SpeechGeek: Intro to Individual Events PowerPoint
SpeechGeek is proud to present a brand new product designed to welcome newcomers to the world of competitive speech.
From the start of the first team meeting to the end of the first awards ceremony, there are a lot ideas, terms, and events circulating at a typical speech tournament. To the uninitiated, forensics can be a bit overwhelming. SpeechGeek is here to help.
We've created a PowerPoint presentation designed to serve as an orientation for new students and volunteer judges. The slides walk through an explanation of what forensics is, what to expect at a tournament, basic terminology, tips on writing ballots, and event descriptions based on rules established by the National Forensics League. The presentation can be used during a team meeting or distributed digitally for students or prospective judges to review at their own time.
For only ten dollars, you'll receive the original PowerPoint presentation and free updated versions as we refine the presentation. Much like a smartphone app, we'll send updates to customers who have already purchased the slides.
With 80 colorful slides, this PowerPoint focuses on providing introductory information on individual events such as oral interpretation, public speaking, and limited preparation speaking.
