Those First Few Days

September 30, 2010 at 10:26 am 2 comments

This speech class was something I was not looking forward to taking. The classes so far though are really a lot of fun and great. My teacher is very nice and keeps the class comfortable. I’m not as nervous about this class at all anymore. On the first day she had us talk to the people around us to get to know some of our class mates better. We all got to meet new people and it helped make us more comfortable around each other. We then read chapters 1,2, and 3. It was all about how everyone is nervous and things you need to know about giving a speech. I get very nervous when I have to give a speech it is one thing I absolutely hate to do. this class is making it a little bit easier for me though. We made posters in the class about the first three chapters to help us understand what they was talking about. It was a fun project. We had to stand in front of the class and talk about our posters. I think it is easier to stand with a few people and talk about something rather than to up there alone and all eyes are on you. We just recently read chapter 12 and it was about delivery of your speech. You need to be able to talk very well so that everyone can understand you. If they don’t know what you’re talking about it makes it hard for them to listen.
