11th Grade Break H.W.

Salaam!

Firstly, I apologize for the delay, as I was unable to access my laptop to create this post. Secondly, you will not be writing your argumentative essay during this break. All you have to do is prepare your 5- minute presentation (speech).

Writing 

Use the following checklist to guide you in your writing:

  • I have included information, findings, and supporting evidence to support my claim.
  • I have included the most relevant evidence to support my claim.
  • I convey a clear and distinct perspective on the topic.
  • I have organized my information in a way that is logical and clear.
  • I use clear transitions and links between ideas to help my listeners follow the lines of reasoning.
  • I use a formal tone, appropriate to my purpose and audience.
  • I have considered and addressed the knowledge level of my audience.
  • I have considered and addressed the concerns and values of my audience.
  • I have considered and addressed the potential biases of my audience.

Visual Component

During this presentation you will need to use visuals to further strengthen your argument. I will leave that up to you to decide whether you want to create a :

  • Powerpoint
  • Video
  • Prezi Presentation 

Remember, this is a presentation so you don’t want to just read off of a paper for five minutes straight. Thus, consider creating notecards for yourself of the major points or whatever it is you may find helpful. Also, I will be timing your presentation, you will not be allowed to exceed 5 minutes.

Any comments, questions, or concerns, feel free to shoot me an email btisam.hassan@alnoornyc.org! 

P.S. Looking foward to hearing all of your speeches!

-Sr. Ibtisam
