Johnson, Orin G.
This paper presents 10 extemporaneous presentation assignments which are designed to review, test, and give students practice on every aspect necessary to become an effective public speaker in many situations. The paper begins with a description of the introductory communication course requirements and guidelines for grading of practice presentations and speech performance as well as guidelines for students' evaluations of the final formal speech assignment of the course. Each of the 10 assignments in the paper presents an explanation of the assignment, a list of requirements, and a discussion of special considerations, as well as a speech evaluation form. The first 7 assignments in the paper address informative, persuasive, special occasion, after dinner, audiovisual, nonverbal delivery, and verbal delivery speech presentation skills. The last 3 assignments in the paper are informative, persuasive, and entertainment performance presentations. A formal outline evaluation summary and grade sheet, a speech portfolio evaluation and grade sheet, and a presentation skills evaluation and grade sheet are attached. (RS)
