These Impromptu Speech Topic Cards - are an excellent 'collect- and-go resource' for busy classroom teachers and people working with public speaking in community groups.
In just a few minutes you could be printing them out and on your way.
There are two collections: Quotations and Proverbs. Both contain 98 Quotation or Proverb themed speech topics in a downloadable pdf formatted for printing in a plain font for easy reading.
Take a peek! The sample extract shows one page of 14 topics from the Proverb collection. The Quotation collection is formatted in exactly the same way.
These are the traditional sayings, the ones we grow up hearing*, containing snippets of advice or truths based on common sense.
- Action speaks louder than words.
- Who keeps company with the wolf will learn to howl.
- A stitch in time saves nine.
* My grandmother used them frequently. She would cock her head to one side, nod, and then out they would come. "Treacle in one eye and toffee in the other" was how she summed up one of my boyfriends who, in her mind, was far too eager to impress. "Too sweet to be trusted", she said. As it turned out she was right!
What fun you'll have with this collection of wise, witty and/or whimsical words - sayings that are well known because they perfectly capture and communicate an idea.
Here's three examples.
The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
- Dalai Lama
An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind.
- Mahatma Gandhi
Crying is for plain women. Pretty women go shopping.
- Oscar Wilde
There are 95 more of the same caliber in this set. They're guaranteed to sharpen the wits of your speakers considerably!
You can have one set for $4.75.
Or two sets for $7.50.
And they'll do it in multiple ways because:
A collection of Impromptu Speech Topic Cards frees you to focus on the activity itself rather than expending your energy on gathering the resources needed to do it.
I've pitched the selection of topics towards middle school and upwards. That is from 11 years on.
They'll also be great for adult public speaking groups, and extension ESL classes. Both sets of cards offer opportunities to explore philosophy, the nuances of idiomatic English, irony, morality, motivation and more.
I've had a lot of fun putting them together. It's been the perfect excuse to browse here, and there, and everywhere!
