I’ve Improved!

I gave my informative speech last week and I feel that I did ok at it. I tripped on my words a couple of times ,but other than that I did ok. I always get nervous the first 5 minutes before my speech but I’m fine once I start speaking. Choosing the topic of basketball made it very easy for me to speak because I already know the topic very well so all I had to do was research some of the facts of my speech and I was set to go.

I really enjoyed some of the other speeches as well. The one about the history of Nike was very interesting. I had no idea where the symbol came from ,but I guess I know now.

All of the speeches were really great and I think everyone enjoyed them. I think I have greatly improved on speaking as far as volume goes but I still need to work on my eye contact. I was focusing my eye sight to the center of the room during my speech and I had a couple of comments on that on my feedback sheets.

    I thought you did a good job on your informative speech and did even better on your demonstrative speech today. You made good eye contact with us and seemed very credible. I look forward to seeing even more improvement in your next speech!

    our class is hard to speak in because we are so diverse. if you can give a speech in this class then you can speak to any group. we have all come along way in our speeches we can only get better.
