    these with some work. The one problem with my first speech was that I had no clear organizational structure. In the comments on my grade, it said that it felt like I was just listing random facts, and this was somewhat confusing or not interesting to the listener.

However, as it was, my…

    Two additional aspects that I evaluated were my gestures and body movement. My movement throughout the presentation was the biggest area that I must criticize about myself. I was very stiff during the presentation. In the beginning, I stood in one spot, and I did not move anywhere else.

During the other half of my portion of the speech, I walked over to…
