Unit II Speech Performance 1

Speech of Introduction 

Description: Chapter 3 contains the information you will need to organize the Speech of Introduction. Speech content and topic: In this speech, you introduce yourself. Your goal is to share what is interesting about you – your skills, talents, and the events in your life that have shaped who you are.

The following list will guide you as you prepare the speech:

 Read the grading rubric. If you need clarification on any of the grading elements, please contact your professor.

 You should always stand to deliver a speech unless you are physically unable to do so, or unless you are invited to sit.

 Your speech must be no less than three minutes and no more than five minutes. Speaking outside these time limits will result in a grade penalty of five points.

 When you have recorded your speech, play it back. Listen to yourself carefully. Ensure that there are no distractions and that you listen for the main ideas. Ensure that your voice is audible, that you are clearly the center of the screen, and that your facial expressions and body language are easily seen.

 Questions should be directed to your professor prior to submitting the speech.
