Press Conferences

"Whatcha Do...Whatcha see?"
PRESS CONFERENCES 
50 pts for list of questions and your cheat sheet on the topic
50 pts for the performance


Each Press conference is roughly kept to a minute and 1/2

Purpose: To hold press conferences and for the speaker to learn how to take and deflect questions confidently about a topic they know well, and keep up good spirits.

In The End: The class should learn about a specific instance each student in the class:

  • Saw/witnessed
  • Experienced first hand

Preparation for the Press Conference
  • Each student picks a topic and we share them on the board fo the whole class. 
  • The topics are to be kept simple in description.
  • The class generates a question to ask each classmate's topic.
  • Each student writes a short journal entry on their topic.

The Day of the Press Conferences

  • Each student goes to the podeum (with sunglasses if needed).
  • The clock is started.
  • The class becomes a sea of hands begging to be called upon.
  • Once the speaker selects a press agent the room goes quiet.
  • The question is asked, the speaker decides whether to answer or not.
  • The speaker then says "next question"
  • The process repeats until the time runs out.
