For a loop

July 20, 2010 at 8:45 pm 5 comments

I had trouble picking my topic for my informative speech, because my speech teacher threw me for a loop. I was ready to write my speech on the Peace Corps when she suggested that I save that topic for my persuasive speech. She felt that I was more passionate about this topic and that I would have a better chance persuading people with this subject.

I was not sure what to write about now for my informative speech. Then on Friday I remembered my teacher’s suggestion that I write about something to do with computers. Ultimately I did choose computers as my topic. I decided to do my speech on identity theft. I feel like I could have done better. I had more information to add but I was worried about time constraints. Also I did not want to use a lot of technical terms and get people lost. I got nervous and forgot some of the things that I wanted to bring up in the middle of my speech, but in all I did ok. This is one speech that I wish I could redo with more confidence and a little bit more information, I could have made a really good speech. But hindsight is 20/20 and I am not much for living in the past so I’m ok with it.

All of my classmate’s speeches were great and I learned some very interesting things. Thank you, you all did a great job.

    I thought your speech was really informative. You kept it simple enough, were everyone was able to understand the point you was trying to make.
