With not much speaking experience, I was nervous coming into this class. I have given speeches in the past, but tend to be shy and timid when speaking in front of an audience.
Feedback from my teamates
By using the techniques I learned to write my speech, such as the preparation and speaking outline, I was able to organize my thoughts and create a well written speech.
Felt more confident
Practicing infant of a mirror allowed me to practice my body language and facial delivery
Benefits my future
Feedback from my teammates through peer evaluations and taking face to face, allowed me to know how to improve more my next speech.
The resources available to me in class, such as the text book and my encouraging teammates, I was able to feel more confident and comfortable speaking in front of an audience.
Feeling comfortable speaking in front of an audience and knowing the skills needed in public speaking will benefit me in my future classes at APU as well as my future career. In any career, it is important possess public speaking skills. I plan on being a nurse in the future and this class has provided me with the skills to communicate with other, which is extremely important in the field of nursing.
