APRIL 2016

Quote of the Month

Speech is the skin of the self. -- Seneca (Roman philosopher and statesman)

Tip of the Month

As you choose your persuasive speech topic and deliver your speech, think about the topics that are important to you. As Seneca's quote above suggests, our speech is a part of us. When you speak about something you care about, your delivery will be better and you will enjoy the speech writing and delivery process more.

Speech of the Month

April is Asian American heritage month and in the following video, actor George Takei, speaks at the site of a Japanese interment camp in Rohwer Arkansas. Takei spent time as a prisoner in this camp as a child, which comes through in the speech as he clearly connects the topic to his experiences.
