Transcript: Student Session 5B | Aug 24, 1998

Missus UJ in her forties with shoulder-length, feathered, blond hair appears on screen. She wears a black captain’s blazer, a white undershirt and a gold chain necklace.

Missus UJ says HI, GOOD MORNING, AND WELCOME
BACK TO LANGUAGE ALIVE.
I HOPE WE HAVE ALL OF OUR
AGENDAS SET IN FRONT OFTEN US,
AND WE'RE ALL KEYED UP FOR
TODAY'S SESSION, WHICH IS
CALLED MAKING PRESENTATIONS,
AND I THINK YOU ARE REALLY
GOING TO ENJOY IT.
NOW, I'D LIKE TO TAKE JUST A
COUPLE OF MOMENTS AND TO THANK
USBORNE SCHOOL FOR SENDING ME,
ACTUALLY, THEY WERE UPSTAIRS,
AFTER THE SHOW, I WOULD HAVE
SHOWCASED THESE LAST WEEK
FOR YOU, OSBORNE, BUT USBORNE
CREATED 12 WONDERFUL WAYS
IN WHICH THEY WOULD DEAL WITH
Mrs. UJ WHO WAS THE POACHER
BACK ON OUR STORY ON
SPELLING AND WORD PLAY.
I'D LIKE TO SHOW
THESE THIS MORNING.
I WON'T BE ABLE TO READ ALL OF
YOUR IDEAS, BUT I'M BRINGING
YOUR IDEAS BACK NEXT WEEK ON
THE SHOW BECAUSE NEXT WEEK WE
ARE GOING TO DO A REVIEW OF
ALL THE SESSIONS WE DID.
AND I'M GOING TO SPEND SOME
TIME, AND I'M GOING TO
SHOWCASE ALL THE PIECES.
SO FOR ANY KIDS OUT THERE
THAT ARE STILL WORKING ON
PROJECTS, THIS WOULD BE THE
WEEK TO GET THINGS FAXED IN,
OR PACKAGED IN TO ME, SO NEXT
WEEK I'LL BE ABLE TO SPEND A
GREAT DEAL OF TIME
SHOWCASING THEM.
LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT
WHAT USBORNE SENT.

Missus UJ shows a piece of paper with a title that reads “Ideas from Usborne” with 12 numbered items that she describes. Missus UJ appears in a little square box in the lower right-hand corner with the pages on full screen in the background.

Missus UJ continues WE HAVE A CLASS LIST OF 12
WONDERFUL IDEAS ON HOW
TO DEAL WITH THE POACHER.
I ESPECIALLY LIKE NUMBER 12,
USBORNE, WHERE YOU SAID YOU
WOULD PLAN TO DRESS UP AS
ANIMALS AND STAGE A MOCK
POACHING SITUATION IN
FRONT OF A CITY HALL.
SO THAT WAS GREAT.
AND I THANK YOU, USBORNE,
FOR SENDING THEM IN.
AND I HOPE YOU'RE BE ABLE TO
DO SOME OF THESE IDEAS THAT
YOU HAVE, AND TAKE THEM OUT
INTO THE COMMUNITY AND DO SOME
OF THE WRITING PIECES, MAYBE
BETWEEN NOW AND NEXT WEEK WHEN
I BRING THIS BACK ON AIR,
YOU'LL BE ABLE TO CALL ME IN,
OR TO FAX ME SOME OF THE
THINGS YOU'VE ACTUALLY DONE.
NOW, WE ALSO HAVE FROM
SOUTHWOOD PARK, THREE
WONDERFUL LETTERS
THAT CAME IN.
THEY ARE ALL EXTREMELY
WELL WRITTEN.

Missus UJ flips the page and finds a letter.

Missus UJ continues THEY'RE FROM THERESA,
SHANNON AND JEFFREY.
AND THEY EACH WROTE A
WONDERFUL LETTER, WHICH AGAIN
I WILL BRING BACK NEXT
WEEK IN MORE DETAIL.
YOU CAN SEE THE FORMAT OF THE
LETTER IS SET UP PERFECTLY.
EVERYTHING IS
SPELLED CORRECTLY.
IT IS ALL ORGANIZED WITH GOOD
PARAGRAPH STRUCTURE AND SO
ON, AND THEY ALL HAVE
A VERY STRONG MESSAGE.

Missus UJ flips the page to another letter.

Missus UJ continues SO HERE'S ONE FROM JEFFREY.
ANOTHER ONE HERE FROM THERESA.
ALSO A VERY STRONG LETTER ON
ASKING ME TO HAVE A CHANGE OF
HEART AND TO STOP
HURTING THE ANIMALS.

Missus UJ turns the page to another letter.

Missus UJ continues AND, THIRDLY, FROM
SHANNON HUNTER.
AND SHE ALSO HAS WRITTEN ME
A VERY STRONG AND FORCEFUL
LETTER, VERY WELL
DONE, SHANNON.
SO I THANK YOU VERY
MUCH, AND THAT WAS GREAT.

Missus UJ appears on the full screen again.

Missus UJ continues NOW, THIS WEEK, WHAT WE ARE
GOING TO BE DOING IS IT'S ON
MAKING PRESENTATIONS, AND
IT'S A VERY SPECIAL SHOW.
WE ARE GOING TO CHANGE
THE FORMAT SLIGHTLY.
NOW THAT YOU HAVE YOUR AGENDAS
IN FRONT, THE WRITING PROMPT
WILL GO THROUGHOUT
THE LESSON TODAY.
WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS ANY
TIME YOU COME ACROSS AN IDEA,
AN INTERESTING TOPIC,
SOMETHING THAT MADE A
PRESENTATION SPECIAL, I'D LIKE
YOU TO WRITE IT DOWN,
AND YOU CAN USE YOUR AGENDA TO
REFER TO LATER WHEN YOU ARE
MAKING PRESENTATIONS.
SO FILL IT UP.
DON'T WORRY ABOUT SPELLING.
YOU CAN PUT IN SINGLE WORDS,
SENTENCES, DRAW LITTLE THINGS,
ANYTHING THAT IS GOING TO
PROMPT YOU ON SOMETHING THAT
YOU'VE LEARNED TODAY ON
MAKING PRESENTATIONS.
SO I'M GOING TO TAKE YOU RIGHT
NOW TO OUR FIRST SPEAKER.
HIS NAME IS JOHN PASKERIS.
AND AFTERWARDS, I'M GOING TO
ASK YOU A QUESTION TO CALL IN.
SO WATCH CAREFULLY.
LET'S GO TO JOHN.

Missus UJ holds up a clapperboard and John appears on screen.

John is a pre-teenager with short, straight, light brown, middle-parted hair and wears a navy blue graphic T-shirt that says “My God! They killed Kenny!” with the characters of South Park.

John says -ARE WE ON AIR?
OH, OKAY.
IT'S ON, RIGHT?
YOU SURE IT'S ON?
OKAY.
HI, MY TOPIC IS ON STALLING,
OR PROCRASTINATING,
OR DELAYING, HOWEVER
YOU WANT TO PUT IT.
THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO STALL.
RIGHT NOW I'M STALLING.
BY SAYING THAT I'M STALLING,
I AM ACTUALLY STALLING.
THIS IS ONE OF THE MANY WAYS
TO PROCRASTINATE WHICH YOU
WILL BE HEARING
ABOUT IN THIS SPEECH.
I CAN BET EVERYONE OUT THERE
HAS USED ONE TACTIC OF
STALLING IN A SPEECH
IN THE PAST FEW YEARS.
ONE WAY TO DELAY IS TO...
TO...
TO FAKE...

John begins to scratch himself.

John continues AN ACTION...
OR SAY SOMETHING POINTLESS.
YOU SURE THAT'S ON, RIGHT?
OKAY.
ANOTHER WAY TO...
TO...
K-K KILL TIME IS TO
ST-ST-STUTTER, THAT'S IT.
MY FINAL WAY TO DELAY IS TO...
SHOOT.
OH YEAH, IS TO PRETEND YOU'VE
LOST SOMETHING, EVEN THOUGH
YOU KNEW WHERE IT
WAS THE WHOLE TIME.
HOWEVER, PROCRASTINATING
IS NOT ONLY KILLING TIME,
IT'S ALSO AN EXCELLENT
WAY TO GET OUT OF JAMS.
FOR EXAMPLE, YOU CAN PRETEND
TO -- WHAT DID YOU SAY?
SURE YOU DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING?
OKAY, I MUST BE
HEARING THINGS.
ANYWAYS, IT'S TO PRETEND TO HEAR
SOMETHING YOU DON'T ACTUALLY
HEAR WHEN YOU'VE FORGOTTEN
A LINE IN A SPEECH, SAY.
TO GET OUT OF DOING CHORES,
YOU CAN ALWAYS USE THE
CLASSIC, 'AT THE COMMERCIAL',
OR 'THE SHOW'S NEARLY OVER,
LET ME WATCH THE END', OR YOU
BASICALLY HAVE SOMETHING
BETTER TO DO.
DID I MENTION HOW MUCH FUN
IT'S BEEN DOING THIS SHOW?
AND THE CAMERA
MEN, BEAUTIFUL JOB.
I'LL GET BACK TO THE SPEECH.
A DIFFERENT WAY TO GET OUT OF
DOING CHORES IS BY STRIKING
UP A CONVERSATION.
STALLING IS ALSO PUTTING OFF.
LIKE A GREAT PROCRASTINATOR
ONCE SAID, NEVER DO TODAY WHAT
YOU CAN PUT OFF 'TIL TOMORROW,
OR PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE, SO
PROCRASTINATORS ARE VIRTUOUS
BECAUSE THEY CAN WAIT FOREVER.

Missus UJ appears back on screen.

Missus UJ says HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO PUT OFF
A SPEECH BECAUSE YOUR TEACHERS
TOLD YOU YOU HAVE TO DO A
SPEECH IN FRONT OF THE CLASS?
NOW, SOMETIMES, STATISTICS
HAVE SHOWN US THAT THE NUMBER
ONE HUMAN FEAR IS
PUBLIC SPEAKING.
LET'S LOOK AT MY QUESTION.
I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU A MINUTE
TO BUZZ, AND THEN I WANT
YOU TO CALL IN.

The question appears on screen and reads “Statistics show that the number 1 human fear is ´public speaking.´ Agree or Disagree? And why. Call in…”

Missus UJ appears in the little box and says HI, GOOD MORNING,
JACK MINOR?

Erik says HEY.

Missus UJ says HI. WHO DO I HAVE WITH ME NOW?

Eric says ERIC.

Missus UJ says HI, ERIC.
NOW, DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE
THAT PUBLIC SPEAKING IS THE
NUMBER ONE HUMAN FEAR?

Eric says I DISAGREE.

Missus UJ says YOU DO?
OKAY.
WHY DO YOU DISAGREE?

Eric says 'COS THE NUMBER ONE
FEAR IS DEATH.

Missus UJ says OKAY, OKAY.
AFTER DEATH, DO YOU THINK
PUBLIC SPEAKING, IS IT
SOMETHING YOU WOULD
BE FEARING THOUGH?

Eric says NO.

Missus UJ says OH, OKAY.
YOU LIKE TO GET UP
AND DO A SPEECH?

Eric says YEAH.

Missus UJ says OH, GOOD FOR YOU.
I'M VERY GLAD TO HEAR THAT.
YOU MUST HAVE A LOT
OF SELF-CONFIDENCE.
DID YOU DO A
SPEECH THIS YEAR?

Eric says YEAH.

Missus UJ says GOOD FOR YOU.
WHAT WAS YOUR TOPIC?

Eric says TOUCAN ALIENS.

Missus UJ says OH, GREAT.
DID THE KIDS LIKE IT?

Eric says YEAH.

Missus UJ says GREAT.
LISTEN, THANKS
FOR CALLING IN.
I'M SO GLAD THAT YOU
SAID YOU DISAGREE.
THAT MEANS YOU'VE BEEN
DOING A LOT OF WORK ON
ORAL-VISUAL COMMUNICATION.

Eric says OKAY, BYE.

Missus UJ says THANKS FOR CALLING IN.
OKAY, WE'LL HEAR
FROM ANOTHER SPEAKER.
THAT'S GREAT.
BECAUSE TODAY WE ARE
GOING TO TALK A LOT ABOUT
SELF-CONFIDENCE AND HOW
TO OVERCOME THAT FEAR.
GOOD MORNING, USBORNE.
HI, IS THIS SARAH?
GOOD MORNING?
PICK UP YOUR PHONE.
HI, IS THIS SARAH?

Mike says NO, THIS IS ANOTHER PERSON.

Missus UJ says WHAT IS YOUR NAME?

Mike says MIKE.

Missus UJ says HI, MIKE.
WOULD YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE?

Mike says AGREE.

Missus UJ says SO YOU AGREE THAT IT'S
PRETTY SCARY TO DO A SPEECH?

Mike says YEAH.

Missus UJ says WHY WOULD IT BE SCARY
FOR YOU TO DO A SPEECH?

Mike says BECAUSE YOU GET BUTTERFLIES
IN YOUR STOMACH.

Missus UJ says AHA, AHA.
GOOD, OKAY.
WELL, THANKS FOR CALLING IN.
WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT HOW
TO OVERCOME SOME OF THOSE
BUTTERFLIES THIS MORNING.
SO THANKS FOR CALLING IN.
OKAY.
NOW, THIS WHOLE SERIES
HAS BEEN ABOUT LANGUAGE
COMING ALIVE.
AND WE HAVE TO HAVE REASONS
FOR WHY WE HAVE BEEN TRYING TO
ENCOURAGE YOU TO IMPROVE YOUR
READING AND YOUR WRITING AND
YOUR TALKING.
AND IT'S ALL ABOUT
ORAL-VISUAL COMMUNICATIONS.
AND THIS MORNING, WE'RE GOING
TO LOOK AT WHAT THAT MEANS ON
YOUR REPORT CARD.
WHAT IS AN ORAL-VISUAL
PRESENTATION?
THIS IS A SPECIAL SERIES FOR
ME BECAUSE THE KIDS THAT YOU
ARE GOING TO BE SEEING ARE
ACTUALLY CHILDREN THAT I TEACH
AT MY SCHOOL.
NOW, YOU'LL SEE THEM IN SMALL
GROUPS, AND CERTAINLY I'VE
PULLED THEM OUT OF THE
CLASSROOM IN ORDER TO DO THE
TAPING, THAT'S CERTAINLY NOT
THE SIZE OF MY CLASSROOM.
BUT I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT
BECAUSE IT IS REALLY GOING TO
BE SPECIAL TO ME.
AND WE ARE GOING TO TALK,
FIRST OF ALL, TO TIM, WHO IS
A GRADE SEVEN STUDENT IN MY
CLASS, WHO JUST LIKE OUR LAST
CALLER, WAS VERY AFRAID OF
GETTING UP IN FRONT OF THE
CLASS AT ALL.
SO LET'S TALK TO TIM.

Tim appears on screen. Tim is around 11 years old, has short brown hair cut in the shape of a bowl, and wears a white turtleneck.

Missus UJ says TIM, WHEN YOU FIRST CAME
TO MY CLASS IN SEPTEMBER,
HOW DID YOU FEEL ABOUT
MAKING PRESENTATIONS?

Tim says WELL, I WAS KIND
OF AFRAID ABOUT IT.
AND I DONE PRESENTATIONS IN
THE PAST, BUT NOW THERE IS
KIND OF MORE PRESSURE BECAUSE
IT WAS IN GRADE SEVEN.

Missus UJ says AND HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN
YOU HAD TO GET UP AND
MAKE PRESENTATIONS?
HOW DID YOU FEEL
ABOUT THAT INITIALLY?

Tim says I WAS REALLY NERVOUS.
AND MY HANDS USED TO
ACTUALLY START SHAKING.

Missus UJ says AND NOW HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT
MAKING PRESENTATIONS AFTER
SPENDING A YEAR
IN MY CLASSROOM?

Tim says I FEEL A LOT BETTER, AND MORE
CONFIDENT WHEN I AM SPEAKING.

Missus UJ says WHAT KIND OF THINGS DID YOU
DO IN GRADE SEVEN TO IMPROVE
THAT CONFIDENCE?

Tim says WELL, WE STARTED WITH SOME
SMALL ASSIGNMENTS THAT WE WERE
DOING, LIKE, LITTLE PROJECTS,
AND THEN WE MOVED ON TO
DRAMA, WHICH IS WHERE WE DO
LITTLE SKITS AND THINGS.
AND THEN WE GOT TO BIGGER
PRESENTATIONS, LIKE I DID ONE
ON THE BLUE WHALE, AND I
FELT CONFIDENT ON THAT,
I MEMORIZED THAT.
AND MY LAST SPEECH I DID
WAS ON AUTOMOBILE POLLUTION.
AND THAT WAS PRETTY GOOD.
THAT WAS ONE OF MY BEST.

Missus UJ appears on screen.

Missus UJ says TIM TALKS A LOT ABOUT THE
TRAINING, AND HOW WHAT HAS
HAPPENED TO HIM OVER THE YEAR.
NOW, THIS MORNING, I'M GOING
TO START OFF BY SHOWING YOU
SOME VERY INFORMAL
PRESENTATIONS.
AND WHILE YOU ARE WATCHING
IT, WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS
WRITE DOWN ON YOUR AGENDA
WHAT KINDS OF THING THE KIDS
USE, WHAT VISUAL THINGS THEY
USE TO HELP THEM WITH THEIR
PRESENTATIONS, AND HOW THEIR
PRESENTATIONS WERE VERY,
VERY EFFECTIVE.
SO WE'RE GOING THE LOOK
AT SOME GRADE SEVENS.
THEY ARE GOING TO TALK TO YOU
ABOUT SOME UNDERWATER THINGS.
SO WE HAVEN'T LEFT THE OCTOPUS
AND THE SEA CREATURES
AND SEA FEATURES VERY FAR.
AND CALL IN AS SOON AS YOU
HAVE SOME IDEAS OF SOME THINGS
THEY HAVE SHOWN YOU TO
DO AN INFORMAL TALK.

A girl around 10 appears on screen in a classroom at a table with 3 girl students to her right and one other student to her left. The girl has black hair pulled back in a ponytail and wears a striped tank top.

The little girl says SOME DOLPHINS, IN SEEK
OF FOOD IN THE SAND,
USE THEIR NOSE AS A DRILL.
THEY DO THIS BY KIND OF
DIGGING THEIR NOSE INTO THE
SAND AND SPINNING THEIR WHOLE
BODY AROUND LIKE A DRILL.
THEY ALSO USE ECHOLOCATION TO
DETERMINE IF A PREDATOR IS
ANYWHERE NEAR THEM.
AND IF THERE IS AN ENEMY, SUCH
AS THE SHARK, NEAR THEM, THEN
THEY WILL RAM OR BUTT THEIR
NOSE INTO THE SIDE OF THE
SHARK, AND THIS
WILL DRIVE IT AWAY.

A girl in the middle of the girls to the left who has shoulder-length, straight, black hair, and wears a light pink short says HOW FAST DO THEY SWIM?

The girl with the striped tank top says WELL, WHEN THEY ARE SWIMMING
ON THE BOW OF THE BOAT, IF WE
WERE TO TRY, WE WOULD JUST GET
SUCKED UP UNDER AND WE WOULD
DIE IN THE PROPELLERS, BUT
THEY SWIM REALLY, REALLY
FAST, AND THEY CAN KEEP UP,
AND THE WAVE ON THE BOW OF THE
BOAT, IT KIND OF PUSHES THEM.
BUT IF THEY SWAM SLOWER, THEN
THEY WOULD GET SUCKED UNDER
AND DIE.

The girl with the light pink shirt appears on screen giving a presentation. She points to a poster of a diagram of pipes with a title that says “water treatment.”

The girl in the pink shirt says THIS IS WHY WE HAVE WHAT IS
CALLED A WATER TREATMENT PLANT.
THEY TAKE WATER FROM THE
LAKE, WHICH GOES THROUGH A
SCREENING ROOM.
THEY SCREEN OUT FISH,
PLANTS AND LOGS.
THEN, IN THE CHEMICAL ROOM,
CHLORINE, LIME AND ALUM IS
ADDED TO IMPROVE TASTE,
ODOUR, AND TO KILL GERMS.
IN THE COAGULATION AND
FLOCCULATION ROOM, THEY ARE
MIXED TOGETHER, AND THEY
CLING ON TO OTHER PARTICLES
IN THE WATER.
HERE, IN THE SEDIMENTATION
ROOM, THE WATER IS SETTLED,
AND ALL THE PARTICLES
SINK TO THE BOTTOM.
IN THE FILTRATION ROOM, SAND
AND ROCKS ACT AS FILTERS
AND FILTER THE REST
OF THE PARTICLES.
THEN, DISINFECTION IS ADDED
TO KILL ANY OTHER GERMS.
IT IS STORED IN
HUGE STORAGE TANKS.
AND WHEN YOU TURN ON YOUR
TAP, IT IS ON THE WAY
TO YOUR HOME.
SO WATER IS CLEAN WHEN
IT GETS TO YOUR HOME.
BUT HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED
HOW MUCH IT COSTS?
LET'S TAKE AN EXAMPLE,
A THOUSAND LITRES.
HOW MUCH DO YOU
THINK IT COSTS?

A redheaded girl in the classroom wearing a camouflage tank top raises her hand and says A HUNDRED DOLLARS?

The girl in the striped tank top says AROUND 50 DOLLARS.

The girl in the pink shirt says WELL IF YOU GUESSED ABOVE
A DOLLAR, IT'S WRONG.
IT'S ONLY 58 CENTS.

The redheaded girl says OVER HERE IS A WATERSPOUT.

The redheaded girl holds up a 3-D model of a waterspout made out of clumped up paper.

The redheaded girl says AND IF YOU LOOK BENEATH THE
CLOUD OVER THERE, YOU'LL SEE
THAT'S VERY BUMPY, AND THE
CLOUDS THAT SPAWN WATER SPOTS
AND TORNADOES ARE CALLED THE
CUMULONIMBUS CLOUD WHICH MEANS
A STORM OR A RAIN CLOUD.
AND THEY ARE VERY BUMPY
ON THE BOTTOM, TO STORE
ALL THE ENERGY.
AND THERE IS WATER
THAT GETS UP.
AND HERE IS SOME DEBRIS.
THEY HOLD IT -- NOT ALL DEBRIS
GOES INSIDE THE FUNNEL OR THE
VORTEX, MOST OF IT STICKS
OUTSIDE AND THEN IT DROPS IT
LATER ON.
AND THERE'S A SHIP THAT HAS A
LOT OF BAD LUCK AWAITING IT.

A 10-year-old girl appears on screen holding a beta fish in a little glass tank. She has short, side-parted, black hair, and wears a white polo shirt and black shorts.

The girl wearing a polo says AS YOU CAN SEE, I DID MY
PRESENTATION ON THE SIAMESE
FIGHTING FISH.
IN FACT, I HAVE A SIAMESE
FIGHTING FISH RIGHT HERE,
IF ANYBODY HASN'T
SEEN ONE BEFORE.

The redheaded girl says SWEET.

The girl in the tank top says IT'S RED.

The girl wearing a polo uses an overead projector of drawings that she made of the beta fish and while she turns the pages she says IT LIVES IN THAILAND
AROUND THE WATERS OF THE
MALAY ARCHIPELAGO.
THEY ARE FOUND IN PONDS,
DRAINAGE TUNNELS, AND SLOW
MOVING RIVERS.
THE SIAMESE FIGHTING FISH
EARNED ITS NAME BECAUSE OF THE
LONG AND EXCITING FIGHTS
THAT OCCUR BETWEEN MALES.
FEMALES, ON THE OTHER
HAND, DO NOT FIGHT.
IN FACT, IT IS A SPECTATOR
SPORT IN THAILAND, AND LARGE
AMOUNTS OF MONEY ARE GAMBLED
ON THESE COMPETITIONS.
HOWEVER, IN THE WILD, THE
BETAS ARE SHY AND HIDES
AMONG THE PLANTS TO AVOID
PREDATORS LIKE THE KING FISH
OR THE HERON.

Missus UJ says NOW, WEREN'T THEY TERRIFIC?
THE THING IS, IN MY CLASS, WE
THINK, WELL, IF YOU HAVE LOTS
OF VISUALS, YOU HAVE LOTS OF
STUFF, THEN YOU ARE SO BUSY
THAT YOU CAN'T BE NERVOUS
BECAUSE YOU HAVE
A REAL JOB TO DO.
NOW, I'VE GOT A LOT OF
KIDS READY TO CALL IN.
REMEMBER, IF YOU DON'T GET
YOUR CALL ANSWERED, DON'T GET
DISCOURAGED BECAUSE AT THE
END OF THE SHOW, I'LL STAY
15 MINUTES LONGER, AND I'LL TRY
TO RECEIVE ALL OF YOUR CALLS
AT THAT TIME.
OKAY, WE'VE GOT JACK
MINOR ON THE LINE.
GOOD MORNING.

Jessica says HELLO.

Missus UJ says HI, WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Jessica says JESSICA.

Missus UJ says HI, JESSICA.
NOW, WHAT WERE SOME OF THE
METHODS THAT THE KIDS USED IN
THEIR INFORMAL TALK TO
SHOW YOU WHAT THEY KNEW?

Jessica says THEY USED HAND MOTIONS.

Missus UJ says GOOD.
OKAY, SO HAND MOTIONS.

Jessica says TRANSPARENCIES, OVERHEADS.

Missus UJ says GOOD.
JUST A SEC SO YOU CAN COPY
THEM DOWN ON YOUR AGENDA,
REMEMBER.

Missus UJ writes on a large piece of paper with a marker. The paper has a title that reads “Show what you know….”

Missus UJ says SO THE OVERHEAD PROJECTOR.
THAT WAS A REALLY GOOD IDEA.
WHY WAS THAT SUCH AN
EFFECTIVE WAY OF DOING
HER PRESENTATION?

Next to point one and two, Missus UJ writes “hand motions” and “overead/s”

Jessica says BECAUSE IT SHOWED THE PEOPLE
WHAT SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT.

Missus UJ says EXACTLY, EXACTLY.
AND SHE COULD KEEP
CHANGING IT AND SO ON.
AND SHE ALSO HAD LOTS
OF COLOUR, AND SO ON,
ON HER OVERHEADS.
OKAY, WAS THERE ANYTHING ELSE?
OKAY, THANKS FOR CALLING IN.
HI, USBORNE?
GOOD MORNING.
PICK UP YOUR
PHONE, USBORNE.
HELLO.

Erin says HI.

Missus UJ says WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Erin says ERIN.

Missus UJ says HI, ERIN.
WHAT WAS A METHOD OF MAKING
A PRESENTATION THAT YOU SAW
THAT WAS EFFECTIVE?

Erin says THE GIRLS USED
POSTERS AND DIAGRAMS.

Missus UJ says GOOD, GOOD.
THEY WERE VERY GOOD.

Missus UJ writes “poster” and “prop” next to three and four.

Missus UJ says SO POSTERS, ALICE WAS VERY
BUSY TALKING WITH HER POSTER.
SHE DIDN'T HAVE A CHANCE TO
GET NERVOUS BECAUSE SHE HAD A
PATH OF THE WATER CYCLE
THAT SHE WAS SHOWING.
WAS THERE ANYTHING ELSE THERE
THAT YOU COULD SEE THAT WAS
AN EFFECTIVE WAY
OF DOING A VISUAL?

Erin says THEY WERE USING PROPS.

Missus UJ says GOOD, GOOD.
WHAT KIND OF PROP
DID YOU SEE THERE?

Erin says THE PROP OF THE WATERSPOUT.

Missus UJ says RIGHT, RIGHT.
SHE HAD AN EXCELLENT MODEL.
WAS THERE ANY OTHER
PROP THAT YOU SAW?

Erin says THE FISH.

Missus UJ says THE FISH, GREAT.
SO THE MODEL, AND ACTUALLY
BRINGING IN THE REAL STUFF
WHEN SHE BROUGHT IN THE FISH.
GOOD.
OKAY, I HAVE ONE MORE CALLER
I'LL TAKE, THEN WE'LL HAVE
TO GET ON TO THE NEXT ONE.
HI, GOOD MORNING.
OKAY, THE FISH WE ACTUALLY
CALL THIS REALIA, WHERE YOU
BRING IN ACTUALLY SOMETHING
THAT IS REAL, THAT CAN APPLY.

Missus UJ writes “model, fish, realia.”

Missus UJ says GOOD, GOOD MORNING.
ELGIN AVENUE?

Missus UJ says HI.
Amanda says HI.

Missus UJ saysWHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Amanda says AMANDA.

Missus UJ says HI, AMANDA.
WHAT WAS IT WITH THOSE
PRESENTATIONS THAT YOU SAW
THAT WAS EFFECTIVE?

Amanda says THE WAY THEY TALKED.
YOU COULD HEAR THEM CLEARLY.

Missus UJ says GOOD.
SO THEIR VOICES
WERE EXCELLENT.
AND WHAT DID THEY DO WITH
THEIR FRIENDS IN THE GROUP?

Amanda says THEY ASKED QUESTIONS.

Missus UJ says GOOD.
AND THAT'S ANOTHER WAY, WHEN
YOU ARE DOING AN INFORMAL
TALK, TO ASK QUESTIONS.
GET THAT DOWN ON YOUR AGENDA.
BY ASKING QUESTIONS, AND THAT
KIND OF RELAXES YOU, WHEN
SOMEONE HAS AN ANSWER AND
THEY ARE LISTENING TO YOU.
AND BY INVOLVING YOUR
AUDIENCE, THAT'S A VERY GOOD
WAY OF MAKING A VERY
EFFECTIVE PRESENTATION.
OKAY, NOW WHAT WE ARE GOING TO
DO IS WE ARE GOING TO GO ON,
AND WE ARE GOING TO MOVE ON
TO TALKING TO TWO BOYS THAT I
TAUGHT IN GRADE SEVEN.
AND THEY ARE GOING TO TALK A
LITTLE BIT ABOUT ORAL REPORTING.
THEY ARE GOING TO TELL YOU A
COUPLE OF WAYS THAT THEY CAN
EVEN REMEMBER FROM TWO
YEARS AGO OF HOW THEY DID
AN ORAL BOOK REPORT.
SO WRITE DOWN THE IDEA WHEN
YOU HEAR IT, AND YOU'LL GET A
CHANCE TO CALL IT IN AT THE
END OF JESSE'S PRESENTATION.
SO LET'S LOOK AT
JESSE AND ADAM.

Jesse and Adam sit next to each other on screen. Jesse is a young teenager with short brown hair and wears a blue polo shirt and khaki pants. Adam sits to his right and has short, curly, light brown hair, is also a teenager, and wears khaki pants.

Adam says JESS, DO YOU REMEMBER BACK IN
GRADE SEVEN WITH Mrs. UJ WHEN
WE HAD ALL THE DAYS WHERE WE
HAD TO COME IN AS CHARACTERS?

Jesse says I REMEMBER THAT.
THOSE WERE BIOGRAPHY DAYS.
I LOVE THAT DAY.
WE READ DIFFERENT STORIES.
I READ A STORY ABOUT
TINA TURNER, MY IDOL.
AND I CAME IN DRESSED IN A
HUGE DRESS WITH HIGH HEELS
AND BIG LONG WIG.

Adam says YEAH.
AND YOU DID THE LIP SYNC.

Jesse says I LIP SYNCED
WHAT'S
LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT,
HER NUMBER ONE SONG.

Adam says THAT WAS PRETTY FUNNY.

Jesse says SO WHAT DID YOU DO
FOR BIOGRAPHY DAY?

Adam says JOHN AND I CAME IN
AS JACKIE ROBINSON.

Jesse says HOW DID YOU ACTUALLY
PORTRAY THAT PERSON?

Adam says WELL, I CAME IN WEARING A
BASEBALL UNIFORM ON WHAT HE
WORE, AND THE HAT, AND I
BROUGHT IN SOME MEMORABILIA,
WHICH I HAD.
AND IT WORKED OUT
REALLY EFFECTIVELY.

Jesse says IT'S REALLY EFFECTIVE TO
ACTUALLY TAKE A STORY OF A
PERSON AND TRY TO PORTRAY IT
TO PEOPLE WITH THE USE OF A
ROLE-PLAYING PERSON.

Adam says IT WORKED OUT REALLY WELL
BECAUSE I TOLD THE WHOLE STORY,
AND EVERYONE UNDERSTOOD
EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE
TALKING ABOUT.
AND THEY FELT LIKE IT WAS
ACTUALLY JACKIE TELLING
A SPEECH.

Jesse says YEAH, WITH ME, TOO.
EVERYONE HAD SO MUCH
FUN WATCHING ME.
I MADE A FOOL OF MYSELF, BUT
STILL, IT WAS GREAT FUN.

Missus UJ says IT'S FUN WITH JESSE AND ADAM,
THAT THEY DIDN'T REALLY CARE
IF THEY MADE A
FOOL OF THEMSELVES.
THEY HAD A LOT
OF FUN DOING IT.
NOW, GET THOSE IDEAS
DOWN IN YOUR AGENDA.
THEY'VE GIVEN YOU A COUPLE
OF IDEAS ALREADY ON
ORAL REPORTING.
AND NOW JESSE IS GOING
TO GIVE YOU ANOTHER ONE.
NOW, JESSE JUST COMPLETED A
GRADE NINE HISTORY PROJECT,
AND IT WAS ON THE HOLOCAUST.
AND WHEN I ASKED HIM HOW
HE WOULD PRESENT THAT
INFORMATION, HE HAD A SPECIAL
WAY HE THOUGHT WOULD BE THE
MOST EFFECTIVE WAY OF TEACHING
OTHER KIDS WHAT HE HAD
LEARNED ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST.
SO WHEN YOU HAVE THE ANSWER TO
HOW HE PRESENTED IT, WRITE IT
DOWN IN YOUR AGENDA, AND BE
SURE TO CALL IN AFTER BECAUSE
I'M LOOKING FOR THREE
METHODS OF ORAL REPORTING.
LET'S LOOK AT JESSE.

Jesse appears on screen but this time white a white robe around his shoulders.

Jesse says WE CREPT SLOWLY INTO THE
KITCHEN SO NOBODY HEARD.
WE KEPT LOOKING BEHIND US TO
SEE IF ANYONE WAS FOLLOWING
US, BUT NO, NOBODY WAS.
SO WE GOT INTO THE KITCHEN, WE
SAW THERE THE SACK OF POTATOES.
MY SISTER AND HER FRIEND WHO
WAS WITH US SAID, SAID I'LL
LOOK OUT, AND YOU TWO
GET THE POTATOES.
SO WE WALKED OVER TO GET THE
POTATOES, AN MY SISTER'S
FRIEND LOOKED OUT THE SIDE
OF THE DOOR JUST TO SEE IF
ANYBODY WAS THERE.
SO AS WE WERE GETTING
THEM, WE HEARD SHOUTING.
SHOUTING FROM GUARDS SAYING
TO MY SISTER'S FRIEND,
WHERE ARE YOU?
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?
AND WE WERE SO AFRAID.
I SAID TO MY SISTER,
WE HAVE TO STOP THIS.
SHE SAID, NO.
WE CANNOT STOP THIS, OR
WE WILL BE DEAD, TOO.
I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT
SHE MEANT UNTIL LATER.
SO THE GUARDS TOOK HER OFF
AND I HEARD A LOUD GUNSHOT.
I WAS SO AFRAID.
I WAS HORRIFIED.
I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK.
NOW I UNDERSTOOD WHAT MY
SISTER HAD SAID, SO AS THE
GUARDS LOOKED AROUND TO SEE IF
ANYONE ELSE WAS THERE WE HID,
AND WE DID NOT MOVE.
ABOUT TEN MINUTES OR SO LATER,
WE GOT UP AND WALKED BACK
TO OUR BUNKS.
WE SAD DOWN AND GOT READY TO
EAT OUR POTATOES WHICH WE SO
LONG DESERVED.
WE SAW ONE OF MY SISTER'S
FRIEND, I THINK IT WAS, IN THE
SIDE OF THE BUNK CRYING.
SHE COULD NOT TALK.
AND WE KNEW THAT SHE
WAS VERY, VERY WEAK.
SO WE SAID TO HER, WE SAID,
WOULD YOU LIKE OUR POTATOES?
SHE WAS FLABBERGASTED.
SHE SAID, WELL, IF YOU WANT TO
GIVE THEM TO ME, I WOULD BE
DEEPLY HONOURED, BUT I TELL
YOU, YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS,
FOR I WILL DO
SOMETHING FOR YOU.
OF COURSE, THAT DIDN'T MEAN
MUCH TO US, BUT TO SAVE
SOMEONE'S LIFE WAS GOOD
ENOUGH FOR ME, SO I GAVE THE
POTATOES TO HER,
AND SHE ATE THEM.
THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS
SHE WAS FEELING BETTER.
AND WE WENT TO HER AND
WE SAID, SO WE THINK THE
AMERICANS ARE COMING SOON.
SHE SAID, I THINK
THEY ARE, TOO.
BUT MY SISTER, MY SISTER
WAS VERY PESSIMISTIC.
SHE KEPT SAYING THAT
THEY WOULD NEVER COME,
AND WE WOULD DIE THERE.
BUT I KEPT REASSURING
HER THAT WE WOULD LIVE.
ABOUT A YEAR LATER, 1943,
EARLY '44, MAYBE, THE SKY LIT
UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.
I WAS SCARED.
I WOKE UP, I LOOKED OUTSIDE.
THERE WAS BOMBS EVERYWHERE.
THE AMERICANS HAD COME, I WAS
SO HAPPY, BUT A BOMB HIT JUST
IN FRONT OF US, AND A
BARRICADE WAS CLOSED IN.
WE HAD NOWHERE TO GO, NOWHERE
TO HIDE, NOWHERE TO SEE.
AND WE WERE STUCK
THERE, ME AND MY SISTER.
FINALLY, AFTER HOURS OF
SITTING THERE, ONE OF MY
SISTER'S FRIENDS, THE PERSON
WE GAVE THE POTATOES TO,
CAME IN AND SAID,
I FOUND A WAY OUT.

Missus UJ appears on screen.

Missus UJ says WOW, THANK YOU, JESSE.
THAT WAS A VERY POWERFUL STORY.
NOW, I'M GOING TO
TAKE SOME CALLS.
AND, REMEMBER, I'M LOOKING FOR,
FROM JESSE AND ADAM, THREE
DIFFERENT WAYS IN WHICH THEY
CONDUCTED AN ORAL REPORT.
SO CALL IN WITH THE ANSWER.

A piece of paper appears on screen with a title that reads “Oral Reporting.”

Missus UJ continues OKAY, USBORNE,
GOOD MORNING.
GOOD MORNING.

Julie says HELLO.

Missus UJ says HI.
WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Julie says JULIE.

Missus UJ says HI, JULIE.
DID YOU COME UP WITH
SOME IDEAS FROM JESSE
AND ADAM ON WAYS TO
DO AN ORAL REPORT?

Julie says THEY HAD A COSTUME ON.

Missus UJ says GOOD.
JESSE HAD A COSTUME,
YES, HE DID.

Missus UJ writes “costume” on the piece of paper next to number one.

Missus UJ continues AND WHAT DID HE DO WHILE
HE WAS WEARING HIS COSTUME
TO PRESENT HIS
HISTORY ASSIGNMENT?
WHAT KIND OF REPORT
WAS HE GIVING US?
HOW WAS HE PRESENTING
US WHAT HE HAD LEARNED?

Julie says A ROLE PLAY.

Missus UJ writes “Role Play” on the piece of paper and says YES, HE WAS
DOING A ROLE PLAY.
AND HE WAS ALSO, HE WAS
TELLING THE STORY, WASN'T HE?
NOW, WHAT WAS EFFECTIVE ABOUT
THE WAY THAT JESSE TOLD
THAT STORY?

Julie says HE HAD A NEAT VOICE.

Missus UJ writes “storytelling” on the piece of paper and says YES, HE DID, HE DID.
ANYTHING ELSE?

Julie says AND HE DID EYE CONTACT.

Missus UJ writes “Eye contact” and says YES, HE DID.
GOOD FOR YOU.
WE'VE GOT A LOT
OF THINGS HERE.
OKAY, THANKS SO
MUCH FOR CALLING IN.
OKAY.
WE HAD SOME OTHER IDEAS FROM
JESSE AND ADAM, AND PERHAPS
SOMEONE ELSE WILL CALL IN WITH
THOSE IDEAS SO YOU CAN GET
THEM DOWN ON YOUR AGENDA
WHEN THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT
BIOGRAPHY DAY.
ALWAYS IN GRADE SEVENS, I MAKE
MY KIDS READ A BIOGRAPHY OR
AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY.
IT'S PROBABLY THE MOST FUN
PROJECT BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO
DO SOMETHING ON BIOGRAPHY DAY.
LET'S SEE IF YOU
PICKED THAT ONE UP.
GOOD MORNING, ELGIN AVENUE.
HI, WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?
HI.
WHAT DID JESSE AND ADAM GIVE
YOU IDEAS ON ON ORAL REPORTING?
CAN YOU REMEMBER?

The student calling in says THEY DRESSED UP.

Missus UJ says GOOD, THEY WORE COSTUMES.
AND THEY ACTUALLY DRESSED UP.
THEY DID A ROLE PLAY.
DO YOU REMEMBER WHO JESSE
WAS ON BIOGRAPHY DAY?

The student calling in says TINA TURNER?

Missus UJ says YES, HE WAS TINA TURNER.
HE DIDN'T REALIZE WHEN HE'D
PICKED TINA TURNER TO READ ON
BIOGRAPHY DAY, THAT HE WAS
ACTUALLY GOING TO HAVE TO COME
DRESSED AS HER ONE DAY.
BUT HE CERTAINLY
HAD A GOOD TIME.
DO YOU REMEMBER WHAT HE DID
IN HIS ROLE PLAY IN ORDER
TO BE THAT PERSON?

The student calling in says HE SANG.

Missus UJ says EXACTLY.
HE DID A LIP SYNC,
DIDN'T HE?
NOW, WHAT ABOUT ADAM, WHAT
DID HE DO ON BIOGRAPHY DAY?

The student calling in says HE DRESSED UP AS
A BASEBALL PLAYER.

Missus UJ says THAT'S RIGHT.
SO HE ACTUALLY WORE COSTUMES.
AND HE DID A ROLE PLAY.
AND HE DID SOMETHING ELSE.
HE DIDN'T ACTUALLY GO ON ABOUT
IT AS MUCH AS HE PROBABLY
COULD HAVE, BUT I REMEMBER
THAT HE AND HIS PARTNER
JONATHAN, ACTUALLY MADE, THEY
MADE A MUSEUM, SORT OF LIKE
THE BASEBALL HALL OF FAME.
AND HE TALKED ABOUT HOW WHEN
THEY BOUGHT ALL THE BASEBALL
THINGS IN, AND THEY DID
A BASEBALL WALK THROUGH.
AND THEY TOOK THE WHOLE CLASS
THROUGH AND SHOWED ALL THE
MEMORABILIA AND PROPS AND
THINGS THEY BROUGHT IN
TO MAKE IT EFFECTIVE.
SO THAT WAS CERTAINLY
A WONDERFUL IDEA.
SO THERE'S THREE IDEAS --
STORY TELLING, ROLE-PLAYING,
WEARING COSTUMES, AND EVEN
DOING INTERVIEWS WAS ANOTHER
ONE THAT I THINK WE MISSED.
THANKS FOR CALLING IN.
BYE.
ANOTHER WAY OF DOING
ORAL REPORTING, TO DO A
PRESENTATION IS THROUGH DRAMA.
NOW, WE'RE SORT OF
MOVING FROM PARTNER INTO
A LARGER GROUP NOW.
AND THESE TWO GROUPS
HAD AN ASSIGNMENT.
THEY HAD A RESEARCH
ASSIGNMENT TO DO.
THE FIRST GROUP DID A
RESEARCH ASSIGNMENT
ON EATING DISORDERS.
AND THE KIDS HAD TO DECIDE,
THEY HAD RESEARCHED FOR A
COUPLE OF WEEKS ON IT.
THEY'D GONE EVERYWHERE
AND GOT SO MUCH MATERIAL.
AND THEN THEY HAD TO DECIDE
WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST WAY OF
TEACHING ALL THE OTHER KIDS
ABOUT WHAT WE'VE LEARNED
ABOUT EATING DISORDERS.
SO THEY'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU
THE CAUSES AND THE EFFECTS.
AND THEY THOUGHT THE MOST
EFFECTIVE WAY WOULD BE TO
DRAMATIZE SOMETHING.
SO LET'S SEE WHAT
THEY CAME UP WITH.

A teenage girl with shoulder-length, middle-parted, curly brown hair wearing a blue shirt sits next to Missus UJ.

The curly haired girl says YOU PUT US INTO GROUPS, AND
THEN WE DECIDED ON A TOPIC
THAT DEALT WITH THINGS PEOPLE
OUR AGE WOULD DEAL WITH.
AND WE DECIDED ON
EATING DISORDERS.
SO WE TOOK ABOUT TWO WEEKS TO
DO RESEARCH ON IT BY GOING TO
THE LIBRARY, AND LOOKING UP
STUFF ON THE INTERNET AND IN
BOOKS AND STUFF.
AND WE DECIDED TO
DO IT THROUGH DRAMA.

Missus UJ says THAT'S A GREAT WAY
TO SHOW WHAT YOU KNOW.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO
PRESENT IT THROUGH DRAMA?

The curly haired girl says WELL, WE FELT IT WOULD HELP
DEAL WITH EMOTIONAL ISSUES,
OTHER THAN JUST FACTS
AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

Missus UJ says GREAT IDEA.
OKAY, I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO
SEEING YOUR PRESENTATION.

The curly haired girl says THANK YOU.

A teenage girl with black hair pulled back in a ponytail wearing a white long-sleeve shirt and jeans appears on screen pretending to eat a sandwich and then grabs her mouth as if she’s about to be sick.

Another teenage girl with shoulder-length, straight, middle-parted hair, wearing a white shirt, black undershirt, and khaki pants reads from a journal and sits on the stage next to the other girl.

The girl reading from the journal says ONLY 300 CALORIES
A DAY FOR TWO WEEKS.
YEAH, YEAH THAT
SOUNDS GOOD.
AND THIS DIET LOOKS GOOD, BUT
I'LL HAVE TO CUT IT IN HALF.

A teenage boy with strawberry blond hair cut in the shape of a bowl, wearing a gray shirt and gray pants jogs in place and says OH, I'M SO TIRED, BUT
ONLY FIVE MORE POUNDS
TO GO FOR COACH.
GOTTA RUN FASTER TO
FIELD THE BALL BETTER.

Five students from the classroom appear on screen in a half-circle as if in a meeting. A teenage boy with short brown hair, braces, and wearing a yellow, red, and black shirt with jeans sits in the middle.

The boy with the yellow jacket says WELCOME TO THE CABA, CANADIAN
ANOREXIC BULIMIC ASSOCIATION.
WE HAVE A NEW MEMBER WITH US.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO PLEASE STAND
UP AND INTRODUCE YOURSELF.

The girl with curly hair stands and says HI, MY NAME IS CAROL AND
PEOPLE THINK I'M ANOREXIC.

The boy with the yellow jacket says HI, CAROL.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO TELL
US HOW THIS STARTED?

The girl with curly hair stands says WELL, IT'S PRETTY SIMPLE.
EVERYONE IS ALWAYS
PRESSURING ME TO DO BETTER,
ESPECIALLY MY PARENTS.
AND NO MATTER WHAT I DID,
IT WASN'T EVER GOOD ENOUGH.
AND MY MUM TOLD ME I WAS FAT,
AND I REALIZED SHE WAS RIGHT,
SO THAT'S WHY I'M
LOSING WEIGHT NOW.

The boy with strawberry blond hair says I ALMOST HAVE THE
SAME STORY AS YOU.
MY PARENTS, THEY WERE
NEVER THERE FOR ME.
I MEAN, THAT'S BASICALLY
THE BOTTOM LINE.
AND MY FOOTBALL COACH, HE
WANTED ME TO LOSE WEIGHT,
AND THEN I STARTED,
AND I NEVER STOPPED.

The girl with the black hair in a ponytail says WELL, IT ALL STARTED WITH
MY FRIENDS TELLING ME
THAT I WAS FAT.
AND I JUST TRIED NOT
EATING SO I COULDN'T.
SO I BEGAN EATING A LARGE
AMOUNT OF FOOD, AND I JUST
THREW IT UP.
AND THAT HELPED ME.
THEN I ENDED UP IN THE
HOSPITAL, AND NOW I'M HERE.

The girl with the curly brown hair says I NEVER THROW UP BECAUSE OF
FOOD, I JUST DON'T EAT IT.

A teenage girl with shoulder-length, side-parted, brown, wavy hair wears circular glasses and a gray t-shirt.

The girl with the circular glasses says WELL, I'VE ALWAYS HAD LOW
SELF-ESTEEM, AND I WAS ALWAYS
SO JEALOUS OF MY COUSIN AND MY
BROTHER BECAUSE THEY WERE SO
SKINNY, AND I FOUND OUT THAT
THEY WERE HOSPITALIZED FOR
BULIMIA, AND I THOUGHT THAT
WAS THE WAY TO GO, SO I
STARTED BINGING AND PURGING,
BUT IT JUST FELT SO GROSS,
SO I STARTED JUST
NOT EATING AT ALL.
BUT THAT FELT EVEN WORSE.
BUT I REALIZED AT THE
BEGINNING OF THE TIMES WHEN I
STARTED BINGING AND PURGING,
IT DIDN'T FEEL THAT BAD, AND
WHEN I STARTED NOT EATING,
I DIDN'T FEEL THAT BAD.
SO I STARTED GOING IN LITTLE
CYCLES OF NOT EATING,
AND THEN BINGING AND
PURGING, AND SOMETIMES
COMPULSIVELY EXERCISING.
MY FRIENDS, THEY TOLD ME TO
COME HERE BECAUSE I HAD A
PROBLEM, AND I DID, AND
IT'S HELPED ME A LOT.
[gasping]

The boy with strawberry blond hair is still jogging and says I THINK I'VE LOST
ENOUGH WEIGHT FOR COACH.
I'M FINE THE WAY I AM.

The girl with the circular glasses speaks on the phone and says I KNOW, SHE
ALWAYS DOES THAT.
IT BUGS ME SO MUCH.
UM, SURE, YEAH, I'LL
COME OVER AFTER SUPPER.
OKAY, BYE.

The girl with curly brown hair speaks to the audience and says MUM, I WENT TO A MEETING,
AND THEY TOLD ME ABOUT MY
PROBLEM, AND WHAT IT IS, AND
THEY TOLD ME THAT I NEED
HELP, AND I THINK
YOU DO, TOO.

Missus UJ appears back on screen.

Missus UJ says YOU KNOW, DOING A DRAMA
PRESENTATION AS A WAY OF
SHOWING RESEARCH HAS A LOT OF
ADVANTAGES BECAUSE, FIRST OF
ALL, YOU HAVE THE AUDIENCE
INTEREST, YOU CAN SHOW
FEELINGS, AND YOU CAN SHOW
CAUSES AND EFFECTS THAT's
VERY DIFFICULT
IN ANY OTHER WAY.
NOW, WE'RE GOING TO TALK TO
ETHAN, AND HE ALSO, HIS GROUP,
A LARGER GROUP, HAD TO DO
HISTORY RESEARCH, AND THEY
ALSO SELECTED TO PRESENT
IT IN A DRAMATIC FORM.
AND BECAUSE IT COVERS A NUMBER
OF YEARS, THEY DECIDED TO DO
IT IN A TIME SEQUENCE.
LET'S SEE WHAT ETHAN'S
GROUP CAME UP WITH IN
THEIR PRESENTATION.

Missus UJ speaks to Ethan and says YOUR GROUP DID QUITE A
LENGTHY RESEARCH ASSIGNMENT.

Ethan says YEAH, WE DID AN ASSIGNMENT
ON REVOLUTIONARIES.

Missus UJ says OH, WOW.
HOW DID YOU ORGANIZE, HOW DID
YOU DECIDE ON WHAT YOU WERE
GOING TO DO TO
PRESENT WHAT YOU KNEW?

Ethan says WELL, WE DECIDED AFTER DOING
LOTS OF RESEARCH IN THE LIBRARY
THAT WE'D DO IT THROUGH DRAMA
AND THROUGH A TIME PERIOD.

Missus UJ says GREAT, GREAT.
SO WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO DO
IT THROUGH A TIME SEQUENCE?

Ethan says BECAUSE WE FELT THAT WOULD
BE THE BEST WAY TO SHOW
WHAT HAPPENED IN MARTIN
LUTHER KING'S LIFE.

Missus UJ says SO IT'S OVER A
NUMBER OF YEARS.
GREAT.
I'LL LOOK FORWARD TO
SEEING YOUR PRESENTATION.

Ethan says THANK YOU.

A teenage boy with short brown hair and a plaid shirt walks onto the stage and Ethan stops him.

Ethan says EXCUSE ME, SIR,
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

The boy in plaid says I'M GOING ON THE BUS.
I NEED TO GO TO WORK.

Ethan says NO, YOU'RE NOT.
DID YOU HEAR WHAT THE
BUS SYSTEM DID TO A
BLACK PERSON YESTERDAY?

The boy in plaid says NO, I DIDN'T.

Ethan says SHE WAS SITTING ON THE BUS,
AND THEY MADE HER GET UP
FOR A WHITE LADY.

The boy in plaid says WHAT HAPPENED?

Ethan says SHE GOT ARRESTED
WHEN SHE REFUSED.

The boy in plaid and two other girls say ARRESTED?

Ethan says YEAH.
IF THEY'RE NOT GOING
TO GIVE US OUR RIGHTS,
WHY SHOULD WE GIVE
THEM OUR BUSINESS?

The boy in plaid says THAT'S RIGHT.
BUT HOW ARE WE
GOING TO GET AROUND?

Ethan says THERE'S OTHER
WAYS TO GET AROUND.
WE CAN USE TAXIS, CARS, JUST
DON'T USE THIS BUS SYSTEM.

The boy in plaid says EXCUSE ME, ARE YOU
Mr. MARTIN LUTHER KING?

Ethan says YES.
IS THERE A PROBLEM, OFFICER?

The boy in plaid says YES, YOU'RE UNDER ARREST.

Ethan says WHAT DO YOU MEAN,
I'M UNDER ARREST?
WHAT AM I UNDER ARREST FOR?

The boy in plaid says YOU'RE UNDER ARREST FOR
BOYCOTTING YESTERDAY.

Ethan says I'M ALLOWED TO SPEAK
OUT FOR MY RIGHTS.

The boy in plaid takes Ethan by the wrists and puts them behind his back and says NO, YOU'RE UNDER ARREST.

Being pushed to the ground, Ethan says YOU CAN'T DO THIS.

Later, Ethan stands at a podium and says I STILL HAVE A DREAM.
IT IS A DREAM DEEPLY ROOTED
IN THE AMERICAN DREAM.
I HAVE A DREAM THAT ONE DAY
THIS NATION WILL RISE UP
AND LIVE OUT THE TRUE
MEANING OF ITS CREEDS.
WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS
TO BE SELF-EVIDENT.
THAT ALL MEN ARE
CREATED EQUAL.
I HAVE A DREAM THAT ONE DAY ON
THE RED HILLS OF GEORGIA, THE
SON OF FORMER SLAVES, AND THE
SON OF FORMER SLAVE OWNERS,
WILL BE ABLE TO SIT DOWN
TOGETHER AT A TABLE
OF BROTHERHOOD.
I HAVE A DREAM THAT MY FOUR
LITTLE CHILDREN WILL ONE DAY
LIVE IN A NATION WHERE THEY
WILL NOT BE JUDGED BY THE
COLOUR OF THEIR SKIN, BUT BY
THE CONTENT OF THEIR CHARACTER.
[cheering]

At the end of the speech, Ethan says HELLO, EVERYBODY.
WE'RE GATHERED HERE
FOR A VERY SPECIAL --

The boy in the plaid shirt pretends to shoot a gun with his hand and then the crowd says OH, MY GOD,
HE'S BEEN SHOT!

Missus UJ says ISN'T THAT AN EXCELLENT
WAY OF SHOWING INFORMATION,
ESPECIALLY IN A TIME SEQUENCE?
NOW, THOSE KIDS
DIDN'T HAVE A SCRIPT.
WHAT THEY DID, THEY DID THEIR
RESEARCH, AND THEY DECIDED
WHAT THEY WOULD DO IN EACH
SCENE, AND THEY TALKED AND
SORT OF DID THE STORY
AS THEY WENT ALONG.
SO IF THEY WERE TO DO THAT
STORY TODAY, PROBABLY THEY
WOULD CHANGE IT, AND IT
WOULDN'T BE EXACTLY THE SAME.
SO YOU DON'T WANT TO GET
CAUGHT UP IN SCRIPT
WHEN YOU ARE PRESENTING
INFORMATION LIKE THAT.
THAT WAS AN EXCELLENT ONE.
NOW, I KNOW WE HAVE
LOTS OF CALLERS.
BUT WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO IS
I'M GOING TO MOVE ON TO THE
VERY LAST SEGMENT, AND I AM
GOING TO TAKE ALL YOUR CALLS
AT THE END.
NOW, WE'RE GOING TO MOVE FROM
A DRAMATIC PRESENTATION INTO
A MORE FORMAL TYPE OF SPEECH.
AND I HAVE FOUR GRADE SEVENS
THAT ARE GOING TO TALK TO YOU.
AND THEY ACTUALLY HAVE
SPEECHES PREPARED FOR A PUBLIC
SPEAKING CONTEST AT OUR SCHOOL
THAT I AM HOLDING NEXT WEEK.
I HAVE SEVEN GRADE SEVEN
CLASSES THAT ARE PRESENTING
OF 14 SPEAKERS.
THIS IS JUST A FEW OF THEM,
BUT I THINK YOU'LL ENJOY THEM.
AS YOU'RE WATCHING THEM, I
WANT YOU TO LOOK FOR A COUPLE
OF THINGS.
FIRST OF ALL, WHAT ARE
THE INTERESTING TOPICS
THEY HAVE SELECTED?
BECAUSE, REMEMBER,
YOU'RE THE AUDIENCE.
THE AUDIENCE WERE GRADE SIX,
SEVEN AND EIGHT STUDENTS
JUST LIKE YOU.
AND WHAT IS EFFECTIVE
ABOUT THEIR SPEECH?
AND YOU CAN CALL IN WITH THAT
AS SOON AS THE SPEAKERS HAVE
SPOKEN, AND I'LL TRY TO
GET ALL OF YOUR CALLS IN
AT THAT TIME.
I THINK YOU'LL ENJOY THEM.
LET'S TAKE A LOOK.

A 12-year-old girl with light brown curly hair pulled back in a ponytail wears a blue t-shirt and a black undershirt.

The girl in blue says SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE THE WORLD
IS MADE UP OF UNSEEN SPIRITS.
ALTHOUGH SCIENTISTS BELIEVE
THE WORLD IS MADE UP
OF UNSEEN FORCES.
ARE MAGIC AND SCIENCE
TRULY RELATED?
IS MAGIC REALLY REAL?
DO CURSES WORK?
CAN SOMEONE PUT
A HEX ON YOU?
BEFORE YOU LAUGH AND SAY NO,
ASK YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS.
HAS ANYONE EVER DONE
SOMETHING SO MEAN TO YOU
YOU HAD THE WORST DAY?
OR HAS ANYONE EVER DONE
SOMETHING SO NICE TO YOU,
YOU HAD THE BEST DAY?
ARE THESE MAGICAL SPELLS?
IF FLYING ON A CARPET IS
MAGIC, THEN WHAT ABOUT
FLYING ON AN AIRPLANE?
IS THAT MAGIC, TOO?
THE WORLD OF MAGIC LEAVES US
MYSTIFIED AND IS FILLED WITH
MANY QUESTIONS THAT
CAN ONLY BE ANSWERED
BY A TRUE MAGICIAN.
IN THE WORLD OF MAGIC, WE SEE
THE IMPOSSIBLE AND BELIEVE
THE UNBELIEVABLE.
DO YOU BELIEVE IN MAGIC?

An 11-year-old boy with short brown hair and wearing a yellow, red, and blue collared shirt appears on screen and says TORNADOS OCCUR EVERY
YEAR ALL OVER THE WORLD.
BUT ALL OF A SUDDEN,
SCIENTISTS HAVE CHOSEN TO
BLAME THEM ON EL
NINO THIS YEAR.
EL NINO HAS BEEN AROUND
FOR A VERY LONG TIME.
IT IS A WARM CURRENT THAT
PASSES THROUGH THE SOUTHERN
UNITED STATES AND
PERU EVERY CHRISTMAS.
ACTUALLY, IT MEANS
BABY JESUS.
THE ONLY TIME EL NINO AFFECTS
THE WORLD IS WHEN THE CURRENT
GOES OFF COURSE AND CHANGES
THE WORLD'S WEATHER PATTERNS.
EL NINO ALSO MEANS WARM.
I BET WE CAN'T GUESS WHAT
SCIENTISTS WILL SAY
ABOUT NEXT YEAR.
THEY'LL PROBABLY SAY ANOTHER
PHENOMENON WILL COME
LIKE EL NINO.
MAYBE IT WILL MEAN COLD
LIKE EL NINO MEANS WARM.
SCIENTISTS CAN MAKE UP ALL
THEY WANT, BUT NATURAL
DISASTERS WILL
ALWAYS BE NATURAL.

A 12-year-old girl with large, wavy, red hair, wearing a camouflage tank top appears on screen and says I DON'T KNOW WHY PEOPLE
STEAL OTHER'S POSSESSIONS.
MOST PEOPLE, AS FAR AS I KNOW,
STEAL BECAUSE THEY ARE MAD
AT SOMEONE, IT'S A DARE, OR THEY
WANT TO PROVE THEIR BRAVENESS.
THE TRUTH IS STEALING DOESN'T
MAKE YOU ANY BRAVER THAN THE
NINE-YEAR-OLD WHO IS
TOO AFRAID TO GO ON
HIS FIRST ROLLER COASTER.
THIEVES ARE COWARDS WHO
ARE TOO AFRAID TO FACE
THE FACTS OF LIFE.
THERE IS A SAYING THAT GUILT
IS THE WORST PUNISHMENT.
IN A WAY, I GUESS
IT'S RIGHT.
I KNOW ALL MY FRIENDS AND I
WHO HAVE BEEN STOLEN FROM
BEFORE DON'T CARE HOW
GUILTY THE THIEF FEELS.
ALL WE REALLY CARE ABOUT IS
THAT THE ITEMS THAT WERE STOLEN
FROM US ARE RETURNED.
THEFT IS A SERIOUS CRIME
WITH SEVERE PUNISHMENTS.
IF YOU GET CAUGHT, YOU CAN
BE CHARGED AND ARRESTED.
I'VE HEARD PEOPLE SAY IF YOU
GET CAUGHT STEALING, JUST CRY
AND THEY'LL LET YOU GO.
WELL, IT ISN'T THAT EASY.
ONCE YOU ARE CAUGHT,
YOU ARE CAUGHT.
THERE IS NO WAY OUT.
YOU CAN'T GET OFF THE HOOK.
THEFT IS AN ADDICTIVE CRIME.
IT BOTHERS ME THAT SOME PEOPLE
IN THIS WORLD ARE THIEVES
WHO DON'T CARE ABOUT
OTHER'S FEELINGS.
I TRY NOT TO LET
THIEVES GET TO ME.
I TRY TO CONTROL MY MOURNING
OVER MY STOLEN POSSESSIONS,
AND I DON'T DO THE SUFFERING
OF REPLACING ITEMS THAT ARE
TAKEN FROM ME.
I TELL MYSELF THAT
WHOEVER DID THIS IS AN
IT.
IT MAY HAVE USED TO
BE A
HE
OR A
SHE,
BUT NOW THEY ARE A ZERO.
THEY MADE THAT CHOICE WHEN
THEY STARTED STEALING.

A 12-year-old girl with short black hair cut in the shape of a bowl wearing circular glasses and white collared sleeveless shirt appears on screen and says NOW, FOR THE GRAND FINALE,
MELT ONE CUP OF SEMISWEET
CHOCOLATE CHIPS AND THREE
TABLESPOONS OF HOT,
STRONG COFFEE.
PREFERABLY FROM STARBUCKS.
THEN STIR IN THREE TABLESPOONS
OF BRANDY FOR AN EXTRA KICK.
AND GRADUALLY BLEND IN THREE
TABLESPOONS OF SMOOTH,
CREAMY BUTTER.
FINALLY, SPREAD THIS
BEAUTIFULLY GLOSSY GLAZE OVER
THE TOP OF THE CAKE, ALLOWING
IT TO DRIBBLE DOWN THE SIDE.
THIS ELEGANT AND SOPHISTICATED
CAKE IS PURE PERFECTION.
IF YOU ARE YEARNING TO SATISFY
THE CAFFEINE-FILLED CHOCOLATE
CRAVING, THIS IS
A DESSERT FOR YOU.
ALTHOUGH YOU MAY BE TEMPTED TO
SHOW THE WORLD YOUR CREATION,
TRUST ME, THE BEST
PART IS YET TO COME.
WITH A SHARP KNIFE, CARVE
YOURSELF A GENEROUS HELPING OF
A LUSTFUL PORTION OF CAKE.
THEN GENTLY PLACE THE
DELECTABLE TROPHY
ON A LARGE PLATE.
WITH A FORK, STAB INTO THE
CAKE, AND DIG OUT A MOUTHFUL
OF RICH, VALUABLE
EXHILARATION.
THE FIRST BITE IS ALWAYS
INTOXICATING, BUT DELIGHTFUL.
SO PACE YOURSELF, AND ENJOY
YOUR CHOCOLATE CAKE
WITH CHOCOLATE FILLING
AND CHOCOLATE GLAZE.
[applause]

Missus UJ appears on screen with a 13-year-old boy with short brown hair and wearing a large blue shirt.

Missus UJ says THIS IS JOSEPH SUSSMAN, AND
HE KNOWS MORE THAN ANY OTHER
STUDENT I HAVE HOW IMPORTANT
IT IS TO BUILD YOUR CONFIDENCE
WHEN LEARNING HOW TO SPEAK.
AND HE'S GOT A VERY
SPECIAL TALK FOR US TODAY.

Joseph says THE TOPIC I HAVE CHOSEN TO
DO MY SPEECH ON IS SPECIAL
FOR A REASON.
NOBODY IN THIS ROOM COULD DO
THE SAME TOPIC AS WELL AS ME.
I AM VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE,
AND I'VE HAD 13 YEARS OF
FIRSTHAND EXPERIENCE.
AS A MATTER OF FACT, YOU
CAN EVEN SAY I'M AN EXPERT.
YOU'RE PROBABLY WONDERING
WHAT IT COULD BE?
SO I WON'T LEAVE YOU
HANGING ANY LONGER.
SO HERE IT GOES.
BEING DEAF.
IF YOU LOOK UP THE WORD DEAF
IN THE DICTIONARY, YOU WILL
FIND THIS DEFINITION.
BEING DEAF MEANS PARTLY OR
COMPLETELY UNABLE TO HEAR.
IN MY OWN WORDS, BEING DEAF
MEANS NOT BEING ABLE TO HEAR.
I CAN TELL YOU IT IS VERY
IMPORTANT TO COMMUNICATE WITH
PEOPLE EVERYWHERE, NO
MATTER WHO THEY ARE.
BEING DEAF IS NO DIFFERENT.
REALLY, THERE IS
NOTHING TO BE AFRAID OF.
IMAGINE THE WORLD
WITHOUT SOUNDS.
IMAGINE NOT HEARING THE
ALARM CLOCK GOING OFF
IN THE MORNING.
IMAGINE NOT HEARING
THE CAR HORN BEEPING
OR THE MUSIC PLAYING.
THE ONLY THING THAT YOU CAN
HEAR IS THE VIBRATION FROM
THUNDERSTORMS, LOUD MUSIC, OR
EVEN SIRENS FROM AMBULANCE,
POLICE CARS OR FIRE TRUCKS.
BUT IT'S NOT ALL THAT BAD.
THERE ARE MANY ADVANTAGES.
EVERY TIME I GET INTO BED, I
HAVE NO PROBLEM BECAUSE I AM
GUARANTEED A GOOD NIGHT
SLEEP UNDISTURBED BY NOISE.
IF THERE IS A BIG LINEUP AT
A PLAY OR MOVIE, I HAVE NO
PROBLEM GETTING GOOD SEATS.
I JUST GO TO THE FRONT OF THE
LINE AND SAY I NEED A GOOD
SEAT SO I AM ABLE TO HEAR.
SOMETIMES MY TEACHERS FORGET
TO TURN OFF THE FM SYSTEM
AND I HEAR STUFF THAT I'M
NOT SUPPOSED TO HEAR.
HOWEVER, I CAN'T TELL
YOU THOSE SECRETS NOW.
BUT FOR ONE DOLLAR, I WILL
DISCUSS THEM PRIVATELY LATER.
WHEN MY MUM GETS MAD AT ME
AND STARTS YELLING, IT'S NO
PROBLEM, I JUST FLICK
OFF MY HEARING AID
AND PRETEND I CAN HEAR HER.
EVERY TIME I GO OUT FOR DINNER
TO A RESTAURANT, I CAN LIP
READ VERY WELL.
I KNOW EVERYTHING THAT'S
GOING ON AT THE NEXT TABLE.
BESIDES LIP READING, THERE
ARE TECHNOLOGIES THAT HELP
HARD-OF-HEARING OR DEAF PEOPLE.
A HEARING AID CAN
MAKE SOUNDS LOUDER.
HEARING AIDS WENT FROM BEING
SO OBVIOUS AND UGLY TO
ALMOST INVISIBLE.
YOU CAN GET SOME THAT ARE
VERY SMALL AND CAN FIT
INTO YOUR EARS.
YOU CAN GET THEM IN
DIFFERENT COLOURS, TOO.
SOME PEOPLE ASK ME
WHAT IS THIS THING?
WELL, I'LL LET YOU IN
ON ONE OF MY SECRETS.
IT IS A SMALL WALKIE-TALKIE
WHICH IS PROGRAMMED BY THE
FBI, WHICH STANDS FOR FEDERAL
BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION.
ACTUALLY, AN FM MAKES THE
SPEAKER'S VOICE LOUDER
AND CLEARER.
I HAVE GIVEN YOU MANY
INTERESTING IDEAS ABOUT
BEING DEAF THAT YOU
NEVER KNEW BEFORE.
HERE'S ONE MORE.
HOW MANY OF YOU CAN TELL
ME WHO WAS THE FIRST DEAF
BASEBALL PLAYER TO PLAY IN THE
PROFESSIONAL LEAGUE AND WAS
A KEY TO UMPIRES USING
BALL, STRIKE AND SAFE?
HIS NAME WAS DUMMY HOY.
THEY CALLED HIM DUMMY
BECAUSE HE COULDN'T SPEAK,
NOT BECAUSE HE WAS DUMB.
WITHOUT HIM, HOW WOULD
WE EVER ENJOY BASEBALL?
DEAF PEOPLE MAY NOT HEAR
EVERYTHING YOU HEAR,
BUT THEY CAN ACCOMPLISH
ANYTHING IF THEY TRY.
THEY SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE
ANY OTHER PEOPLE POSITIVELY.
THANK YOU FOR
LISTENING TO MY SPEECH.

Missus UJ says WAY TO GO.
WONDERFUL!
[applause]

Back on screen Missus UJ says WEREN'T THOSE TERRIFIC TALKS?
NOW, I'LL BE WAITING FOR
SOME OF YOU TO CALL IN NOW.
I'M LOOKING FOR WHAT WERE SOME
OF THE TOPICS THAT THE GRADE
SEVENS HAD SELECTED.
AND WHAT ABOUT THEIR SPEECHES
MADE THEM SO EFFECTIVE?
NOW, THESE KIDS HAVE BEEN
WORKING -- THEY WORKED ON
THESE SPEECHES FOR
A LITTLE WHILE.
BUT WE REALLY FOCUSSED ON,
WHEN WE WERE DOING OUR GRADE
SEVEN SPEECHES, THAT IT
HAD TO HAVE A VERY GOOD
INTRODUCTION, IT HAD TO
HAVE A VERY STRONG BODY,
AND A LOGICAL ORDER WITH
LOTS OF INFORMATION,
AND A WONDERFUL CONCLUSION.
NOW YOU DIDN'T GET TO SEE
ALL THE INTRODUCTIONS AND
CONCLUSIONS FOR ALL OF THEM,
BUT I'M SURE YOU WILL AGREE
THAT THE BODY OF THEIR
SPEECHES WERE CERTAINLY FILLED
WITH LOTS OF ANECDOTES AND
STORIES, AND THAT'S WHAT MAKES
THE SPEECH SO INTERESTING.
OKAY, ELGIN AVENUE,
GOOD MORNING.
HI.
WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Angela says ANGELA.

Missus UJ says JUSTIN?

Angela says ANGELA.

Missus UJ says OH, HI ANGELA.
WHAT WERE SOME OF THE TOPICS
OF THE GRADE SEVEN SPEECHES
THAT YOU HEARD?

Angela says EL NINO.

Missus UJ says YES.
YOU'LL HAVE TO SPEAK UP.
I CAN'T QUITE HEAR YOU.

Angela says STEALING OR A THIEF.

Missus UJ says YES.
THE ONE ON THEFT.
THAT WAS A GOOD ONE.
YES.
ANYTHING ELSE?

Angela says AND A CAKE.

Missus UJ says YES, BAKING A CAKE.
THERE'S AN ORIGINAL ONE.
AND THE LAST ONE?
JOSEPH'S ON BEING DEAF.

Angela says YEAH.

Missus UJ says GREAT, GREAT.
WAS THERE SOMETHING EFFECTIVE
ABOUT ANY ONE OF THOSE
SPEECHES THAT YOU THOUGHT?

Angela says THEIR TONE IN THEIR VOICE.

Missus UJ says GOOD.
THANKS FOR CALLING IN.
GOOD, OKAY, THERE WE HAVE
THE TOPICS, AND WE'VE GOT THE
FIRST IDEA IS THE TONE IN
THEIR VOICE IS VERY EFFECTIVE.
OKAY, USBORNE, GOOD MORNING.
WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Adam says ADAM.

Missus UJ says HI, ADAM.
HOW, WHAT WAS IT YOU THOUGHT
WAS EFFECTIVE ABOUT THE GRADE
SEVEN SPEECHES YOU SAW?

Adam says THE WAY THEY SPOKE
ABOUT THEIR SPEECHES.

Missus UJ says GOOD.
CAN YOU TELL ME A
LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT?
CAN YOU GIVE ME A LITTLE
DETAIL ON WHAT YOU MEAN?

Adam says THEY WERE
ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT IT.

Missus UJ says GOOD, GOOD.
NOW, THE WHOLE IDEA ABOUT
DOING A SPEECH IS TO GET YOUR
AUDIENCE INTERESTED.
SO IF YOU TALK LIKE A ROBOT,
NO ONE IS GOING TO BE
LISTENING TO YOU.
SO THEIR VOICES WERE
VERY EXPRESSIVE.
GOOD.
THANKS FOR CALLING IN.
OKAY, I THINK -- IT'S
INTERESTING WITH ALL THE
DIFFERENT TOPICS HOW PEOPLE
CAN BE SO EXPRESSIVE ABOUT
DIFFERENT THINGS.
HI, ELGIN AVENUE,
GOOD MORNING.

Paul says HI.

Missus UJ says WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Paul says PAUL.

Missus UJ says HI, PAUL.
WHAT DID YOU THINK WAS
EFFECTIVE ABOUT THE
GRADE SEVEN TALKS?

Paul says WELL, THEY KIND OF ASKED
YOU QUESTIONS AND STUFF
TO TRY TO GET YOU INTO IT.

Missus UJ says OKAY.
YOU MEAN THE ONES AT THE END
OR THE ONES AT THE BEGINNING?

Paul says WELL, THE VERY FIRST
ONE THEY ASKED QUESTIONS.

Missus UJ says GOOD, GOOD.
THAT WAS VERY EFFECTIVE.
THANKS FOR CALLING IN.

Paul says ALL RIGHT.

Missus UJ says I HOPE SOME OF YOU ARE
WRITING ALL THESE IDEAS DOWN.
MAYBE AT THE BOTTOM
OF YOUR AGENDA.
I'M SURE IT'S ALMOST
FILLED RIGHT NOW.
BUT WRITING DOWN ALL THE
DIFFERENT WAYS TO MAKE
A SPEECH EFFECTIVE.
THAT SHOULD BE DOWN ON
THAT AGENDA OF YOURS.
HI, GOOD MORNING.

Jessica says HELLO.

Missus UJ says HI, THIS IS USBORNE?
WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?
GOOD MORNING?

Jessica says JESSICA.

Missus UJ says HI, JESSICA.
WHAT DID YOU THINK WAS SPECIAL
OR EFFECTIVE ABOUT THE SPEECHES?

Jessica says I LIKED THE ONE
ABOUT THE DEAF.

Missus UJ says JOSEPH'S SPEECH AT THE END.
GOOD.
AND WHAT DID YOU LIKE
ABOUT HIS SPEECH?

Jessica says I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT
WOULD BE LIKE TO BE DEAF,
AND IT SORT OF INFORMED ME.

Missus UJ says GOOD, GOOD.
IT WAS VERY INFORMATIVE.
AND I THINK THE NICE THING TOO
ABOUT JOSEPH'S IS HE SPOKE
FROM THE HEART.
AND SOMETIMES, WHEN YOU ARE
GIVING A SPEECH, IF YOU TELL
HOW THINGS ARE IMPORTANT TO
YOU, THEN I THINK WHEN THE
PEOPLE ARE LISTENING TO YOU,
THEY, TOO, WILL BE VERY
INTERESTED, JUST AS
YOU WERE IN JOSEPH'S.
THANK FOR CALLING IN.
I'M SURE JOSEPH WILL DO VERY
WELL, AS THE OTHERS WILL,
AT OUR CONTEST ON WEDNESDAY.
OKAY, WE HAVE SOME TIME
FOR SOME MORE QUESTIONS.
DON'T BE AFRAID, IF YOU WANT
A QUESTION OR TALK ABOUT THE
DRAMA PRESENTATIONS, OR
ABOUT ANY OF THE OTHER
PRESENTATIONS, YOU MAY HAVE
HAD A QUESTION THAT DIDN'T
GET ANSWERED EARLIER
ON IN THE SHOW.
SO DON'T BE AFRAID TO CALL IN
WITH ANY OF THOSE QUESTIONS.
GOOD MORNING, JACK MINOR.

Jen says HELLO.

Missus UJ says HI.
WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Jen says JEN.

Missus UJ says HI, JEN.
WHAT DID YOU FEEL WAS
SOMETHING EFFECTIVE, OR
SPECIAL ABOUT THE
GRADE SEVEN TALKS?

Jen says EXPRESSION.

Missus UJ says GOOD.
EXPRESSION.
WHAT KIND OF EXPRESSION?

Jen says HAPPY EXPRESSIONS.

Missus UJ says GOOD.
SO YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT
A FACIAL EXPRESSION?

Jen says YES.

Missus UJ says GOOD.
NOW, THE OTHER THING YOU
DIDN'T GET TO SEE, AND THAT'S
BECAUSE THEY HAD TO SPEAK INTO
THE CAMERA, BECAUSE THEY WERE
TALKING TO YOU, THIS MORNING,
BUT ANOTHER WAY WHEN YOU ARE
DOING A SPEECH, OFTEN I LOOK
AT EYE CONTACT, AND MOVING
AROUND FROM SORT OF BRINGING
EVERYONE IN WITH YOUR TALK.
SO THEY HAD TO, WHEN THEY ARE
SPEAKING IN THE CLASSROOM,
I ENCOURAGE THEM TO GIVE THAT
SAME EXPRESSION TO EVERYONE,
AND KIND OF BRING EVERYONE IN.
SO THAT WAS GOOD.
EXPRESSION IS A VERY GOOD WAY
OF MAKING AN EFFECTIVE TALK.
THANKS FOR CALLING IN.

Jen says Missus UJ?

Missus UJ says YES?

Jen says I'D LIKE TO SAY THAT ME
AND ERIC LOVE YOUR SHOW.

Missus UJ says OH, DO YOU?
OH, THANK YOU.
THANK YOU.
WELL, ARE YOU GOING TO SEND
SOME MORE THINGS IN TO ME?

Jen says YEAH.

Missus UJ says THAT WOULD BE GREAT.
BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE A VIRTUAL
CHALLENGE THIS WEEK BECAUSE
IT WAS ON PRESENTATIONS, WHAT
I'D LIKE EVERYONE TO DO OUT
THERE IS IF YOU HAVE
SOMETHING YOU HAVEN'T SENT IN,
PERHAPS SOMETHING ON THE
WORM SHOW, OR THE ALLIGATOR
SHOW, ANYTHING FROM THE WHOLE
SERIES, IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING
YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEND IN TO
ME, NEXT WEEK I'M GOING TO
REVIEW THE WHOLE SERIES, AND
I AM GOING TO ASK YOU TO CALL
IN AND TALK ABOUT ALL YOUR
FAVOURITE STUFF, OR IF YOU'VE
SPENT SOMETHING IN TO ME THAT
YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY, I'LL BE
SHOWCASING IT NEXT WEEK
IN A LOT OF DETAIL.
OKAY, THANKS FOR CALLING IN.
WE CAN STILL TAKE
SOME MORE CALLERS.
I'D BE VERY HAPPY TO STAY
FOR ANOTHER TEN MINUTES.
HI, GOOD MORNING.

Julie says HI.

Missus UJ says HI.
WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Julie says JULIE.

Missus UJ says HI, JULIE.
WHAT DID YOU FIND SPECIAL THIS
MORNING IN THE PRESENTATIONS?

Julie says THEY HAD HUMOUR
IN THEIR SPEECHES.

Missus UJ says GOOD.
CAN YOU THINK OF
ONE IN PARTICULAR?
CAN YOU GIVE ME AN
EXAMPLE OF HUMOUR?

Julie says THE LAST SPEAKER, HE SAID,
LIKE, IF HIS MUM IS YELLING
AT HIM, HE DOESN'T HAVE
TO LISTEN TO HER.

Missus UJ says I KNOW.
ISN'T THAT GREAT?
AND THE THING IS THAT JOSEPH
IS A PRETTY FUNNY GUY.
AND THAT LITTLE FM SPEAKER, HE
CALLED IT FBI, ACTUALLY I WEAR
THAT WHEN HE COMES TO MY
CLASS SO THAT HE CAN HEAR ME.
BUT I THINK IT WAS VERY FUNNY
THE WAY HE TURNS THINGS OFF.
BUT THE THING IS HE DOES HEAR
A LOT OF STUFF IN THE SCHOOL.
AND QUITE OFTEN, IF I WANDER
AWAY SOMEWHERE IN THE
BUILDING, AND I WON'T MENTION
WHERE, AND I COME BACK,
JOSEPH'S OFTEN LAUGHING
BECAUSE HE'S BEEN HEARING A
LOT OF THINGS HE PROBABLY
SHOULDN'T HAVE HEARD.
SO I THINK TALKING ABOUT THE
ADVANTAGES WAS A GOOD IDEA,
DIDN'T YOU?
THAT WAS GREAT.
THANKS FOR CALLING IN.

Julie says BYE.

Missus UJ says OKAY, WE STILL HAVE SOME
MORE TIME TO HEAR SOME MORE.
AND IF YOU WANT TO TALK
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT --
HERE'S JACK MINOR.
GOOD MORNING.
HI, WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Aaron says AARON.

Missus UJ says HI, AARON.
WHAT MADE THE GRADE SEVEN
TALKS SPECIAL TO YOU?

Aaron says PARDON?

Missus UJ says WAS THERE SOMETHING SPECIAL
ABOUT THE GRADE SEVEN SPEECHES?

Aaron says THEY WERE REALLY
GOOD AT SAYING THEM.

Missus UJ says YES, THEY WERE VERY
GOOD AT SAYING THEM.
HAVE YOU HAD TO DO A SPEECH
IN YOUR CLASS THIS YEAR?

Aaron says YEAH.

Missus UJ says AHA.
AND HOW DID YOU FEEL
ABOUT YOUR SPEECH?

Aaron says I DIDN'T LIKE IT.

Missus UJ says YOU DIDN'T LIKE IT?
WHAT DIDN'T YOU LIKE ABOUT IT?

Aaron says IT WAS REALLY CRAPPY.

Missus UJ says OKAY.
NOW, DID YOU PICK SOME THINGS
UP TODAY THAT YOU COULD USE
FOR NEXT TIME WHEN YOU
HAVE TO DO A SPEECH?

Aaron says YEAH.

Missus UJ says WHAT DID YOU PICK UP TODAY
THAT YOU COULD PASS ON
AND DO THAT NEXT YEAR?

Aaron says HOW TO WORD IT BETTER.

Missus UJ says GOOD, OKAY.
I THINK GETTING IT
ORGANIZED IS A GOOD IDEA.
WE ALWAYS START
WITH AN OUTLINE.
SO YOU HAVE AN INTRODUCTION,
AND THE BODY, AND YOU HAVE A
VERY GOOD, LOGICAL ORDER.
AND TRY TO INCLUDE
ANECDOTES AND STORIES,
JUST LIKE JOSEPH DID.
THAT MAKES IT INTERESTING TO
KIND OF GET THROUGH THE CONTENT.
SO THANKS FOR CALLING IN.
GOOD LUCK NEXT YEAR
WITH YOUR SPEECH.

Aaron says OKAY, BYE.

Missus UJ says THAT'S THE HARD
PART, GETTING IT DOWN.
AND SOME OF THE KIDS --
HI, GOOD MORNING, USBORNE.
HI, WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Zoey says ZOEY.

Missus UJ says HI, ZOEY.
DID YOU HAVE A QUESTION,
OR DID YOU WANT TO
CONTRIBUTE SOMETHING?

Zoey says PARDON?

Missus UJ says DID YOU HAVE A QUESTION?

Zoey says A COMMENT.

Missus UJ says GOOD, OKAY.
WHAT IS YOUR COMMENT?
ABOUT THE GRADE SEVEN TALKS?

Zooey says YEAH.

Missus UJ says OKAY.
WHAT MADE THEM SO SPECIAL?

Zoey says THEIR FACIAL EXPRESSIONS.

Missus UJ says THEY DO.
THEY SHOW IT IN THEIR VOICE
AND IN THEIR FACE, DON'T THEY?

Zoey says YEAH.

Missus UJ says DID YOU DO A TALK THIS YEAR?

Zoey says PARDON?

Missus UJ says DID YOU HAVE TO DO
A TALK THIS YEAR?
A FORMAL TALK LIKE THAT?

Zoey says YEAH.

Missus UJ says WHAT WAS YOUR TOPIC?

Zoey says ABOUT MY TRIP.

Missus UJ says OH, THAT'S A
GOOD TOPIC TO DO.
NOW, DID YOU PICK SOMETHING UP
TODAY THAT IF YOU HAD TO DO
THAT AGAIN THAT YOU MIGHT DO
IT A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENTLY?

Zoey says YEAH.

Missus UJ says WHAT WOULD YOU DO DIFFERENTLY
AFTER TODAY'S SHOW?

Zoey says SAY IT CLEARER.

Missus UJ says OKAY, SO SPEAKING CLEARLY.
I KNOW SOMETIMES MY GRADE
SEVENS GET GOING LIKE
CHOO-CHOO TRAINS, AND THEY
START OFF SLOWLY AND KEEP
GOING FASTER, FASTER,
FASTER, FASTER, FASTER.
SO SPEAKING SLOWLY AND
CLEARLY, THAT'S GOOD.
OKAY, THANKS FOR CALLING IN.
BYE.
WE STILL HAVE SOME TIME
FOR SOME MORE CALLS.
DON'T WORRY, WE'LL
TRY TO GET TO YOU.
GOOD MORNING, JACK MINOR.

Mark says HELLO.

Missus UJ says HI.
WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Mark says MARK.

Missus UJ says HI, MARK.
DID YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT
THE GRADE SEVEN TALKS?
WHAT MADE THEM SO SPECIAL?

Mark says THEY WERE GOOD SPEECHES.

Missus UJ says YES.
WHAT WAS GOOD ABOUT THEM?
WAS THERE SOMETHING SPECIAL
ABOUT ANY ONE OF THEM YOU LIKED?

Mark says THEY WERE INTERESTING TOPICS.

Missus UJ says GOOD FOR YOU.
I'M GLAD YOU CONTRIBUTED THAT.
'COS I THINK THAT'S THE
HARDEST PART OF DOING A SPEECH
IS TO PICK A TOPIC.
AND EVERY YEAR I MAKE ALL OF
MY GRADE SEVENS, WE ALWAYS
DO PUBLIC SPEAKING.
AND PICKING A TOPIC
IS REALLY IMPORTANT.
SO YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE THE
TOPIC HAS TO BE MEANINGFUL
TO YOU.
FOR EXAMPLE, ERICA
DID HERS ON THEFT.
YOU COULD SEE SHE WAS
REALLY KEEN ABOUT THAT.
AND YOU COULD TELL THAT
WHEN SHE TALKED ABOUT IT.
AND JOSEPH, YOU KNOW, THE
FACT HE IS DEAF, THIS IS VERY
MEANINGFUL TO HIM, TO
EXPRESS HOW IMPORTANT IT IS
TO COMMUNICATE.
SO PICKING A TOPIC
IS KEY TO A SPEECH.
IF YOU ARE ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT
YOUR TOPIC, YOU ARE GOING TO
BE ABLE TO EXPRESS
THAT TO EVERYONE ELSE.
I'M GLAD YOU CALLED IN THAT
IDEA, THAT THE TOPICS
WERE INTERESTING.
NOT ONLY TO US, THE
AUDIENCE, BUT TO THEM.
SO THANKS FOR CALLING IN.
HI, USBORNE.
GOOD MORNING.
HI, WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?
PICK UP THE PHONE, USBORNE.
HELLO?
OKAY, WE'LL GO ON -- GOOD
MORNING, JACK MINOR.
HELLO, GOOD MORNING.

Eric says HI.

Missus UJ says HI.
WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Eric says ERIC.

Missus UJ says HI, ERIC.
DID YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE
GRADE SEVEN TALKS OR ANYTHING
ELSE ON THE PROGRAM ON
MAKING PRESENTATIONS?

Eric says SURE DO.

Missus UJ says OKAY.
WHAT WOULD YOU
LIKE TO TALK ABOUT?

Eric says ABOUT THE SPEAKERS, AND HOW
THEY TALKED ABOUT THINGS,
AND USE ROLE-PLAYING TO
MAKE IT MORE EFFECTIVE.

Missus UJ says GOOD, GOOD.
WHAT DID YOU PICK UP TODAY
THAT YOU THINK YOU CAN TAKE
AWAY AND USE NEXT TIME YOU
HAVE TO MAKE A PRESENTATION?

Eric says A LOT OF ACTIONS, AND
ROLE-PLAYING AND COSTUMES.

Missus UJ says GOOD, GOOD.
WHICH COSTUME DID YOU THINK
WAS REALLY EFFECTIVE?

Eric says UM, THE JEWISH BOY.

Missus UJ says YES, JESSE.
TALKING ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST.
HE DIDN'T REALIZE WHEN HE DID
HIS BIOGRAPHY DAY, THAT HE
WAS GOING TO HAVE TO
ACTUALLY BE THAT PERSON.
SO AFTER HE READ THE BOOK AND
I TOLD HIM HE HAD TO COME
DRESSED AS TINA TURNER,
THAT COSTUME WAS A SMASH.
HE WAS IN A HUGE WIG, AND HE
HAD A VERY TIGHT DRESS ON.
AND HE HAD HIGH HEELED SHOES.
AND HE SORT OF CAME INTO THE
CLASSROOM AND PUT ON THE MUSIC
AND DID THE LIP SYNC.
I THINK HE'LL REMEMBER THAT
FOR MANY YEARS TO COME.
AND SO WILL ALL THE KIDS
IN THAT GRADE SEVEN CLASS.
HE JUST LOVES TO
GET INTO COSTUME.
AND YES, HE DID A VERY FINE
JOB OF HIS HOLOCAUST STORY
TELLING ALSO, WHICH
WAS WONDERFUL.

Eric says THAT WOULD BE REALLY FUNNY.

Missus UJ says CERTAINLY, THE TINA TURNER
WAS CERTAINLY PRETTY FUNNY.
SO MAYBE YOU COULD TAKE THAT
IDEA BACK TO YOUR CLASSROOM,
AND MAYBE YOU COULD
HAVE A BIOGRAPHY DAY.
IT'S LOTS OF FUN.
OKAY, THANKS FOR CALLING IN.

Eric says ME AND JEN STILL
LOVE YOUR SHOW.

Missus UJ says OH, YOU DO?
THANK YOU VERY MUCH
FOR SAYING THAT.
I APPRECIATE THAT.

Eric says BYE.

Missus UJ says OKAY, WE STILL HAVE A COUPLE
OF MINUTES IF THERE ARE ANY
CALLS -- HELLO, JACK MINOR?

Mike says HELLO.

Missus UJ says HI.
WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Mike says MIKE.

Missus UJ says HI, MIKE.
DID YOU HAVE A
COMMENT OR A QUESTION?

Mike says YEAH.

Missus UJ says DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT
THE GRADE SEVEN TALKS OR
THE SPEECHES AT THE END?

Mike says YEAH.

Missus UJ says OKAY.
SO DID YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE
ONE OR ONE YOU THOUGHT
SOMETHING YOU'VE PICKED UP TO
MAKE A PRESENTATION EFFECTIVE?

Mike says FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE.

Missus UJ says IT WAS EFFECTIVE THEY
KNEW SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
LET'S THINK ABOUT
ERICA'S ON THEFT.
HOW COULD YOU APPLY YOUR
COMMENT TO HER SPEECH?

Mike says I DON'T KNOW.

Missus UJ says OKAY.
WELL, SHE HAD FIRSTHAND
KNOWLEDGE ON THEFT, RIGHT?
'COS SOMETHING HAD
BEEN STOLEN FROM HER.
SO BECAUSE SOMETHING HAD BEEN
STOLEN FROM HER, SHE HAD
FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE, AND THAT
REALLY HELPED HER IN HOW SHE
WAS ABLE TO EXPRESS IT WITH
SUCH MEANING BECAUSE SHE
REALLY FELT STRONGLY ABOUT IT.
OKAY, THANKS FOR CALLING IN.
I THINK WE HAVE TIME
FOR TWO MORE CALLS.
HI, USBORNE.

Mike says YEAH.

Missus UJ says HI, GOOD MORNING.
WHO AM I SPEAKING TO?

Mike says MIKE.

Missus UJ says HI, MIKE.
DID YOU HAVE A
COMMENT OR QUESTION?

Mike says COMMENT.

Missus UJ says OKAY, GREAT.
WHAT DID YOU WANT
TO TALK ABOUT?

Mike says EXPERT TESTIMONY.

Missus UJ says OKAY.
DO YOU WANT TO EXPLAIN
THAT A LITTLE BIT?

Mike says FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE.

Missus UJ says OKAY.
SO YOU THINK THAT WOULD MAKE
AN EFFECTIVE PRESENTATION,
HAVING FIRSTHAND
KNOWLEDGE AT SOMETHING?

Mike says YEAH.

Missus UJ says I THINK THAT'S TRUE.
CAN YOU THINK OF A TALK THAT
YOU SAW THIS MORNING THAT
SOMEBODY HAD
FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE?

Mike says BEING DEAF.

Missus UJ says OKAY, YES.
THAT WAS A VERY EFFECTIVE ONE.
WHEN YOU ARE LISTENING TO
SOMEONE LIKE JOSEPH WHO IS
TELLING WHAT IT'S LIKE
FIRSTHAND, IT REALLY DOES MAKE
A VERY EFFECTIVE SPEECH.
DID YOU DO A TALK THIS YEAR?

Mike says YEAH.

Missus UJ says WHAT WAS YOUR TOPIC?

Mike says CAMP.

Missus UJ says GREAT.
DID THAT HAVE
SOME HUMOUR IN IT?

Mike says YEAH.

Missus UJ says DID YOU PICK UP SOMETHING
TODAY YOU COULD TAKE AWAY WHEN
YOU DO A SPEECH THE NEXT TIME?
HOW WOULD YOU IMPROVE YOURS?

Mike says NOT LISTENING TO PEOPLE, AND
NOT GET PEOPLE TO LAUGH AT ME.
SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE --

Missus UJ says TRYING NOT TO BE --
YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT.
THEY SHOULDN'T BE LAUGHING
WHEN YOU ARE DOING YOUR
SPEECH ANYWAY.
BECAUSE DOESN'T EVERYONE IN
THE CLASS HAVE TO DO ONE?

Mike says YES.

Missus UJ says YEAH, SO THEY SHOULD KNOW IF
THEY HAVE TO GET UP THERE,
THEY WOULDN'T WANT SOMEONE
TO DO THAT TO THEM, RIGHT?

Mike says YEAH.

Missus UJ says SO THAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT.
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR
SPEECH NEXT TIME,
AND NICE TALKING TO YOU.
THANKS FOR CALLING IN.

Mike says YOU'RE WELCOME.

Missus UJ says OKAY.
I THINK THAT'S ALL
THE TIME WE HAVE.
THAT'S A WRAP FOR TODAY.
AND WE'LL LOOK
FORWARD TO NEXT WEEK.
I'M JUST GOING TO PUT UP MY
FAX NUMBER FOR ALL OF YOU
SO YOU CAN SEE.
AND PLEASE FAX ME ANY WORK
THAT YOU HAVE FROM LAST, FROM
ANY OF THE SHOWS THAT WE HAVE
DONE IN LANGUAGE ALIVE, AND
WE ARE GOING TO REVIEW NEXT
WEEK AND SHOWCASE, AND I WANT
TO BRING SOME OF THE THINGS
BACK ON SET OF THINGS KIDS
HAVE SENT IN.
OKAY, THE NUMBER IS:
416 484-2609
WRITE THAT DOWN ON YOUR AGENDA,
I'LL LOOK FORWARD TO ANYTHING
YOU'RE GOING TO BE SENDING ME.
AND I'LL REALLY LOOK FORWARD
TO SEEING YOU NEXT WEEK.
SO BYE FOR NOW.
