Speech of Introduction

Speaking with notecards

Crafting the thesis and intro


Speaking with note cards

Speaking with Note cards

  • You are allowed to use note cards for every speech

  • You may only use small white note cards

  • No color cards. They are distracting.

  • No big note cards. They are cumbersome.

  • Note cards should be neat and in order when you get to the front of the room.


How to use notecards

How to use notecards…

  • You do not have to memorize your speech, but you should be VERY familiar with it so that you can make appropriate eye contact.

  • You should not have the whole speech on the cards, but rather notes and key phrases that guide you.

  • They are NOTE cards.


How to hold the cards

How to hold the cards…

  • Hold the cards low, right about where your ribcage begins.

  • Do not hold them up by your face. This will block both your voice and your eyes.

  • Hold them with one hand and use the other hand to flip each finished card to the bottom of the pile.


For the first speech

For the first speech…

  • Since we are not using gestures, keep the hand that is not holding the cards gently resting on the cards.

  • When we begin using gestures, you will choreograph appropriate hand gestures for the other hand.


Let s practice

Let’s practice…

  • I am going to give you each three cards.

  • On Sharepoint I posted a document with three different texts in it.

  • Choose ONE of the texts to work with.

  • You should split the text you choose up evenly amongst your three cards. Then we will take turns reading from note cards.


Every speech should have a

Every speech should have a:

  • General purpose: to inform, to persuade, to demonstrate, to explain

  • Specific Purpose: a single phrase that states precisely what a speaker hopes to accomplish

  • Central Idea: (Thesis)concise statement that sums up what you expect to say during the course of the speech


For homework

For Homework…

  • Fill out the form I’m handing out so I can approve your topic and thesis for your Speech of Introduction.
