14 SPEECH DRAFT: Icebreaker Writing
IMPORTANT: This course requires you to create written assignments like drafts and critiques using your word processer, saving your work to your computer and then uploading the file and submitting it. DO NOT write your draft in Moodle. Trust me! This will avoid tears of frustration if you lose a connection to the Internet or time out and lose all of your work.
Think of a person in your life experience whom you consider to be an effective and engaging speaker/performer in front of groups of people. The person could be someone you have seen speak in front of an audience maybe as a teacher, a coach, a co-worker/boss, a faith leader or a celebrity or famous person you have viewed speaking in front of an audience. This writing will be used as your script for the Ice Breaker “Tech. Check” recording.
An effective draft will be one to two paragraphs written in complete sentences and will include:
PROPER HEADING INFORMATION
GREETING WITH YOUR NAME,
NAME OF A SPEAKER/PERFORMER WHO YOU CONSIDER TO BE EFFECTIVE AND ENGAGING
DETAILS OF WHAT MAKES THIS PERSON EFFECTIVE AND
YOUR PERSONAL GOAL OF DEVELOPING AS AN EFFECTIVE PUBLIC SPEAKER.
Click on attachment to see an example of a final draft which is ready to upload for evaluation. You may print the sample if you wish to refer to it while you write your own draft. Create your draft on your own word processing program, save to your own computer, and upload the file once you “Browse” and “Select” and “Attach” this assignment.
The goal of this DO assignment is for you to demonstrate that you can successfully upload a written assignment for evaluation. I will award 5 points for successfully uploading your Ice Breaker Draft. I am not grading the organization/quality of the writing of the draft but will see your first attempt to follow directions and to express yourself as a “WRITER.” Can’t wait to hear who you admire as a public speaker!
