speech class

October 13, 2010 at 2:30 pm 5 comments

We have recently been talking how to set up a speech’s introduction, body and conclusion. all the stuff our instructor went over with us today seemed to be extremely helpful to me!! I was completely lost at the beginning on exactly what I am doing my speech on. I had a topic in mind but the topic can be so broad that I wasn’t sure how I was going to lay it out. Bu, after listening to what Candee, our instructor told us today I am pretty sure I already have a pretty good idea on how I am going to start and end my speech. N,ow all that is left is to actually think of what to put in the body!!

At the beginning of this class I would have never expected that I would be excited to give my next speech, but  amazingly I am excited! I am certain that this  class is going to really help me get much further in life and in my career that plan to pursue after high school graduation. the feedback from our first speech really helped and it made me feel less nervous that I did horrible. Now that I know what I need to work on I’m pretty sure I will do even better  giving my next speech!

    Haha. I totally know what you mean. I had no idea about what to do or how to do it. But after listening to Candee and talking to her after class I now know what to do…mostly. Good luck on your body.

    I know how you feel, I have my topic picked out but not sure how to put together the body of the speech. After reading chapters 8 and 9 I was sure I could pull this off but I tried starting on my speech and after reading chapter 7 about giving examples I’m confused again. I’m sure I will feel better about it after class on Monday. Good luck on your speech, I’m sure you will do great.

    I agree completely too! The thought of setting up a speech seemed a little scary because there is so much to include but Candee definitely made it easier to understand so it didn’t seem that terrible! I am actually looking forward to our next speech as well which is such a strange thought because i used to be terrified of public speaking. This class has helped so much already!
