Class Summary - Today students stood in front of class and gave 1-2 minute speeches. Students could pick anything that they wanted to talk about. I video taped each student talking and after they watched themselves, they filled out a reflection sheet evaluating their eye contact, movement, volume etc. This is a good stepping stone to speaking in front of others which is often required in leadership and coaching situations. Then, I handed out slips of paper with different skills on them (i.e. how to tie a neck tie). Students are to learn how to do the task, and then they will be teaching their classmates how to do the task.
Objectives - Students will demonstrate how to effectively speak in front of a group. Students will reflect on their speaking.
