1. Audience. Did the speaker have an audience of at least three people?

2. Entry. In a short paragraph, please review the speaker’s initial breath, walk up to the front, getting grounded in the “box,” and initial eye contact to the audience.

3. Delivery. In a long paragraph and using terminology and concepts from the reading, discuss how the speaker did with eye contact, articulation, projection, gestures, nervous movements; vocal pauses/fillers. For example, “I think the speaker had great eye contact. The speaker only looked at the index cards occasionally.”

4. Organization. How was the speaker’s hook? Was the speech well organized – explain. What was the final remark?
