This is a good example of how your speech should look and sound. Notice how she makes eye contact with the audience. Her tempo, volume, and diction are good. She lays out all the materials needed for the speech. She speaks to the audience conversationally and naturally, rather than in a robotic, choppy manner. Her timing is good, falling within the 2-4 minute time requirement. Just remember that when you give YOUR speech, do not block your audience's view the way she does with the jelly jar. Also, you will need to have and use a visual aid such as a poster during your speech, which she does not have.
Below are some slideshows of former student How-To Speeches. Look at the visual aids to get ideas for yours. Remember, your visual needs to be creative and colorful, on topic, and easily seen by the entire audience. Be creative in your speech topic!!
