This is a great lesson!  It is very appropriate for the age group and will help students become more comfortable with public speaking.  I like how students have to make an outline to organize what they will say.  This is a tool that will help them in the future with not only planned speeches, but day to day communicating with others.  The objectives are very clear.  The evaluation is also very clear and sets expectations up front for the students to meet.  The actual lesson itself is not as clear.  it would be better if you included step by step on how you would teach the lesson and when they would have time to research and plan their speech.  I think it is great that you will have students give feedback to other students.  The meaningfulness is also one of the positives of this lesson.  Letting students choose a topic they care about will help to engage the students.  I really like that you will show a speech you did yourself and I can see how students will really be engaged in this.  Overall, this is a fantastic lesson that I would use in my classroom with some adjustments to fit the age group and skill level.
