Heather Fackelman December 19, 2007  Speech Class Professor Lefever Critique I observed my priest deliver his sermon at mass, and overall, I  thought his speech was pretty effective.  Though he did not incorporate  all of the techniques that we have learned in class and through reading  the textbook, he incorporated many of them, probably without even  knowing it.  For that reason his speech was somewhat clear, very  thought-provoking, and as effective as it could have been without the use  of an outline.  I gathered this based on his delivery, and the structure and  content of his speech. The delivery of my priest’s speech was probably the strongest  feature.  He had great vocal variety, making it easy to listen to his  sermon.  He was loud and his voice resonated; I could hear him all the  way from the back of the church.  He had good eye contact, making sure  to focus on all parts of the church and to “share” with different people.  His gestures were also effective, as he used the various statues around

the church and gestured toward them as he referred to them.  It was  clear that he had practiced and that he knew what he was going to say.  His passion toward the content was evident in his delivery, and I could  really feel when he was excited or upset about something he was saying.  I could definitely tell that he was breathing, and this helped because he  did not seem nervous at all.  His pauses were effective and gave me time  to take in everything that he was saying.  For the most part, his delivery

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
