Believe it or not, students are being asked to record themselves on Photo Booth. We have been taking notes and practicing public speaking skills in class, but students need to analyze how they look and sound to adjust their skills and Photo Booth allows them to do just that! We are starting with a 20 second introduction of themselves to get used to the idea, but then we will be moving on to the students' This I Believe essays. These speeches will be presented to their classes, but should be practiced at home a lot. If they perform well in class, they will be asked to give their speech again to the whole 7th grade team, and if that goes well, they could be giving their speech to the whole school!
