About the Course
Use this video collection to supplement lesson plans dedicated to the Common Core Standards for speaking and listening in grades 9-10. Lessons demonstrate ways to evaluate a source's credibility, discern a speaker's motivations, and adapt one's own speech according to context and purpose. Students also learn how to synthesize diverse sources of information and incorporate technology into spoken presentations.
Teachers may assign these tutorials to be viewed as homework or show them in class to complement a planned lecture. The lessons can support instruction throughout the year in conjunction with varying curricular units.
Participate in Collaborative Discussion: ELA.CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.9-10.1
Standard: Initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grades 9-10 topics, texts, and issues, building on others' ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
This chapter's lessons cover topics including the stages of group formation, types of communication, and technologies for group communication. Tutorials on group decision making and acknowledging diverse viewpoints help students learn how to effectively contribute to group discussions.
Consolidate and Evaluate Information: ELA.CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.9-10.2
Standard: Integrate multiple sources of information presented in diverse media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively, orally) evaluating the credibility and accuracy of each source.
These lessons highlight different ways information can be presented and why each is used. Instruction is also offered on how to spot discrepancies in different sources of information, as well as how to determine whether a source is credible.
Assess Speaker Motivations: ELA.CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.9-10.3
Standard: Evaluate a speaker's point of view, reasoning, and use of evidence and rhetoric, identifying any fallacious reasoning or exaggerated or distorted evidence.
Help students learn about different types of listening and how to listen both ethically and effectively. Lessons in this chapter address critical thinking, inclusive language, various kinds of reasoning (inductive, causal, etc.), and the components and purpose of rhetorical proof.
Present Information Effectively: ELA.CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.9-10.4
Standard: Present information, findings, and supporting evidence clearly, concisely, and logically such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, substance, and style are appropriate to purpose, audience, and task.
This chapter offers lessons to support effective formal speaking, covering such subjects as researching, attuning, and adapting to audience; understanding different types of speeches and when to use them; selecting and distilling a presentation topic; choosing appropriate supporting materials; and organizing the main and supporting ideas in a speech.
Use Digital Media to Support Presentations: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.9-10.5
Standard: Make strategic use of digital media (e.g., textual, graphical, audio, visual, and interactive elements) in presentations to enhance understanding of findings, reasoning, and evidence and to add interest.
View examples of digital media resources that can enhance the presentation of information. Video lessons discuss presentation software, distinctions between in-person and online speeches, and how to leverage technological resources to best benefit a presentation.
Adapt Speech According to Context: ELA.CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.9-10.6
Standard: Adapt speech to a variety of contexts and tasks, demonstrating command of formal English when indicated or appropriate. (See grades 9-10 Language standards 1 and 3 here for specific expectations.)
