Very impressed!

Hello,I took Fundamentals of Speech last spring, and am trying to stay involved with Professor Green's wonderful site and class. If your video is here, you've probably noticed a comment from me on its page. As a 'veteran' of the class, I am adding my two cents in the hope that they will help you in some small way. Occasionally I may have mentioned the wrong thing, or pointed out a flaw that wasn't there - If I did, I sincerely apologize! I have only a student's knowledge and am still learning,…See More

"The Purse of Gold," 10/05/09

"Very nice job! I really liked your introduction - you immediately connect with the audience with an informal tone and by telling them why you like the story you're about to say. You told the tale really well - I got all wrapped up in the…"

Narrative/Storytelling Warm-Up, 9/23/09

"Interesting intro, and creatively applied to your speech. The story was a teeny bit short, but I think you got the message across. Nice, clear tone and your seem very comfortable in front of your audience. Good job!"

Narrative/Storytelling Warm-Up, 9/23/09

"You have a very good moral for the story, but I think you gave it a bit away all in the beginning. Perhaps try to make some small separations between your story and moral. Your tone was a little flat at times, and the ending was a little…"

Narrative/Storytelling Warm-Up, 9/23/09

"Very nice, approchable intro. Excellent storytelling, with voices (vocal variety), emphasis, and little details - it's these things that make stories come alive! It's always good to share a personal anecdote when it fits the speech's…"

Narrative/Storytelling Warm-Up, 9/23/09

"It's always nice when you know a good story and can share it with the class. I like the moral very much. You may want to practice swaying a little less, and adding a little more of an intro. Still, very good job for a speech, excellent job for…"

Narrative/Storytelling Warm-Up, 9/23/09

Narrative/Storytelling Warm-Up, Sept. 21, 2009

"Very interesting tidbit about Hemingway, though I may have missed how it ties in? The story was good, and personal anecdotes are always a sure way to gain attention from your audience. You may want to work on your volume, as it seems a little low. I…"

Narrative/Storytelling Warm-Up, Sept. 21, 2009

"Is this a reinterpretation of the story, "The Smuggler"? If so, very creative! You seem very confident and your volume (over my computer at least) sounds just right. The ending may have been a little abrupt, and you may want to consider…"

Why I like CuentaCuentos and Fundamentals of Speech

I just ended one of the best classes I've taken, Fundamentals of Speech 101 with Professor Green. I wanted to write, particularly for new students considering taking it (but also for current and previous ones) why I liked this class and why I like this site.

Arabic Music in Jewish Culture Expository Speech #1, July 3, 2014

Demonstration Speech, Monday, May 14, 2012, on Using Library Databases
