You have completed your first speech of the year. I know that for some of you this was a nerve racking experience. I'm proud of all of the students who completed the assignment. With the use of the flip cameras you will now have the opportunity to critique your speech. You will have the opportunity to see your growth in speech making through the use of this technology. I think this will be a valuable tool. I'd like you to post your video and view it. If you do not know how to do this, I have included directions.
Here are the directions on how to do this.
1. Go to your blog and open up a New Post
2. On the tool bar pick the second from the right
3. Click on browse
4. Click on the students shared drive
5. Click on Anderson
6. Click on Lunn
7. Click on Brown Bag Speech
8. Find your speech and upload it
Once it is uploaded and posted on your blog...watch it. While you are watching it, critique yourself. Look for areas that you need to improve upon. Look for areas that you did well. Were you enthusiastic? Was your voice strong? Did you slouch? Did you look confident? Etc.
You will finish the first speech assignment by journaling about the speech. How did you feel? How nervous were you? What went wrong? What went well? Where do you think you can improve? Etc.
