Hale Scheckelhoff COM 135 Narrative Evaluation 1. Identify two strengths of your speech. When giving my speech I felt very confident when giving it.

Finally, I hope to bring in a prop or visual aid to keep the audience more engaged and interested in my speech, which will require time to find the right prop with the right topic....
