Meeting 2: Overview - Debating techniques

Page history last edited by kyle mawer 10 years, 11 months ago

We will meet in a different place for the second meeting.  The reason for this is that we need a place where we can watch a youtube video.  You can watch youtube videos here at the British Council Isle.


In this session we will go through some of the basic presentation techniques.  This will include looking at considerations for when you speak in public such as having a logical and coherent structure, speaking clearly and the use of intonation etc.  We will also look at some videos of historic speeches and discuss what makes them effective and what techniques the speaker uses in their speech.


Here are some examples:


Barack Obama - "Plan for change" speech.



Martin Luther King Jr - "I Have a Dream" speech.



Margaret Thatcher  - "On socialism" speech




Tips on Public speaking




At the end of the session there will be time for you to organise times for you to meet up with the rest of your team/ group.
