We will begin working on our first speech outline in Unit 2. You will submit your Introduction Speech in Unit 3. Below is some general information regarding the speeches. I want to make sure that everyone understands the process before we get started.
In order to save you money and time I am requesting that students record their speeches via a digital recorder. Most digital cameras and smart phones have a recording option. Once you have recorded your speech I would like for you to upload it to YouTube.com. I have had issues with students password protecting your speeches. Please leave them open and you can delete it after I grade it. You must submit the link to the YouTube.com speech along with your outline and references. The Introduction speech does not require references but the other speeches do require references.
If you are not familiar with the process of uploading to YouTube, please take a look at this video. I find that YouTube is the best way for me to view your speeches. Please make your videos Public. You can delete it when I get done grading. I tend to have issues view speeches that are set to Private. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_O7iUiftbKU
You must show me ten audience members over the age of 10 (babies and toddlers do not count). Simply pan the camera around before, during, or after the speech so that I may view the audience. Failure to show me your ten audience members will lead to a 10 point (10%) deduction on your speech. Simply put - you cannot receive an A on a speech if you have less than 10 audience members.
You must turn in a full-content outline with your speeches. We will work on outlines in the unit prior to the unit that the speech is due. For example we will complete the Introduction Speech Outline in Unit 2 (worth 30 points) for the speech that is due in Unit 3. I will provide you with a sample outline to complete for each speech. I will review your outline on Monday of Unit 3. You must submit your complete speech outline to me with your speech link submission.
You will submit your YouTube link and outline to the assignment link titled Unit 3 - Introduction Speech. When you are ready to submit your speech, provide me with your YouTube link to your speech in the Comment box. Attach your speech final outline below the comment box. Check the gradebook for your score and my comments.
