Stop Talking to Power Points
In this activity, students will work on maintaining eye contact with their audience while giving an impromptu speech. The goal is to stop (or reduce) students' tendency to look at their visual aid during speech presentations.
Students will be able to articulate and understand the importance of building familiarity with visual aid content (via Power Point Slides) in order to increase confidence, credibility, and eye contact. Students will practice maintaining eye contact by learning to avoid speaking to Power Point slides via impromptu speaking.
