First Speech

January 26, 2011 at 11:30 am 1 comment

Well the first speech is out of the way and overall I think that I did an alright job on it. There were several things that I still need to work on though. I need to be sure  to give more eye contact to my audience. By doing this it allows the audience to hear what I am saying easier and it gives me an idea of how well my speech is going throughout my speech. Another thing that happened was that I got a little nervous and I stumbled on some words that I shouldn’t have stumbled on. I thought that the class response was good after I had completed my speech which gives me more confidence on my second speech. The class comments were also great because they gave me hints on what I should do in order to make my speeches better and they also told me what I did well which tells me that I did do some things right. Hopefully I have all of the bugs worked out for my next speech and the second speech goes more smoothly than the first went.

    I agree with this blog and want to note that eye contact is key. But it is also very hard to give eye contact when your reading something.
