TEXT: The Art of Public Speaking Twelfth Edition by Stephen E. Lucas Each week you will read several chapters and have quizzes on each chapter. I encourage you to take notes on the assigned readings; you will be able to use your notes on the quizzes. During the week there will also be activities to do along the way. ATTENDANCE: Being in class is important. If you miss a quiz, take it on your own time WITH ME. NEVER take a quiz anywhere else; it will not count. ATTENDANCE ON SPEAKING DAYS: Attendance is required on speaking days. If you are scheduled to speak on a particular day, you must give your speech on that day. Failure to give your speech on your assigned day will result in a grade of 0 for that assignment. Make ups for speeches do not exist. Excused absences include: verifiable illness (with note from DOCTOR), death of a family member, and class field trips. All of these have to be documented. TARDIES: If you are tardy, you will not be able to enter the classroom without a pass. If you have a pass to enter, do not enter the room while someone is giving a speech. Enter when he/she is finished. RESPECT: Doing other work, reading, talking, or listening to an MP3 player in one ear while others (including the teacher) are speaking is unacceptable behavior it s RUDE! Take notes or feel free to ask questions. You do not have to agree with a classmate s position (RESPECT is not agreeing with everyone. It s agreeing that it s OKAY to disagree.) You can respect him/her and critique his/her speech on structure and delivery. Do not do homework or eat during speeches. A supportive environment is crucial to a successful public speaking course. Disruptions will directly affect your grade. 2 TECHNOLOGICAL DEVICES: All technological devices (cell phone, MP3 player, ipad, ipod, laptop computer, kindle, etc.) are NOT allowed in class UNLESS the teacher has specifically asked you to bring them for a particular class period. FOOD AND DRINK: You are Seniors; I don t mind as long as we re not by computer equipment, it s not distracting the class, and it s not during speeches. Beverages must be in a container with a cover. Clean up behind yourself, or this privilege will be taken away. ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: Cheating is never tolerated. Failure to cite sources on your outline or orally during your speech are forms of plagiarism. Your speech MUST be in your own words. Since this course is through UWGB, their policy regarding cheating will be followed and enforced. COST: There is a fee for UWGB credit plus a $5.00 student ID (unless you have UWGB Chemistry). This fee goes up each year. Please see Jan Wussow in the high school office to pay any fees for the course.

Strive for Perfect Attendance. Every session of your speech class is designed to help you learn the material and master the skills of public speaking. Some days will be devoted to lecture, others to class discussion or activities, still others to the presentation of speeches by you and your classmates. You will learn something important every day including the days on which you are listening to your classmates speeches. The more faithfully you attend class, the better you will do in the course. 2. Do the Assigned Readings and Do Them Ahead of Time. Your textbook and other reading materials are designed to familiarize you with the principles of effective speechmaking. When you read the assigned material ahead of time, class discussion helps reinforce your understanding of what you have read in a way that doing the reading after class (or just before the exam) cannot. 3. Learn the Language of Public Speaking. Every area of study has its own specialized language. Terms such as central idea, specific purpose, extemporaneous delivery, preparation outline, and the like are part of the language of public speaking. Be sure you know what these terms mean. 4. Participate in Class. In addition to helping you learn the material better, class participation gives you additional experience expressing your ideas in front of others. Most speech classes meet in small sections in which there is ample opportunity for discussion and sharing ideas. You owe it to yourself to take advantage of this opportunity. 5. Ask Questions. If you have no questions about the textbook, your speeches, or the class in general, you probably aren t putting much thought into the course. Asking questions is a good way to increase your understanding of the book, to help get ready for speeches, and to feel comfortable with your instructor and classmates. 6. Spend Lots of Time Working on Your Speeches. To get a sense of the time commitment required for this class, think of each major assignment as the equivalent of writing a research paper in a composition class. The process of preparing a speech includes choosing a topic, narrowing the topic and setting on a specific purpose, researching the topic, determining the main points you will develop in the speech, writing an outline of the speech and organizing it so your ideas will come across clearly and convincingly, preparing visual aids to accompany the speech, and rehearsing the speech so you can deliver it fluently and confidently. Doing this well requires a great deal of effort. The more time you spend working on your speeches, the better they will be. Many B speeches could become As with a little more work. 7. Begin Working on Your Speeches Well in Advance. Because it takes a lot of time to prepare an effective speech, it is vital that you begin working on your speeches as soon as they are assigned. This way you will be able to spend the night before your presentation fine-tuning your delivery rather than racing feverishly to prepare the content of your remarks. In addition to giving you plenty of time to work through all the stages of speech preparation, getting an early start will help you avoid the dangers of plagiarism that arise when students leave all of their speech preparation to the last minute. 8. Get Feedback on Your Speeches. Get feedback from your teacher. Most instructors are willing to look at several drafts of a speech and to make suggestions for improvement. You can also get feedback from family, friends, roommates, and classmates. They may not be able to give as much advice as your instructor, but they can tell you if you are saying um, or looking down at your notes too often. Whatever you do, take advantage of feedback that can help you become a better, more confident speaker. 4 UNIVERSITY of WISCONSIN-GREEN BAY Assignment Getting Acquainted Objective: To promote pride, self-concept and self-acceptance. Intrapersonal growth is vital to success. All of us have dreams and aspirations as to who we would like to be someday. As a young adult, one would not say, I hope to grow up and become a drug addict or an alcoholic. The question do we achieve these dreams? How do we move closer to becoming that person we dream of being? The answer step at a time. One important step is learning who we are as individuals. What are our strengths and weaknesses. What do we want to improve or change as individuals? INSTRUCTIONS 1. Write a paragraph describing yourself. 2. Describe what you look like and how you dress. 3. Write things you like to do, things you dislike. 4. Write about your special talents, your shortcomings. 5. Does your description sound like someone you would like to know? Or someone you would rather avoid? 6. Write a second paragraph describing what you wish you could be. 7. How would you change yourself? 8. What abilities would you develop? 9. Compare what you are and what you would like to be. 10. What things can you do to bring the wish description closer to the now version? 11.

P.T. Barnum Directions: In a group of 3, 4, or 5 students, create a 4-5 minute infomercial. You must rehearse and make sure you are within the time limit. You may present live on stage or tape the infomercial. If you tape the infomercial, someone who is not in the group must tape you everyone must have a role in the infomercial. Write a script for and present your infomercial. The script must be typed and handed in at the end of the presentation. You must include at least 3 of the following uses of language in your script: For help, open your text to chapter 12 (pgs ) and find examples for the following terms. Imagery = the use of vivid language to create mental images of objects, actions, or ideas. Simile = an explicit comparison, introduced with the word like or as, between things that are essentially different yet have something in common Cliché = a trite or overused expression Metaphor = an implicit comparison, not introduced with the word like or as, between two things that are essentially different yet have something in common Rhythm = the pattern of sound in a speech created by the choice and arrangement of words Parallelism = the similar arrangement of a pair or series of related words, phrases, or sentences Repetition = reiteration of the same word or set of words at the beginning or end of successive clauses or sentences Alliteration = repetition of the initial consonant sound of close or adjoining words Antithesis = the juxtaposition of contrasting ideas, usually in parallel structure 7 GOAL: SELL YOUR PRODUCT TO THE CLASS!!!!! An A presentation will demonstrate the following: Good use of class/preparation time Appropriate drama and enthusiasm on stage Meet time requirement (4-5 min.) Props and costuming A polished presentation Memorization (or near memorization) Script is typed with no errors Script contains 3 types of language from the list (mark and label them in the script) Characteristics of Infomercials: Phone number (usually ) Show sample product(s) Product name Show/demonstrate how the product works Money back guarantee Free trial period Cost of product w/s & H Pushy/vibrant/upbeat speaker person w/cheesy smile to sell the product NOTE: Have fun and be creative with this project. 8 ON SPEECH DAY (for the MAJOR speeches) ATTENDANCE ON SPEAKING DAYS: Attendance is required on speaking days. If you are scheduled to speak on a particular day, you must give your speech on that day. Failure to give your speech on your assigned day will result in a grade of 0 for that assignment. Make ups for MAJOR speeches DO NOT exist. Excused absences include: verifiable illness (with a note from a DOCTOR), serious illness or death of a family member, and class field trips. All of these have to be documented. PROPER CLOTHING ON SPEECH DAYS: Proper dress clothes are required when you deliver your speech. Jeans, shorts, tank tops, low cut shirts, and t-shirts are NOT proper dress etiquette. If you have to ask the teacher if what you are going to wear is appropriate, it s probably safe to assume you should wear something else. PROPER ETIQUETTE: Be respectful. Working on other work, listening to an MP3 player in one ear, reading, or talking while others are speaking is rude and unacceptable behavior. You do not have to agree with a classmate s position, but you can respect him/her, and critique his/her speech on structure and delivery. (RESPECT is not agreeing with everyone. It s agreeing that it s OKAY to disagree.) A supportive environment is crucial to a successful public speaking course. Disruptions will not be tolerated. ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: Cheating will not be tolerated. Failure to cite sources on your outline or orally during your speech are forms of plagiarism. Since this course is through UWGB, their policy regarding cheating will be followed and enforced. MULTI-MEDIA: Cueing a DVD, finding files, etc., counts towards your speaking time. It is fine to have files in your account here at school, but make them easy to find. If you have pictures or a PPT you wish to use during a speech, they must be saved to your school account. Mrs. Lemke will not plug ANYONE S flash drive into her school computer. Please be sure your visual aid does not dominate your speech! FINAL EXAM Your final is two parts. One part is the timed persuasive speech that you will present to the class at the end of the semester. The second part is a take home exam on the textbook. I will pass out the take home final early, allowing you the last two weeks of the course to complete the take home final on the textbook. Using your textbook is encouraged for the take home written final exam. 9 INFORMATIVE SPEECH: First Major Assignment Time Limit: 4:30 6 Minutes Purpose: To define, inform, or teach something of interest = Select a topic you find interesting. To give you an opportunity to outline and organize information as a presentation in a public communication setting To gain experience in standing before others and delivering data of an informative nature REQUIREMENT CHECKLIST On your assigned speech day, you must hand in all of the following requirements BEFORE you present your speech: A typed Formal Preparation Outline = For help, refer to pgs in the text and refer to the example that was passed out in class. It is vital that you follow the format of the example that was passed out in class. Three audience analysis questions One copy of your survey questions Works Cited (MLA Format) References (APA Format) PowerPoint = You must have a minimum of 5 slides, more is fine. Print out a copy for the teacher. Minimum of 4 credible sources = Make sure they are cited in your outline AND don t forget to verbally cite them in your speech. Your speech must have 6 examples of figurative language from Chapter 12. Bold/highlight and label each example in the outline. Minimum of 4 scholarly sources=two sources MUST be journal articles. Reminders: Make sure you wear proper dress clothing. You are addressing your audience as a knowledgeable speaker and what you are wearing matters in the professional world! Structure your ideas on this topic and write an outline. Remember, this is not interpersonal conversation on a one-to-one basis; therefore, your message must be more structured and well organized into specific main points with supporting material. The speech should have one overall thesis with 2 or 3 main points. Any audio/video bits used must be 30 seconds or less When you present you should do the following: 1. Read your entire introduction word for word from your preparation outline to ensure you have all of the specific parts. 2. Once you start the body of your speech, you should be presenting from a speaking outline (See pgs in the textbook.) You should NOT be reading the body of your speech word for word to the class! 3. When you start your conclusion, you may go back to reading word for word from your preparation outline to make sure you include all of your closing comments. 4. IMPORTANT NOTE: Please understand that if you were presenting to a real audience, you would NOT be reading any of your speech word for word. Because of the time restraints on this class, you are not expected to present from a speaking outline for the entire speech. 10 INFORMATIVE SPEECH: Example Preparation Outline (Chapter 11 p.210) Taken from: Jessica Brogley= Changes & additions were made to the following outline by Mrs. Lemke (English teacher at Seymour High School, WI) Name: Jessica Brogley Topic: College Students and Credit Card Debt General Purpose: To inform Specific Purpose (Infinitive Phrase): To inform my audience about the dangers of credit card debt Central Idea (Thesis Statement): Credit Cards are dangerous because they give you a false sense of security, have traps, and c
