Icebreaker/Informative Speech

Please reflect on your first speech by writing one well-written and thought out paragraph. Upper class students should be writing paragraphs with compound and complex sentences that are a minimum of six sentences long. Use complete sentences and correct grammar. 

Things to consider (you do not need to include all of them)

  • Eye Contact
  • Nervousness
  • Audience Feedback
  • Preparation (Enough? Not enough? What will you change for next time?)
  • Voice (Rate and Variation)
  • Gestures
  • Poise
  • Confidence level
  • Introduction 
  • Conclusion (Did we know you were done?)
  • Organization

What went well? What do you need to work on? Be as specific as possible. 

Please leave feedback for at least two of your classmates. Feedback should be constructive, original, and well-written. You may give extra feedback for extra credit.
Reflection: 20 points/ Feedback: 10 points each

Welcome to Speech 2nd Semester

It was so nice to get to know you today! One FUN FACT about me is that I am less nervous to give a speech in a costume, than I am as "me."

I hope you enjoy speech class and I look forward to see how much you grow this semester!
