          • You need to communicate exact descriptions or directions

      • Memorizing part or all of your speech
      • When you must deliver a short special-occasion speech such as:
          • A toast
          • An introduction
          • If you plan on using direct quotations
    • Speaking Impromptu
      • Organizing your thoughts with little or no preparation time
      • When you’re called to speak without prior planning or preparation
    • Speaking Extemporaneously
      • Developing your speech in a working outline
      • Practicing and delivering with a phrase, or key-word outline
      • When you have time to prepare and practice developing a speech, which will achieve natural conversational style
    • Monitoring the Voice
    • Elements of Vocal Delivery
      • Volume and pitch:
          • The relative loudness of a speaker’s voice while delivering a speech
          • Use a loud, clear speaking volume, adjusting to environment:
            • size of the room
            • number of people in the audience
            • Whether or not you use a microphone
            • Be alert to audience feedback
      • Vary Intonation:
          • The range of voice, from high to low
          • Expresses enthusiasm, commitment and excitement in your speech
          • No variety of pitch leads to a monotone, failing speech
    • Elements of Vocal Delivery (cont…)
      • Speaking Rate:
          • The pace at which you convey your speech
          • Be alert to audience, and speak at a steady, comfortable, yet enthusiastic pace
      • Pause:
          • Don’t cram words and sentences together
          • Pause between main thoughts and ideas:
            • This emphasizes a point
            • Draws attention
            • Allows the audience to contemplate what is being said
    • Elements of Vocal Delivery (cont…)
      • Pronunciation:
          • The correct formation of word sounds
          • Be sure to know the correct pronunciation of all the words in your speech:
            • Using different dialects
            • Speaking in a foreign language
            • Introducing someone’s name, a country, etc.
      • Articulation:
          • The clarity or forcefulness with which sounds are made.
          • Poor articulation is a habit of lazy speech:
            • Mumbling, slurring words together
              • (ex. shoulda, coulda, wanna, )
    • Controlling Body Language
    • Pay Attention to Body Language
      • Audiences immediately observe the speaker’s body language:
          • Facial expressions, eye behavior, gestures and general body movements
      • Use natural, animated facial expressions to represent the emotion of your speech
      • Maintain eye contact
      • Use natural gestures that are engaging, and enhance your speech
      • Be aware of overall body movement:
          • Control nervous habits ( fumbling fingers, swaying, touching hair )
          • Use the space around you, don’t stand like a statue
    • Using Visual Aids
    • Presentation Aids
      • Visual aids help listeners to understand and remember key points
      • Studies show people remember about 30% of what they hear, and 60% of what they see
      • Select an appropriate visual aid:
          • Props, models, graphs, charts, video, audio, power point
      • Select the aid, or combination of aids that will effectively enhance your speech
    • Presentation Aids (cont…)
      • Designing Presentations:
          • Strive for simplicity
          • One major point per aid
          • State your points in short phrases
          • Be uniform in applying the same design to all your aids
      • Rehearsing:
          • Rehearse the speech with the presentation aid(s)
          • In your speaker’s notes, cue each aid to where you want to introduce it
    • Good luck to all of you future speakers of America!
