Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Find a 15-30 minute video-recorded speech (YouTube, Ted Talks, internet) and type a MORE THAN 4-PAGE DOUBLE-SPACED ONLY ESSAY (INCLUDING BETWEEN PARAGRAPHS AND SECTIONS) evaluating ONE speaker. USE 12-pt FONT ONLY!!!!! PLEASE INCLUDE THE LINK TO YOUR SPEECH OF CHOICE AT THE END OF THE PAPER!!!!!! Ignore the directions in the handout that say “3-4” pages.
The handout below says “External Speaker Critique” because this was an “Speech in person” assignment before the pandemic hit. It was changed to “Video” to keep students safe from Covid-19. Read the handout completely before watching the speech of your choice.
Read the handout and you’ll see this paper is a 6-part essay WITH A COVER PAGE!!! ABSOLUTELY NO HEADERS ALLOWED!!! At the top of each section you are to type the Part # and title in BOLD TYPE.
Then in each section you are are type the answers to the questions in ESSAY FORMAT. That means, DO NOT TYPE OUT THE QUESTIONS OR BULLETPOINTS IN THE PAPER!! JUST TYPE OUT THE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS IN COMPLETE SENTENCES AND PARAGRAPHS!!!! ABSOLUTELY NO HEADERS ALLOWED!!!
An example of how the paper should be formatted is posted below. If your paper does not look EXACTLY like the example you lose big points!!
DO NOT USE GOOGLE DOCS, GOOGLE DRIVE, OR ANYTHING GOOGLE RELATED!!!!! It is nothing but a major HASSLE because the files NEVER OPEN!! Then I have to send out a million e-mails because I can’t get access to assignments.
