I knew I was an effective public speaker, but I wanted to continue to improve my abilities. After practically finishing this course, I can confidently call myself an advanced public speaker because of three key speaking strengths I possess,…

    For my self-critique assessment, I chose to critique my commemorative speech, which was on basketball. Overall, I think that I did a good job on this speech, but there is always room for improvement. First, I think that I had a lot of good aspects to this speech, which include that: I picked a topic that I was passionate about, discussed various life lessons that someone can learn from playing the game of basketball, elaborated on why I feel it should be commemorated, and incorporated some…

    into an overwhelming amount of anxiety in my sophomore classroom related to public speaking. For the past few years, I have only taught public speaking skills in a senior-level speech course and a college-level speech course, and in both of those courses, students have either elected to participate or paid to be present. While I still have encountered students with anxiety, I have quickly forgotten how truly terrifying public speaking is to the general population - especially young teens.…

    experiences; we could assume that the speaker of the poem is actually her. The speaker is reminiscing on many of the things that she has been in the past, for example, a witch and a caretaker. The poem seems to highlight the speaker’s personal experiences and attitudes, which gives the poem a significant and friendly tone. The readers do not know much about the speaker except that she is…

    This idea is supported by the frequented use of self-address implemented in the second half. The speaker becomes more involved. “I thought,” “I looked,” “I admired,” all produce a more active role on the part of the speaker. The turning point in the poem that triggers this alteration seems to be when the reader realizes that the fish is in fact still alive. “While his gills were breathing” (line 22) is the first action given to the fish and the first time he is addressed as a living thing…

    Painted around 1920 by German expressionist Martin Zeller, The Orator captures the fleeting moment in which the titular speaker basks in the climax of his great and powerful message. While he stands just to the left of center, his body takes up the entire length of the picture and covers the span of the entire left side. With his arms and legs spread wide on a raised orange-brown platform, he throws back his head toward to sky to summon a great miracle, message, or magic. Or perhaps he himself…

    of the poem shifts from hopeless to nearly nihilistic, as the final image is of the speaker watching love and fame leave him and become nothing. Part of this rejection in meaning stems from the way Keats presents death in this specific poem. How the speaker feels about death in “When I have Fears” differs greatly from, “Ode to a Nightingale.” Instead of the speaker being “half in love with easeful Death” the speaker resents death as it means the end of his sizable ambitions. However, while there…

    “Imagine the Angels of Bread” is a poem where the speaker lists the multiple injustices in the world and levels it out so that those suffering can have either justice or those committing the injustices are punished. In the poem’s multiple directions to “imagine,” Martin Espada presents a call to arms to the reader, encouraging them to imagine the wrongdoings and to hopefully act upon them. By getting the readers to imagine such injustice and by having hope that one day the wrongs will be righted…

    discoveries: her love for and confidence in reading poetry. The poem begins with the speaker stumbling upon the book, which she says surprised her. The speaker goes in depth to describe the book, noting its “swans gliding on a blueback lake… posed on a placid lake, your name blurred underwater sinking to the bottom.” The use of imagery here is employed to demonstrate how quickly the speaker’s…
