Video for delivery
While the full 10-minute video is fairly long for class, this one breaks down into three smaller segments which could be shown on their own for different topics.
- The first part focuses on interpersonal issues — why are some approaches conversation killers?
- The second portion focuses on characteristics of the voice — using the metaphor of a toolbox Treasure covers vocal qualities that a speaker wants to demonstrate and those to avoid.
- The final (brief) portion covers warm-up exercises to practice before speaking. A demonstration of each exercise is given.
Either of the last two segments would be a great addition to the delivery topic in a public speaking class — either in class or as additional material available to students. The first segment also contains very good information, but would fit better in an interpersonal unit or related to audience adaptation than delivery.
