Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Debate Day 1 - Section 3: Student Debates


One of the moments in which I knew my students were ready for the debate was when Truth (in the video) stated, "I don't think being in front of the class is a big deal, I got over it after doing the Prezi" (a text structures presentation we did as a class). That made me feel really good as a teacher, because I want to ensure my students are not traumatized by bad public speaking experiences! 

Although, we have a lot more to work on as speakers, starting with being comfortable is a great place to start!
