Did you follow the directions?
Eight of 11 students did submit a file I could listen to.
However, a significant number of you did not do it as it was assigned.
What was the problem?
Today’s quiz is pretty simple. Go to the link and answer some simple questions. I need to know what went wrong
- my instructions
- the due date/time was unexpected/earlier than you thought
- unexpected computer/headset problems (aka Audacity errors, can’t create MP3)
- upload problems (Google issues)
- lack of computer/internet access.
Even if you had no problems, I need you to go to the quiz and fill it out anyway. It will give me a sense of what did work.
Why is this important?
You need the opportunity to practice. I want to give you some helpful comments to make your speech better. Because we have a limited amount of time in class, this is the best way I can think of to give you the opportunity to practice and get feedback before you go live.
From my perspective, there was one major problem.
I didn’t get them until very late – Friday afternoon. That makes giving you comments very hard. That’s on me. I’m going to set an earlier due date in the future.
We will be doing more recordings. They will be due on Wednesdays at 5 p.m.
Do you have any questions for me?
I’ve heard from a couple of parents that students are emailing me with no response. I’ve checked my spam folders and none of you are in there.

Just a reminder – We will have impromptu speaking next week if we have time. Do you want to be in charge of impromptu speaking?
