A Note Card and a Soapbox: Agendas, Advocacy, and Extemporaneous Speaking.
McCann, Bryan John
This paper discusses the potential for advocacy in collegiate extemporaneous speaking. It argues that given the inherently civic nature of the event, extemporaneous speaking ought to address higher causes that transcend competitive restraints. Unfortunately, the potential of the event is generally hindered by stylistic trends and other competitive norms. These barriers are discussed as well as suggestions for a paradigm shift that will hopefully speak to the future course of the activity as a whole. (Contains 13 references.) (Author/RS)
