How to ace your speeches!

Posted on April 28, 2013 at 2:13pm 0 Comments

Speeches. Most people hate them, and why wouldn’t they? It can be pretty nerve-wracking to stand in front of a group of people and talk with no response. It can feel like talking to a wall sometimes. In school it’s worse because you have a whole class of people watching you AND your teacher grading it. There is a lot of pressure involved in giving a speech, but if you remember a few simple things you can get through all of your speeches like a pro.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

For my independent reading book this quarter, I decided to stick with the Harry Potter series. For those of you who have read the books, you will understand how addicting they can be. What I’ve found is that at the beginning of each book, I am bored out of my mind, but if you can make it to the halfway point, things get exciting.

Good blog post Melanie. I have heard of water for Elephants but I have never been inclined to read, although I think I will now. The Percy Jackson series is really good but don't watch the movie because it kills the effect. Also, I happen to be the person that never really read Harry Potter until this year. I'm on book 2 and movie 3. I think you should keep going with them because I really like them
