Guest Speaker Preparation: A Cooperative Lesson

Are you planning to have a guest speaker talk to your class? Prepare in advance and help your class transform into an engaged and thoughtful audience. Before the visit, young writers work cooperatively to brainstorm what they want to learn from a particular speaker, and then prepare appropriate questions. Consider also having them practice asking these questions aloud. It'll calm their nerves for when the actual speaker is present!

Lesson Planet has helped me a lot with my previous grade levels from K-6. Now I am reinstating my membership because I know it can help me more with my middle school special education classes.
