Public Speaking and usefulness within society : It is a way to express your ideas and to have an impact on issues that matter in society. Public speaking offers you an opportunity to “make a difference” in something you care about very much. Similarities and Differences between public speaking and conversation : Similarities o Organizing your thoughts logically Take your listener step by step. Ex: giving directions to a friend o Tailoring your message to your audience Changing story for your audiences understanding. Ex: telling 9 year old and 25 year old the same story, just different terms. o Telling a story for maximum impact Build up your story, adjusting your words and tone of voice to get the best effect. o Adapting to listener feedback Whenever you talk to someone, you are aware of that person’s verbal, facial, and physical reactions. Differences o Public speaking is more highly structured Usually imposes strict time limitations on the speaker. Speaker must accomplish her or his purpose in the speech itself; involves much more detailed planning and preparation than ordinary conversation. o Public speaking requires more formal language No slang or bad grammar. Polish your language to make your speech “special” when addressing your audience. o Public speaking requires a different method of delivery Adjust voice to be heard clearly to all audience members. Avoid saying, “um, like, you know, uh”. Communication/Public Speaking Definition : People using the art of language and gestures by sharing information. Process of (who?) humans using (how?) symbols (why?) to create and regulate a social reality. Communication/Public Speaking Model : Global plagiarism: Act of taking someone else’s entire work and passing it as your own. Patchwork plagiarism: Stealing others ideas or language (2-3 sources) and acting as if it is yours. Basically a quilt of everyone’s ideas without giving him or her credit. Incremental plagiarism: When you take an idea but do not cite where it came from. Failing to give credit for particular parts of a speech that are borrowed from other people. Ethical guidelines for speakers : Make sure goals are ethically sound o That they are consistent with the welfare or society and your audience. Be fully prepared o The better you prepare, the better your speech will be. Be honest in what you say
