We are Students in Ms. Sutton's Speech and Debate Class
We are in grades 9-12 at MKHS. This year we are taking Speech and Debate. We will be required to write four persuasive speeches in order to perform and record them in a similar format to the popular TED talks (ideas worth spreading). Our current task is to watch TED talks that pique our interests and evaluate each talk based on a list of criterion that make for effective persuasive writing and speaking.
We look forward to learning about speech writing and speech performance. We also look forward to learning about the elements of argument so that our TALKS are persuasive and effective.
Our work will be curiosity driven and research based!
