During our next class, we will look over the following speeches.

We will try to understand and ascertain why people think they are so good – and, more importantly, what techniques are used to make them so good.

Perhaps some of the material in here might help you for your third and fourth assignments.

We will read and listen to some of the speeches. Then, you will be asked to read some of them too, so that you can practice and more directly understand the techniques involved.

If you listen to some of these at home, they might sound boring and old-fashioned. So be careful to pay attention to the information provided about why the speech is so good.

You can find the material here:
