Chick Chat

April 26, 2011 at 8:02 pm 1 comment

Hello fellow speech mates. Spring has finally arrived in the Ohio Valley and baby chicks are hatching by the basket full. I hope Mrs. Basfords’ speech class liked the Easter chicks as much as I enjoyed sharing them with my reading presentation. I must say,  it seemed a little ironic how those baby “peeps” had so much to chirp about in class. I on the other hand, ran out of words to say before my presentation time was finished.

Consequently, I did learn a valuable lesson. It is very important to critique the timing of a speech before  presenting it. This lack of attention cost me a few points. That’s okay, I realize this was my first attempt at preparing a speech and I still have a lot to learn. I hope this will be helpful advise to other beginners organizing their first speech.  Also, try to relax up in front of the classroom and have fun. We are all in this together!
