For my Informative Speech in COMM 210, I wanted to inform my class on my workplace, Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. The specific purpose of my speech was for my audience to know the past, present, and achievements of this theme park by the end of my speech. I feel I achieve this pretty well. For this speech, I was much more comfortable in front of the class. This allowed me to keep it together and not let my nerves get to the best of me.
After reviewing my tribute speech about my son Scott, I noticed details that at the moment I did not realize what I was doing wrong. I noticed I sway through the entire presentation and played with the paper a lot as well as playing with my hair and earing at 3 minutes and again at 6 minutes and 43 seconds into the speech. Not only was I guilty of these issues, I also realized my organization was a little off kilter. I rushed through the speech along with not looking up from the paper as much as I should have and I need to work on my pronunciation. Looking back at my presentation it was obvious that I was extremely nervous, making me sway back and forth along with playing with my earrings.

Thirdly, I feel that I could’ve informed my classmates to get the concern about human trafficking.
UC 120 Cari Cost Mrs. Lasure TTH 9:30-10:45 “Coffee Marbling “ I think my speech on marbling a coffee mug went smoothly. I believe my voice projection was loud enough and consistent throughout the speech. I also remembered to do my Bill of Materials, which I was very nervous about forgetting. I think overall my greatest strength was not having to rely on my notecard as much as I thought I would.

Good points. When diplomacy fails, and a nation does not wish to partake in war, what actions can be taken to avoid sending troops into war? The United States has experienced war many times throughout the nation’s history, and the internal toll that war can be detrimental if not entirely supported by its citizens. Protests, peace movements, political turmoil, decreased support for combat troops and diminished support for the sitting president are some issues, which a war can draw out from the homeland. Covert actions can assist in the avoidance of war by seeking to gain or sway influence or spark actions in other countries.
Self-evaluation of Class Presentation The controversial speech that I presented to the class discussed the benefits of a self-driving car. The self-driving car has been around for some time in this society. I found three sources that supported my position when I started to work on my speech.

In Double or Die James Bond gets caught up in a mix where he is trying to solve a coded letter. In his little adventure James Bond drives his perfect car and solves problems every so often. Knowing what James Bond has gone through and how he has saved the world twice at a young age, I was curious to learn about how an organization like the CIA or M16 find young recruits and how someone could become a spy. Attempting to figure out how James Bond would become a spy is very clear in the books but I wanted to know if spies were actually going on great adventures. I also wanted to see if training to become a spy was similar to how James Bond was preparing without knowing.
John Le Carre’s novel “The Spy Who Came in From the Cold,” tells the tale of Alec Leamas, a spy who is working for the British in their attempts to bring down the Communist Soviet party occupying East Berlin.

Although Leamas proves to initially be reluctant to engage in any sort of relationship with Liz, he agrees to have dinner with her after working at the library for three weeks. They eventually become lovers, but Leamas hides most of his personality from her, only occasionally showing any part of his identity to her. When she asks him personal and philosophical questions, he states that he does not like “conversations about life” (Le Carre 31).
Eleonora Hasani Comm 145 Online “Just Bag it” Speech Self-Evaluation 1. I gained my audience’s attention through an ironic joke. By asking my audience if they hated when people answered their own questions, and then proceeded to answer my own question saying I hated it, I got them interested in what else I had to say. 2. I feel like I introduced by topic clearly by stating in my introduction paragraph that I wanted to give the audience a “glimpse of my life” and then followed it with my thesis that included the three items I was going to talk about. 3.
After presenting my informative speech, I felt that this speech was better than my introduction speech. When I chose to do this speech on Wonder Woman, I was very motivated throughout the whole time I researched and rehearsed this topic. Wonder Woman was a great topic for the audience and occasion because it’s a fascinating topic for people to learn about. One of my friends told me that she was looking forward to my speech because she was curious about the topic of superheroes. Overall, I was able to inform my audience about Wonder Woman, specifically her origins, super abilities, and impact on feminism.
