Join us for the Plain English Speaking Award final on the 28th of June.
The Plain English Speaking Award Final will showcase senior secondary level students discussing issues of contemporary significance. The finalists will deliver a Prepared Speech on a topic of their own choice and an Impromptu Speech on a topic provided by an adjudicator. Students will learn about how adjudicators judge speeches and will have a chance to have a go themselves before asking questions about the decisions made during the final.
To see a list of the finalists names and their schools please visit the Arts Unit website. http://artsunit.nsw.edu.au/speaking-competitions/public-speaking/plain-english-speaking-award
These live streamed events showcase the excellence of NSW school students and make a great teaching resource.

This curriculum-linked workshop will provide a unique opportunity for students to develop their ability to understand what makes a good speech. It will also enhance their ability to deliver considered opinions on an issue that concerns them and to respond in a short period of time to a broad topic in a meaningful fashion.
This workshop addresses the following curriculum outcomes:
5.1 Express considered points of view in rehearsed and impromptu speeches
8.2 Expressing complex ideas for a range of audiences
9.2 Using individual processes to generate, clarify, organise, refine and present ideas
