Introduction to Public Speaking Peer Critiques on your “Memorable Speech”

Peer evaluations have proven to be one of the most beneficial and impactful methods of improving one’s public speaking. It is also one of the hardest things to do, as a peer evaluation walks a thin line between constructive criticism and harsh opinion. Nevertheless, it’s a mainstay for a Public Speaking course, and you might be surprised at how helpful the advice of your classmates can be.

For this assignment, you are to evaluate the Week 2 Memorable Speeches of two different classmates, but also provide a critical analysis of your own memorable speech presentation.

A few parameters:

As mentioned, you are tasked with evaluating two of your classmates’ memorable speeches and your own video presentation. This evaluation shall be delivered via webcam. NOTE: I recommend you have prepared notes in front of you while delivering your evaluations. Perhaps a list of strengths and weaknesses and what you liked or disliked. Each evaluation (including your own self-analysis) should be 1 minute each. You only need one to create one video that contains all three critiques, as opposed to three separate videos. I want everyone to be able to find their own critiques, so please include your name and your classmate’s name in the title of your evaluation. Example: “George Jetson Evaluation of Homer Simpson and Fred Flinstone.” Evaluations should be constructive and include things that were done well, and areas that can be improved. Be honest but respectful. Instead of saying, “Your speech was boring,” say, “Your speech would have been more animated had you… ” Remember, constructive criticism is meant to be helpful advice. If you learn from each other, you might be surprised at how much and how quickly you improve.
