Please reflect on your impromptu speech by writing one well-written and thought-out paragraph. Use complete sentences and correct grammar. Upper classmen should be writing paragraphs with compound and complex sentences that are a minimum of six sentences long. Things to consider (you do not need to include all of them)
- eye contact
- audience feedback
- preparation (What did you do during your 2-3 minutes--would you do the same thing? Do you have advice for future impromptu speakers?)
- Speaking Rate (too fast? too slow? too many pauses?)
- gestures (Did you do any?)
- poise and presence
- confidence level
- introduction and conclusion
- facial expressions
What went well? What do you need to work on for the next speech? Would you want to try it again or are you glad it is done forever? Be as specific as possible!
In addition, leave feedback for at least two students. Feedback should be specific and original.
