First Speech

January 25, 2011 at 11:02 pm 1 comment

I thought my first speech went fairly well. I am pretty sure that I stayed in the alloted time and got a good grade so that’s all a person can ask for. In all, I thought everyone that gave their speech did a really good job and looked pretty calm. A few things that I would have changes about my speech was not to worry so much. I usually don’t get real nervous when I have to give a speech but I did this time. After a few minutes I was fine though. Another thing I would change is to just highlight and say key points to the article. This way, my speech won’t be as long. I need to try to put a little more emphasis on my speech next time too although it is fairly hard when your just doing a reading. All in all it wasn’t too bad though and I received a lot of good and helpful comments from my classmates.

    If you highlight the key points then you will be more likely not to forget them and if you don’t highlight them then your grade could potentially be affected if you overlook to many keypoints throughout your speech.
