Project Description

Practice Recovering from Speaking Disasters

If you are speaking and you screw up, it isn't the end of the world. There is always a way to recover. How you recover is the mark of a good speaker. Just ask Steve Harvey.

Making a video and seeing your weaknesses and knowing what to prepare for can make all of the difference in the world. If you share it with others, you can determine what others might see.

For this project, students will need to record themselves speaking using a cellphone, camera, or webcam.

When you have completed this course, you will be able to:

  • Recover from speaking blunders
  • Handle brain freezes
  • Appear confident and relaxed, even when you aren't
  • Not react to little mistakes throughout the speech
