Grade 6

Module 5

To talk about an issue without preparation

Activity 1:

To talk about an issue with preparation
To give other learners a chance to speak

[lo 2.5.1, 1.5.1]

Each year, many people in South Africa lose their lives due to accidents on our roads. Rules of the road are extremely important to ensure that accidents are avoided. They apply to the motorists, bus drivers and taxi drivers, but also to pedestrians and cyclists. People who ignore the rules of the road can endanger the lives of themselves and others.

We are going to take a closer look at the road situation in South Africa. Your teacher will divide you into groups of four and give you four topics to discuss. Each member of the group will choose a topic to report back on to the rest of the class. This will be a chance for you to express your own opinion, as well as that of your group. Each member in the group is expected to talk for 1 - 1½ minute. Study the assessment chart below to ensure that you are aware of what your teacher will be looking for as you speak.

The topics are as follows:

  1. Causes of accidents and road deaths in South Africa.
  2. Rules of the road that we think are essential.
  3. Responsibilities of cyclists and pedestrians.
  4. How can we help to improve the situation?

Educator and Peer Assessment Chart:

Criteria 1 2 3 4
Enunciation Poor Developing, not always clear Good Excellent
Eye-contact None evident Very little evident Maintained through most of the talk Maintained throughout the talk
Pace Poor, falters often, making it difficult to follow Not consistent, frequent faltering Good flow, very little faltering Excellent flow, no faltering
Sincerity, Conviction, Enthusiasm No evidence Very little evidence during the talk Evident during most of the talk Extremely evident throughout the talk
Use of Visual aids and preparation None Very little, but starting to understand the importance Good Excellent
Use of notes Lack of notes lead to confusion Correct use still developing – very dependent on notes Good Excellent, complimented talk or excellent talk without notes
