Storyboard Description

The Red Badge of Courage activity Overcoming Fear Assignment

Storyboard Text

  • I’m running for class president, but I am afraid of making my speech in front of the entire school next week.
  • Practicing beforehand several times creates memories in your muscles that will help you when you actually get up to speak. Your voice will remember what to emphasize, and you’ll already know how to place your hands or stand.
  • Don’t make eye contact with anyone; instead, look over their heads, just above their eye level. That way, you don’t get distracted by people’s facial expressions.
  • Make the font on the page really large, and only fill each page about halfway down. This way you can look up often and you won’t rely on looking down as much. Also, number the pages so if you drop them, you can quickly put them back in order!
  • Thank you all. I am here today to talk about why you should elect me for class president. I have lots of ideas for fundraising, so we can be sure to have the best senior prom ever!

  • Enlist the help of a friend or family member to listen and give suggestions. They can even record you so you can already see and hear what the audience will see and hear. That way there will be no surprises!
