  • Reflect on how you will incorporate this information into your own life.
  • Specific to this lesson: How did this lesson’s Ted Talk speaker organize her argument? Do you think it was effective? Did you seem to be “hearing” a stale outline or were you able to follow her argument with her personality?
  • Delivery Focus Area: Your instructor will be evaluating you specifically on the following criteria:
    • Rate and Pace: See Lesson 1 for specific details.
    • Posture: See Lesson 2 for specific details.
    • Pitch and Inflection: See Lesson 3 for specific details.
