Communications Developing Speech Questions

I’m working on a communications question and need guidance to help me learn.

1. What two major steps are discussed in Chapter 4 for developing your first speech (see
page 62 in textbook)? Provide examples of how you will do this in your first presentation.

2. Explain how will gain attention in your first presentation (see page 67 in textbook).

3. View a TED Talk on www.TED.com. Select a speech on a topic that interests you (include
the title and website address). As you watch the speech, answer the following questions:
(a) How well does the speaker organize his or her talk for effective communication? (b)
How does the speaker control the online environment? (c) How effective is the speaker’s
delivery as it comes across on your computer screen?

No matter what kind of introductory speech you are assigned, be sure to focus your

presentation sharply so it conforms to the assigned time limit. One of the most com-

mon mistakes students make on their first speech is trying to cover too much.

It would be impossible, for example, to tell your audience everything about your

life in a two- or three-minute speech. A better approach would be to focus on one or

two events that have helped define who you are—competing in the state track meet,

tutoring disadvantaged children, getting your first job, and the like. This allows you

to make a few well-developed points about a clearly defined subject.

On the other hand, avoid the temptation to narrow the focus of your topic too

much. Few listeners would be pleased to hear a two- or three-minute discussion of

advanced trumpet-playing techniques. Such a speech would be too specialized for

most classroom audiences.
