Due Date: Sunday at 11:59 pm of Unit 5
Points: 100

Overview:

After taking the Personal Report of Public Speaking Anxiety (PRPSA), reflect on your
results in a brief 2-3 minute video journal. Were you surprised at your results? Do they
match how you feel about public speaking? What tips or tricks have worked for you to
overcome any fear you may have had about public speaking? How are you feeling
about the upcoming speech presentation? Is there anything in particular that worries
you the most about the speech?

Instructions:

In your video journal address the following:

ï‚· Were you surprised at your results?

ï‚· Do they match how you feel about public speaking?

ï‚· What tips or tricks have worked for you to overcome any fear you may have had

about public speaking?

ï‚· How are you feeling about the upcoming speech presentation?

ï‚· Is there anything in particular that worries you the most about the speech?

You may record the video using your cell phone or webcam. You will then upload your
video to Youtube, ensuring you select the “unlisted” option. This will keep your video
private and allow access only to those who have the video link. You will then post the
video link in the Overcoming Speaking Anxiety video journal discussion forum. You are
encouraged to watch each speech but are not required to comment. Any comments left
on this discussion will not be graded.

Tips and Guidelines:

ï‚· Pay attention to your presentation style. Be sure to speak loudly and clearly so
the audience can hear you.

ï‚· Record your video in a small, quiet space with plenty of light and be sure there is
no audio feedback on the recording.

ï‚· Position yourself in the center of the frame so your facial expressions and other
body language are in clear view.

ï‚· Think about your appearance. Dress like you would in a classroom environment.
