Go to YouTube.com and search for “College Student Informative Speech” or “College Student Persuasive Speech”. The presentation should include a speaker/presenter (that you can see and hear) delivering a message. You cannot choose a professional presentation such as TEDx or TEDTalk. 

Here are a few of the categories your instructor will use for evaluating your speech this week. See if you can use these categories to assess the speech you find online. You are not required to provide feedback in all of these areas for the speech you select for this discussion board. It is helpful and useful for you to see these categories and it’s a great starting point for constructive feedback for the presenter you’re evaluating from YouTube.
