Basic Instructions & Category Options

Students must begin their speech by citing the reference material. Students should make their presentation come alive through facial and vocal expressions. Some gestures and body movements may be appropriate to enhance the presentation but are not required. When used, gestures and body movements should be for emphasis, not to draw “word pictures” with the hands or to act out a scene. Gestures should not be overdone—the face and voice should tell the story. The speech should be a natural interpretive presentation, with no excessive exaggeration. 

Note: Body movement refers to shrugging shoulders, etc.; students do not walk about during the presentation.
