The purpose of this thesis is to organize and define a functional sixth grade speech curriculum. This curriculum includes working units for the informative, demonstrative, and persuasive types of speech. Organized packets for students to complete are included with each unit. These three speech types are also major writing focus areas in sixth grade written expression curriculum, and so this speech curriculum is reinforcing of the sixth grade languagearts standards for the state of Illinois. These units were developed and implemented during the author's volunteer and student teaching experiences in sixth grade classrooms over the course of two semesters. Adaptations such as: extended time lengths, word banks, organizational assistance, and direct instruction teaching methods were also applied to increase the success rate of students with special needs.
