lesson plans are for teacher use.

These lesson plans cover a fifteen-week format (with a choice of two-hour or one-hour classes). In the textbook there are also instructions for extending the learning for a thirty-week course.

Note:

Students need to bring their Speech 1 Student Workbooks to class each week because this will give them printed versions of the lessons, as well as evaluation cards. As teacher using the Speech 1 textbook, you will have received a download of evaluation cards that you may print up and distribute if you wish.

Also note:

The times given are suggestions. This is meant to be a fast-paced course, where you “leave them wanting more”. However, you will find that each group of students are different, so you will need to adjust the times. Take a breath, stay flexible. Aim for having fun!

One more note:

Don’t forget that 7Sisters offers a discount to co-ops and umbrella schools.

  1. This is so helpful! Looking through the curriculum and wondering how I stretch the classes to fill an hour-long class for the whole year. I see the activities that you do adjust and repeat, but it doesn’t seem like a full hour’s worth.

    • Kelly, the most important gift you can give your teens in this class is time to speak over and over. Give them practice in pairs and with the group each session. Have them present material from last class, if there is time, to experiment with new ideas or simply to get more used to presenting it in front of others. Have lots of laughter. One hour will fill up TOO quickly!
