DISCUSS: View Recording for Required Listening Critique: What makes David’s Informative Speech Effective or Ineffective?

Please view the video before posting your initial reaction to the effectiveness or suggestions for improving the presentation.  David had basic requirements that each of you will have as you write and practice and present your own informative speech.  Re-cap of essential requirements: Engage target audience about topic, clearly state main points to be covered, use minimum of two sources for credibility, use minimum of one visual aid, and limit time to no more than 10 minutes. Ultimately, his bottom line goal is to teach, demonstrate, explain his topic for his audience in a way that is enlightening and memorable.  You are welcome to print out the Informative Speech: Grading  Evaluation Form from READING to also consult as you view his speech.  Looking forward to your comments!
