Thing 6: The Teacher Guide

Well, I have been using the teacher guide to the RPC calculator a ton this semester. I love a lot of the mini-lessons or project guides that help with the question and gather portions of their speeches. As we move into the persuasive speech now, I am looking forward to using more of the "what's your angle" and "questioning strategies" as we approach the persuasive speech. I am looking to get students away from the standard persuasive speeches like "The wood bat is better than a metal bat" or "The death penalty is bad" and into speeches that are a little higher level thinking. I think these sheets will help out quite a bit!
