This involves writing their script as well as considering other factors such as images and sounds to accompany their report.

This year I worked with two teachers that were having their students prepare speeches. Part of the plan was to videotape their speeches. Students had to have them written out before they could record with either the iPods or video cameras. The students were motivated to complete the task (that had to meet expectations)
