I am quite excited to share a piece, or should I say pieces of my life with you as well as my classmates. Not to down play the obvious, I AM A NERVOUS WRECK! But, I have already chosen my symbols I am going to bring to represent my different stages in life. Do you have any tips for us as new public speakers? I just keep telling myself, I have the power therefore I am able!
The only tip you need for this first speech is that you should practice a couple of times, but you really don't need to worry about any tips because this is a really low stress speech!!
I missed class on Thursday. Can you please Inform as to what I missed in class? Thank you
On Thursday we discussed our speech due on Tuesday 9/3. It is the "Me, Myself and I" speech, otherwise known as "The Bag Speech". You need to bring in three different symbols, one that represents your past, one that represents your present and one that represents your future. You need to spend ONE MINUTE discussing each in front of the class, so your speech will be 3 minutes long NO MORE NO LESS. So practice it a couple times to make sure you meet the time period.

Hope this helps! And sorry it took me so long to get back to you!
Have a good night and good luck on Tuesday!
Thank you so much Andrea!
Will we be turning in this speech on paper as well as presenting it to the class? Or will only our presentations be graded?
There is nothing to turn in for this speech.
