Make Your Students Go Public through Speech.
Sawyer, Thomas M.
Students of writing can learn the principles of writing for an audience through giving speeches and lectures. This paper offers pointers to guide students in organizing and delivering oral presentations. When organizing an oral presentation, students are urged to make it short, to make the organization obvious, to make the ideas simple and vivid, and to summarize and ask for questions. In delivering their presentation, students are advised to set the stage and the audience, to use no notes but have an "insurance policy" (note cards) available, to use visual aids, and to talk loudly, slowly, and vigorously. For each of the topics discussed, the paper lists several specific suggestions to aid students in achieving the suggested objectives. (GW)
