Introductory Speech

Introductory Speech—Introduce Yourself– Speech #1
You will introduce yourself to the class. After you feel that you have gathered enough information about yourself, you will then need to prepare a 3 to 5 minute speech. Your speech should include an attention getter/introduction, a body (the information you have gathered), and a clear conclusion (this does not mean “and that’s it”). Get as creative as you want—you may want to write a poem, song, short story, personal ad, news story, etc. – whatever inspires you.
Submit your introductory speech notes to complete this assignment.
You may use the following ideas to gather information, but feel free to stray from the list and create your own questions. Only share what you are comfortable sharing. Be creative and have fun with this assignment.
*Answers are in parentheses for your information when writing the speech.
