Dear speech students,
I am proud of each of you. You have delivered four, formal speeches this semester and progressively improved your delivery. You are all becoming more relaxed, articulate and confident. Well done!

This last week, you finished your polished narrative speeches and were introduced to the persuasive speech model. You will be delivering your persuasive speeches the weeks of December 6 and 13 for Tuesday students, and December 8 and 15 for Thursday students. Everyone needs to be ready the first day of delivery as I will be drawing your name out of a box for the presentation order. This last speech will be graded on a 100 point scale to include 30 points for your content, 10 points for time and 60 points on locution, eye contact and poise. The speech should be 4-5 minutes in length, use of notes is recommended, and an outline is required. Your outlines are due, for 20 points, on November 29 (Tuesday) or December 1st (Thursday).

This is your chance to shine! I look forward to the culmination of our class and the pinnacle of your progress.  If you have any questions, please email me at cdavis@hayward.k12.wi.us.  

Sincerely, Miss Christy
