Speech Exercises for the Classroom: A Guide for Professors, Teachers and Speech Instructors [NOOK Book]

Overview

When I began teaching public speaking courses I considered myself lucky. My fellow Teaching Assistants and later professorial colleagues would often state they were at a loss in coming up with classroom exercises for their students. In my graduate days, other TAs would come into our shared office space, flustered, and would say they had to teach in 30 minutes and had no idea what they were going to do. I would always have an answer. I seemed to...

Overview

When I began teaching public speaking courses I considered myself lucky. My fellow Teaching Assistants and later professorial colleagues would often state they were at a loss in coming up with classroom exercises for their students. In my graduate days, other TAs would come into our shared office space, flustered, and would say they had to teach in 30 minutes and had no idea what they were going to do. I would always have an answer. I seemed to have a ‘knack’ for coming up with different exercises based upon what they were covering in class.

I didn’t pay attention to this ‘talent’ until I became a professor and realized that my friends and colleagues were still asking me the same questions. The professors weren’t asking 30 minutes before class but they were still asking what they could do. It dawned on me, I was the go to guy.

If you need classroom exercises for your speech students then you need this book!

---Praise for Dr. Akil’s Speech Courses and Classroom Exercises----


What students are saying about Bakari Akil’s teaching methods:


"I have never had such a wonderful teacher. He really challenged me as a student and got me to understand my potential. In addition, my classmates agree, that he is the first guy who really stressed the importance of being who you are, not a façade."


"This course helped me realize how important public speaking is and taught me valuable techniques that will help me on the job and during every day life. Dr. Akil let us practice public speaking every day of class and I think this really helped other students and me get over speaking anxiety! I would definitely recommend him to other students."


"Very good professor! He made the class fun and interesting."


"Good class! Dr. Akil has a great personality and always displayed lots of professionalism. Everyone got to speak in public several times (nearly every class period). Also, there was a lot of student interaction, which I loved. I would definitely recommend him!"


"His teaching style helped a lot with the actual speeches. Going in front of the class everyday made us more comfortable with our speaking."


"Dr. Akil is a wonderful professor and teaches speech perfectly. He makes all of his students comfortable and allows them time to adjust to speaking in front of a group of peers. Everyone must do every assignment, whether they are nervous or not, which is completely fair and helps students get over their anxiety. I recommend this teacher to anyone who needs a speech course!"
