So both speech classes had the opportunity to prepare an introduction of a classmate. It was suggested that they follow the "who, what, where, when, why" format but the most important thing was getting the experience. I'm happy to say everyone did well for a starter and now that we have the ice broken we can move on to more challenging activities.
Wednesday the 1st we will take a web tour of the various online resources set up for you, then spend some time with the concept of preparing to give a speech. There will be a graded writing exercise that follows, due at our next class meeting.
I'm very pleased with the start to speech and am exciting about the unique group dynamics of each class.
