      An “Extra, Extra!!” is an oral presentation. You are going to teach something that is interesting to you.  You will collect information related to your topic, organize it, write about it, create an artifact and teach others.


      Here’s what you should have ready when you present.


      Written report- This may be written by you, typed on the computer or you may ask someone to write down what you tell him or her. The report should be written in your own words, not copied from other sources. Turn in your report before you begin presenting.

       

      Artifact- This creation should show something about your topic. It can be a poster, diorama, mural, photo display, scrapbook, model, power point (this is NOT the same as your written report) or a handout. You can be as creative as you wish. 

       

      Oral report- This should be informative and well rehearsed. As you rehearse, think about these things: eye contact with the audience, loud and clear voice, good posture, appropriate length (5-15 min) and the presentation should be given from note cards, picture prompts or memory (not word-for-word from paper).

      Answer questions at the end of your “Extra, Extra!!”



      TO PARENTS:


      Don’t panic!!!  This really is fun for your child and while they are having fun they will be gaining valuable skills in reading, writing, research, planning, problem solving, self-discipline, and presentation.


      Offer your child support, but allow them to make their own choices on the topic and the presentation. The work should be their own.
