Impromptu—Speaking with little or no practice. -Topic usually unknown until just before speech -Little time to prepare -Advantages: Mentally challenging; exercise in creativity; speaker can appear more natural -Disadvantages: Lack of preparation can lead to nerves, mistakes, long pauses. Extemporaneous (style done in this class): -Advantages: Entire speech is not written out, so more chance for eye contact and audience inclusion -If you lose your place you can glance down at outline -Involves elements of other three delivery styles. -Disadvantages: Like manuscript, speakers can rely too much on their outlines. 02.18.09 The Public Sphere—The physical and conceptual spaces in which citizens exchange views on matters of public interest.
