Simpsons: Season 13, episode 18

Early in this episode, a guest speaker comes to speak to the elementary students on Career Day. Geoff Jenkins is a cartoonist and gives a presentation that is completely inappropriate for the age of the students and the Career Day goals (however, there is nothing offensive in the clip). It nicely opens a discussion of what he does wrong and the ethical implications of such a presentation.

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.
