ELA.4.C.2.1

Present information orally, in a logical sequence, using nonverbal cues, appropriate volume, and clear pronunciation.

Clarifications

Clarification 1: Nonverbal cues appropriate to this grade level are posture, tone, expressive delivery, focus on the audience, and facial expression. Clear pronunciation should be interpreted to mean an understanding and application of phonics rules and sight words as well as care taken in delivery. A student’s speech impediment should not be considered as impeding clear pronunciation. 

Clarification 2: For further guidance, see the Elementary Oral Communication Rubric.
