Closing exercise for stage fright

Minute paper

Pass out quarter sheets of notebook paper and ask the students to list one thing they learned today that they think may help them deal with their speech anxiety. This helps give me an idea of where to focus the lecture in upcoming classes.

Minute papers are meant to be anonymous, although I invite students to put their names on the paper if they would like a personal e-mail response.

About teachingpublicspeaking

I believe public speaking can go from most dreaded class to favorite class. I'm a former public speaking college instructor who spent years seeking out activities, assignments and examples to make the class interactive as well as educational -- they are collected here. I welcome suggestions for additions.

What do you think?
