If I did it again I would add another transition in between when I was talking about his early life and Lucille. I was thinking about these two things as both being part of the early part of his career, but I do not think that I portrayed this and it seemed choppy moving from one to the next. The only transition I had was between main points of his early life and the legacy he has today. All of the content in my speech was very relevant and it outlines most of who B.B.

For next time I would change up the order of the conclusion I would begin by summing up and then end the speech with a quote. Possible leaving them with something to think about after my speech was…

    Aside from intermittently picking up their “social distraction-integration device” (or as I refer to their cell phones) from time to time, they were fully engaged in interaction (“doing gender” as society would refer to as gossiping between females) with each other. Group 4: there was a Caucasian Mother (possibly late 20s-early 30s and what looked to be her mother, 40s-50s) with two children (two little girls between 4 and 8) at a table.

    healthcare in rural towns is an issue that I can relate with. I decided to write about this issue because a lot of people are unaware about it.
