I would say that my overall effectiveness as a public speaker is at a high level. I don’t really have any problems with speaking in public. I do like how I feel when I’m there speaking to an audience. I understand how empowering it could be using speech in a “good” manner. While feeling this empowerment during speeches my strengths start to come out. These great qualities include the ability to capture an audience using “shock and awe”. The strength to talk to a person and look then in there eyes and know that I’m being as precise as possible and they appreciate that. I’m confident that every single time I gave a speech I pushed myself to bring all my strengths in delivering a concise and correct speech. Knowing that I’m a lot more confortable in my speeches more than other doesn’t make me forget that I am also in need of enhancing my structure so try to make my speech more fluid and dummy-proof . I can feel with sureness that every singe individual was reached by my word. An example of this was when I had my first speech about stocks. The audience gave me the “ok I’ll listen but I don’t know how far were going to get” look. After showing a cartoon video explaining the stock market followed by some “Chart Art” the crowd was no longer in fear but assured that this topic is simple and easy to digest.

Education and Future Generations
Composition II ENG1200
Dr John Kay
July 1, 2014
Low scores on SAT’s, ACT’s and National Intelligence tests are becoming increasingly obvious that America’s kids aren’t learning at the rate they should be. Some people think that this is an unfair way to judge progress since they are only given the test once a year. The curriculum guides that teachers are given at the beginning of each year is either not being used or just barely. This makes…
Lincoln showed his care for his people and his country that been struggling for years in the war.
In his speech he lets people feel they are united and lets them see hope their future through his strong persuasive appeals. Lincoln opens with “all dreaded, all sought to avert it”.

Detoxification is the key
Dr. Jane Miller, Ph.D.
It is important to reduce accumulated toxic waste every one thousand miles. The detoxification regime involves gallons of water, to be ingested slowly over at least one week. Aerobic exercise at least once a day is highly recommended. Running every other day for over an hour will reduce the week into three days. The process should be focused on an individual’s chemical nature. You should consult your doctor before beginning detoxification,…
perspective. The African Americans had been under extreme segregation and oppressed rule. They had almost no rights as a human in some of the states, even though they were promised this in The Declaration. Dr. King was trying to connect this idea in his speech and was definitely successful. Some examples he gives are that the Nation has “vaults of wealth” or vaults of freedom and the African American community deserved to cash in on the riches. He demands that the black community be given access to those…
I found an interesting speech from the earlier
black and white movie ‘To Kill a mocking bird’,
a very classic monolog
’All men are created equal’ that is very exciting,
provoking but a little bit sarcastic to all men in the court.
The speaker Atticus is an influential and powerful lawyer
who spoke with commanding authority with
his low and husky voice.
He worked incredibly hard to defend a young Negro man.
From this speech,
we could see everyone is deeply engrossed

In his pregame speech before a big game, against an even bigger opponent the new head coach of the Marshall Football team brings his players out to an emotional grave setting where six unidentified members of the 1970 Marshall team laid after being murdered by a terrible plane crash which killed the entire team. He explains to his player’s the significance of where they were and tells them that its part of their past; he states, “This is where we have been, how we got here, this is who we are today…
Complaint Speech (pet peeve or everyday nuisances)
Time Limit: 2-4 minutes Outline: Standard format as described in lecture and text. Sample outline included below. Why we are doing this:
This is a bridge from narrative to informative speaking where we use the entire speech preparation process but without the need for external research. In narrative speeches we simply relate a personal incident in the natural order of events as they occurred. We now move to another form of personal expression (complaining…
