Nothing Like a Snow Day, but Back To Work? Public Speaking

Okay everybody, we had a SNOW DAY and it is time to get back to work. Although it is Tuesday, we are going to treat it like a Monday and we will be conducting public speaking in class today. 

Purpose of the Activity: Cause you to reflect on and analyze yourself, formulate an impromptu speech, and articulate your ideas verbally to your peers.

Class Activity: Take 2 minutes and select a quality or an area for your self improvement. Take another 3 minutes and draft bullet talking points for a short 2 minute impromptu speech that: 

  • Introduce yourself
  • Identifies the specific quality or area for your self improvement.
  • Explains the reason you selected that particular quality or area for self improvement. 
  • Give two specific examples of how you will improve that quality or area for self improvement.
  • Concluding statement.
You will be allowed to take notes up with you when you speak if you need to but only as a guide, not to be read from. 


No talking, you have 5 minutes before the first speaker....Get to work.
