Reflection: High Expectations Finishing An Entire Draft of the Final Speech/Talk - Section 2: Introduction


There have been times when I’ve had students be so afraid of doing things that cause them stress that they choose to not do it at all. I always try to find ways of avoiding this and have 100% participation. Today students feel the proximity of the feared presentation. As I explain how I will help them time their speech/talk, students begin to express these fears saying that it is embarrassing. This is how I address these fears. I use a combination of humor and honesty, all for the sake of illustrating that the high expectation is absolutely acceptable for eleventh graders.
