Instructor: Jim Kuypers, Speech Department
Overview: This project involves the production of a searchable speech bank for use by instructors and students of Speech. The goal is to digitally tape students as they give speeches in Speech 21 (Informative Speaking) and Speech 25 (Persuasive Speaking) during winter 2000. These speeches will then be edited and stored for use by future speech classes. The editing will consist of providing samples of specific modules within the speeches. Multiple examples will be available for introductions, thesis statements, connectives, hypothetical and factual illustrations, etc. The instructor will use these speeches and examples for classroom lectures, and students will be able to view these speeches as exemplars while preparing their own speeches. Importantly, these speeches will be by Dartmouth students who would have previously taken the same classes, therefore providing true classroom-specific examples.
