How to Prepare a Speech for Class or School Gathering?
Here are 5 points that you need to follow from making a theme of your speech to how you are going to get applause.
1. Choosing a Theme
The first step is going to pick a theme about which you are going to deliver a speech. It depends on the event if there is a regular school assembly then you can deliver a speech on Time Management or Motivation or Thoughts of the day etc. You need to choose a topic for that event. You need to collect complete information about that topic. One important thing is that you only focus on one theme or topic at a time. For Example, you don’t need to give a speech on time management and pollution. You and your audience should know on which topic you are delivering the speech.
2. Building Confidence & Overcome Fear
Do you feel that you don’t have the self-confidence to deliver the speech in front of everyone? Here are 4 points that can help you to reduce your anxiety:-
- Remember while giving the speech you are the leader among all. Prepare your topic in a manner that you know much better than anyone of them in that particular topic, it will build your confidence.
- Don’t try to calm down, Yes after research it was found that 90% of people think that calming down is the best strategy to overcome the anxiety about speaking. But actually, it’s not. You shouldn’t say to yourself ‘I am Calm’ You should say ‘I am Excited’.
- Before that event practice in front of the mirror, the more you practice, the more you become good at public speaking.
- Know the audience, You need to know which types of people are there in the assembly and prepare your speech accordingly.
A good orator is pointed and impassioned.
3. How do you start a speech topic at school?
Your first impression is how you are going to start in the school assembly. If your start is outstanding then you will capture the attention of everyone instantly. A good start of a speech can be from ‘a Golden Statement’, ‘a question’, or ‘an unexpected surprise’. This is the beginning of the speech after the introduction. For example, You ask everyone in the beginning that “What is the most expensive thing in the world?” Everyone will start assuming it might be whatever or whatever. Then you tell that nothing is more important than time. Well, if your theme of the speech is about time management or the importance of time. This is my personal experience, I also gave that speech on the Importance of time in my school time, and my first speech went awesome because I am well prepared.
Always give a speech that you would like to hear.
4. Story is Must in School Assembly
Many Good Speaker tells a story in their speech And in the school assembly, it is very important to narrate a story because students learn more from the story and keep remembering that for a long time. If your speech is about time management then you can narrate a story related to it. Also, you can start your speech with a story.
If you don’t use stories audience members may enjoy your speech, but there is no chance they’ll remember it
