SPCH 100 – Winter Quarter
Final Paper/Speech Option
CHOOSE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:
Option 1: The Final Paper
Length: 5 pages
Topic: A comprehensive analysis of your experience in this class. Please discuss how you have progressed, or not progressed, as a communicator. Highlight your experiences with public speaking, interpersonal communication, and small group communication. Have you reached/attempted to reach your goals in taking the material we covered into your personal life? It needs to be honest – I really want to know what you got out of this class in accordance with your original ideas.
Due: By on March 15 in my box (Room R230 on Main Campus)
Option 2: The Final Speech
Length: 4-6 Minutes
Topic: Your choice. This should be a speech that is relevant, somehow, to your life – perhaps a toast, a business pitch, or a persuasive testimonial. Try to avoid doing an informative speech; consider instead a descriptive speech. The goal is to incorporate elements from class material, to correct mistakes made in past speeches, and to present a very solid, entertaining speech!
Due: You will turn in your outline and present on either March 9 or March 11. If this is the option that you choose, send me an e-mail and tell me if you prefer to speak on March 9 or March 11. If I do not receive an e-mail from you with this information, I will assume you have chosen Option 1.
