OP (Oral Presentation)
1. Topic Introduction
Our OP topics range from natural sciences to life-related topics, covering a broad spectrum including some real-time and student-life-relevant aspects. In advanced classes, we also cover deeper topics such as self-analysis, understanding oneself, handling complex interpersonal relationships, and various topics on mental health. In class, the teacher guides the students in understanding the topic, reading materials, and leading discussions to help students familiarize themselves with the topic of each class.
Purpose: This initial phase is designed to expose students to a wide variety of topics, allowing them to engage with subject matter that ranges from general to deeply personal. The teacher's guidance in introducing the topic, sharing reading materials, and fostering discussion ensures that students are well-prepared and informed for their individual speeches.
Purpose: This stage is where students delve deeper into the topic at hand. Utilizing various resources like reading materials, videos, and classroom discussions, students gather insights and formulate their own opinions. Based on the "speech ideas" provided, students prepare their speeches, ensuring they have a structured and well-thought-out presentation.
3. Speech Time
Purpose: This segment is the core of the class, where each student gives an individual presentation about their understanding, learnings, and viewpoints on the topic. It's not just an evaluative segment but also a constructive one: both peers and the teacher provide immediate feedback. Speeches are graded based on criteria like organization and structure, subject knowledge and main idea, audience awareness, and delivery. This real-time assessment allows for immediate learning and skill application.
Purpose: This post-class activity involves students watching videos of their own presentations to conduct a self-evaluation. This introspective exercise enables them to identify areas for improvement and recognize their strengths. The purpose here is to cultivate a habit of self-reflection, encouraging students to be critical thinkers and more effective communicators.
