1Delivery: a combination of voice and body language that make up how the speech was presented. It is the mode or manner you use to transmit messages to your audience.DeliveryTypes of Delivery
2Types of Delivery: Manuscript Method For official records or conference proceedings
3Types of Delivery: Memorized Method Sometimes sounds just as mechanical a a manuscript
5Types of Delivery: Impromptu Method Use the impromptu method when you give a short speech with little or no time for preparation. Even in an impromptu situation, pause to organize your speech. Focus on your main point, proof to support your main point, and a conclusion.
6Voice – the power source for speakers Voice – the power source for speakers. Made up of vocal aspects (such as pauses), emphasis, volume, pitch, rate, articulation, and pronunciation.DeliveryDelivery: Vocal
7Volume Volume is the loudness or softness of your voice An effective speaker uses a wide range of volume, as appropriate, from whisper to loud volume.Voice projection is related to volumeVarying the volume alleviates vocal monotonyFind a balance between TOO LOUD and too soft
8Volume: Practice Loud: Miss G is the best Speech teacher ever! Soft: North is way better than South!Project a whisper: Hey, what did you decide to do this weekend?Rate your “normal” volume.
9Rate Pace, or speed, at which you talk The rate of speech used to move through the contentUnfilled pauses (silence)should be used effectively to monitor the speaker’s rate; Pause for effectUse slashes to mark pauses on manuscriptsFine line between not waiting at all – and waiting too long!
14Vocal Emphasis or Vocal Inflection Altering your vocal tone or your pitch to stress important words or phrasesThe voice should be properly expressive in order to engage the audience and create interestUnfilled pauses (silence) should be used to create suspense and bring attention to an important point
15Vocal Emphasis or Vocal Inflection: Practice “Her name is Sally and she’s my friend”
16Articulation and Pronunciation Articulation, or enunciation, refers to the crispness, the distinctness, which we say the syllables in a wordAvoid “mushmouth syndrome”Pronunciation refers to saying the sounds of a word properly and stress the correct syllable
17Articulation and Pronunciation Practice Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked. If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?D-A-T-AM-A-T-U-R-EM-A-R-T-I-NWhat other words that have multiple ways of pronouncing them?
18Additional Aspects of Vocal Delivery Pause Before Starting = Pause and gather yourself before starting the speech. Not pausing or pausing for a very short time can make the speaker appear nervous, eager, or unpolished. It is more effective to pause for 2-3 sections before starting.Avoid Fillers or Vocalized Pauses = The speaker should not utter vocalized pauses (Um, Ah, and You Know). Vocalized pauses are sounds or expressions used by many speakers to fill silence instead of using silent pauses.
19PRACTICE: Put it all together! (Simple, honest statement, or perhaps sarcasm.)"I appreciate the kindness you have shown me, and I hope to return the favor when I can."(Resentment, anger, unfriendliness)"Kindness! Do you call that kindness? I wouldn't treat a stray dog the way you've treated me!(Deep feeling of earnestness and conviction)"If we all show a little kindness, a little concern for others' need as well as our own, we can help make the word what it should be.“Delivery Notes!
20Delivery: Body Language Body Language – nonverbal communication that is expressed through eyes, limbs, posture, and face.deliveryDelivery: Body Language
21Eye Contact When the speaker looks at the audience Eye contact duration = how long the speaker hold eye contactEye contact distribution = how the speaker looks at all members of the audience and all parts of the roomEye contact affects the speaker’s creditability and persuasiveness
22Eye Contact: Practice1. Staring Contest: Find someone next to you. Go as long as possible without blinking. Crown a winner and a loser. 2. Have a conversation without looking at the person’s eyes.
23PostureInvolves position and projection of the shoulders, chest, abdomen, and legsPosture relays confidence and bad postures can tarnish the speaker’s creditability
24Posture Practice1. Create a stance or posture for the following character types:Innocent little kid, age 6, wanting ice creamGrouchy old man who always yells at kids to get off his lawnHigh school girl who is “too cool”Jock boy who was trying to be cool/tough but got turned down by the girl he just asked out2. What emotions are the silhouettes conveying?
25Gestures Gestures are moving the hands, head, or other body limbs Gestures may be used to accentuate, exaggerate, or even replace verbal communicationEffective speakers need to be aware of their arms and hands and avoid positions that may send negative messages or be distractingMatch your gestures to your words!
26Gesture: PracticeWhat gestures might be appropriate with these phrases?“This needs to happen right now!”“I don’t care. It wasn’t my fault.”“…and BAM, it hit the floor!”
27Facial ExpressionsFacial expressions involve the use of eye brows, cheeks, lips, and other facial muscles to convey emotionSmiling is considered the most important facial expression because it increases the speaker’s likeability and credibility
28Facial Expressions: Practice Warm up your face by trying to get your face as small/big as possible!You just ate a lemonYou walk into a surprise party for your birthdayYou just got a full ride to the college of your dreamsStink eye / dirty lookYou have a question, but you are afraid to ask itYour parents are embarrassing you in front of your friendsYou walk into a crowded room and you scan the room until you friend your friends
29Additional Aspects of Delivery Avoid DistractionsSpeaker-created distractions are unintentional mannerisms or objects that can divert the attention of the audienceUse of NotesSpeakers often use outlines or index cards while speaking, don’t let them become a distractionUse of Lectern or PodiumThe podium should support and hide the speaker’s notesEffective speakers are aware of their hands even when using a lecternAppearanceAppearance includes attire, personal grooming, and hygieneAppearance affects the speaker’s credibility
