Now that everyone is finished with their informative speeches, I can truly say that everyone did well and that I learned a lot. It was nice to learn more about the topics that everyone chose, but I mainly enjoyed getting to know about how they related to the person who chose the topic. Our speeches were a great way for us to see into each others’ lives to find out a person they are interested in, what their childhood was like, or their favorite hobby.

I feel that the audience did a good job responding to the speakers and providing a relaxing atmosphere for the speaker as well. I think that our next demonstrative speeches will engage the class even more and will show us more about our classmates. I’m still deciding on what my topic will be but I know that I want to do something that I can’t mess up even if I’m nervous. I also want to be very familiar with whatever I’m talking about so that I can be more personable and talk to the audience instead of giving a speech to it.

I do look forward to another chance to be able to do this though because I feel that I had my first speech a little too memorized because I practiced it several times before class and knew what wording I was going to use in some parts without having to think about it when I was actually giving my speech. I will be putting a lot of thought into my topic selection so I can improve on this and look forward to our next speeches!

    Hannah, I really think that Blake and them making you laugh before your speeches is really cute, you still focus right away and if it was me I wouldn’t be able to stop laughing. You do a great job and I love the way you have referred to a lot of things from your childhood memories. I always enjoy your speeches.

    Thanks, Sharon! I have quite a hard time stopping once they get me going. I always enjoy your speeches too because you are passionate about your topic. I especially liked your rainbow in a cup! 🙂

    do not be so nervous you speeches are always good and full of emotion. emotion in a speech is the biggest part i think. the audience can feel it and be more into your speech.
