 Story image 1_0

These first few weeks of school, 8th graders in Ms. Ruby's class have been working on writing an essay and preparing a speech to give to their peers. The topic of their essay's and speech was "What Makes Me, Me". Students were to pick something that made them unique, a character trait, talent, unusual background. Then they were to write about their uniqueness and share with the class. 

It was a requirement that students have some sort of visual aid for their 3-5 minute speech. The visual aid could be a picture, sports equipment, instrument, animal, etc. The students enjoyed gaining new insight about their peers while learning to write and deliver a speech.
