Stepped Out of my Box and Gained Confidence

May 31, 2011 at 8:35 am 1 comment

For my visual reflection, I decided to make a box, because in the beginning I didn’t want to take this class, but I had to graduate. I was kinda in a box to say the least and never liked to get up and talk in front of people.  Now however, I am so glad that I took it! Speech class is a lot of fun and like in my reflection it has allowed me to , “step out of my box and gain confidence.” I’m no longer that nervous to get up there and give my speech. My class has helped out a lot and everyone is very supportive.

The demonstration speeches were a lot of fun and I have learned a lot. Everyone did very well. For my demonstration speech I did chocolate graduation caps since graduation is coming up. You take a miniature Reese cup and flip it upside down. You then take a dab of peanut butter and place it on top of that. Next, you take a chocolate covered graham cracker and place it on top of the Reese cup. You then put another dab of peanut butter on top of that. And last you take a fruit roll-up and cut a piece of and place it on top of the graham cracker as a tassel. It is a really quick and easy graduation party dessert.

I am really looking forward to everyone’s last speech and excited to do mine with Shayla!

    I really liked your demostrative speech. Your idea was a neat one for all graduates, high school or college. I showed my cousin how to do them, because she graduated from high school. She like it as well. Again good demo!!
