Homework for October 11, 2018

Dear Intrepid Students, 😀

I’m sure you must be tired of having all HRMs today. But, you all remained enthusiastic throughout and completed the assigned tasks well. Today, we first saw a video about public speaking (Kiran Bedi) and then, brainstormed the criteria to be kept in mind while giving a speech. Then, you read a speech and tried to read it aloud, keeping the public etiquette in mind. Finally, you worked in groups to research the famous personalities and their beliefs and values, using the Big 6 research model.

Homework

  • Complete the Research (first 5 steps of Big 6) by tomorrow.
  • Complete the Public Speaking task assigned on Google Classroom.
