Agree Or Disagree

Evaluating Speakers #9

Worksheet Description

The “Evaluating Speakers” worksheet is an interactive feedback form that helps students critically assess a speaker’s presentation. The form features a series of statements regarding the speaker’s performance, including interest level, educational value, perspective offered, appropriateness of approach, engagement, point of view, evidence strength, and delivery effectiveness. Students are asked to rate their agreement with these statements on a five-point scale ranging from “strongly agree” to “strongly disagree.” This format allows students to reflect on and respond to specific aspects of the speaking event, providing a structured approach to evaluation.

The worksheet is designed to cultivate analytical skills in students, enabling them to discern what makes a speech compelling and what areas might need improvement. By considering different elements of the speaker’s presentation, students learn to pay attention to both content and delivery style, and how these factors influence an audience’s reception. This exercise not only enhances students’ listening and critical thinking abilities but also their capacity to provide constructive feedback. Such skills are invaluable for their educational growth and for future endeavors where they may be required to evaluate peer or professional presentations.
