The purpose of Listening Threads is to give students the opportunity to critically/constructively analyze speeches they hear and/or see. It is important to understand that opinions of what a “good speech” is can be subjective. However, most communication experts and educators claim that a “good” speech needs to contain responsible and relevant substance, easy-to-follow structure, inviting presentation, and connection to the audience.
Step 1: Review TWO Student Persuasive Speeches from the previous module (found under Persuasive Speech Submission.
Step 2: Answer the Feedback “Form” below for both speeches (complete a separate feedback for each speech). It may be a good idea to copy and paste the questions into the “reply” box and then fill in your answers. Please note, that points are awarded to answers that utilize SPECIFIC examples from the speech viewed. Simple “yes/no” will not suffice. Do not submit the Feedback Form under the speeches you watched, make sure to submit the assignment on this assignment tab!
