Identify and assess socially significant and intellectual topics, then compose and deliver extemporaneous oral presentations (using note cards or key-word outlines) on those topics. LO2. Engage in critical and analytical listening. LO3. Analyze audiences, adapt oral presentations to diverse audiences and use that information to accomplish the purpose of the speech. LO4.
