Writing Course Term 4: Speech Writing

This term, we’re developing oracy and rhetoric. Being able to express oneself powerfully through speech is an important part of life and the pinnacle of this is public speaking. In these tutorials, students choose topics they care about and learn how to write passionate, persuasive and powerful speeches. We analyse successful speeches of the past for language and structure and then use these techniques to enhance our own speeches.

These tutorials are a blend of direct teaching and students writing. Live feedback and support is given in the moment to help students make good progress and feel confident and engaged.

  • Tutorials – The tutorials are a blend of direct teaching, group discussion of extracts and model writing, and writing practice with live feedback from the tutor
  • Writing requirements – Students need to write during the lessons using online worksheets. Students write at their own pace and receive guidance and encouragement along the way.
  • Feedback and support – Students will receive live feedback on written work during tutorials using Google Classrooms. It is useful to have a Google account that they can use for this purpose
  • Homework – Optional homework opportunities provided.
