Thinking Critically, Speaking Famously, and Writing Effortlessly: An Alternative Performative Public Speaking Assignment
Charlesworth, Dacia
Communication Teacher, v19 n1 p1-4 Jan 2005
Although the concepts of style and delivery occupy a significant portion of any public speaking class, students often fail to make use of stylistic devices or delivery techniques while writing and presenting their speeches. This activity invites students to critically analyze a public speech and then present the critique using their own voice along with the voice of a famous and/or historical speaker. With this activity, students are able to focus more on stylistic and delivery techniques as the famous speaker has already provided most of the written content for the assignment. A list of references and suggested readings is included.
