S1 SOLO TALK A JOB I WOULD LIKE Ask pupils to choose a job they would like to do when they leave school. They are going to give a solo talk about this job to the class focusing on: - what the person does; - what qualities and qualifications the person needs in order to do the job; - what attracts the speaker to the job and why he/she thinks they would be good at it. In jotters, make three columns across a double page, one for each section: - Section 1: write 20 details about what the person actually does (eg not just cutting hair but the different types of cut; not just playing football but appearing on tv, commenting, etc); - Section 2: write 10 qualities the person should have and a reason why each quality is needed (eg patience because some people’s hair is difficult to work with; ability to work with others because a footballer is part of a team); - Section 3: write 5 things that made you interested in the job (eg saw it on tv, or a relative does it) and 5 reasons why you think you would be good at it (others ask me to do their hair; I’ve been picked for the school team). Now sort each section into order for your notes. One way to do this is to group the items in each list together by numbering them: all the items that go together are given the same number; then all items with the same number are grouped together on you note page. Prepare the Talk: - a short introduction, saying who you are and what the job is - a topic sentence introducing each section - a short conclusion asking you listeners to give you the job. Your talk should be between 3 an 5 minutes long – so each section should be roughly a minute long. Test each section out. Rehearse your talk to your group, with a timer. Listen to any comments from your group and make any changes you feel will make your talk better.
