My Demonstative Speech

November 17, 2010 at 11:11 pm 1 comment

November 8, 2010 I gave my first demonstration speech in front of my speech class.  I truly liked this speech a lot better than all the other speech I have given in the past.  I felt very comfortable in front of the class  because this was my third speech.  The topic of my speech was how to take a soil sample.  Soil samples are taken in fall and spring of the year.  The reason farmers take soil samples is  to find out what nutrients their soil is missing  and what they need to do to get their soil Ph and their essential nutrients back into the soil.  The soil Ph is how acidic or how alkaline your soil is.  If the farmers soil is acidic they will spread acidic lime on their soil.  If their soil is in the alkaline soil range meaning that the soil is too sweet. they will spread dolomic lime on the soil. Doing this can help the farmers better understand their soil and help them save money in the long run.  Lime can help increase yields and increase fertility of the soil.  So.  I showed the class how to take a soil sample and how to read a soil sample when they get one.

    I also liked the demonstration speeches. I don’t know how interesting a soil sample can be but I would of liked to have seen your speech.
