Reflection: Classroom Setup Practicing our Presentations - Section 3: Independent Practice


In years past, I have not given students time to practice their presentations. My thinking was that their classmates would get bored seeing the same thing two days in a row.Therefore, I chose the small group option. Additionally, for students who are shy, having them practice in small groups first will help them ease into the larger audience. 

However, more importantly, I have been neglecting the fact that students need to practice public speaking just as much as they need to practice reading or writing. Children and adults alike have enormous fears of public speaking. I don't want my students to have that fear. I want to give them multiple opportunities to not only present, but to practice their presentations in front of an audience.
