Assignment: The Demonstration Speech

Demonstration SpeechAssignment:  High School and Middle School classes

MS Date:  Oct. 24 and Oct. 31

HS Date:  Oct. 24

Time of speech:  5 to 7 minutes

Topic:  What You Can Do With a Plastic Knife

Notes:  You will demonstrate how to build or create a project with a plastic knife. This speech must include some visual aid. Speech time: 4-7 minutes.

Purpose: to teach organization of speech and use of visual aids.

You will build models of the steps you want to demonstrate in the speech and use them to show the process of creation of the project.

Think about why someone would want to do this project and include it in your introduction or conclusion.

Consider the space we have for the speech and plan to come early to the class for set-up and warm-up.



  1. You asked for Us to tell you what we were going to do stage-moving-wise, so I am. There is a legitimate “so” for you! 🙂 Anyway, I would like to use one of the longer tables to move in a line.
    Thank you.

  2. Thanks so much I thought the speech time was only seven min. I felt like I would fail😀.

  3. If its not too much trouble I would like to use one of the small circular tables on each side of the stage for my speech like you suggested last class Mrs. Kraji.

  4. I think I am going to need just one table for my demonstration. Can’t wait to give my speech on Monday!

  5. I want a long table, because I have a lot of steps to do. My mom thinks that I should give everyone else a chance to make the light catcher, do you think that is okay?
