So what is most likely to help club members improve their speeches? The parents and students at Lone Star Christian Communicators, a speech and debate club in Austin, Isaiah was asked to give an hour talk on giving and receiving speech feedback in club.
Several parents thought it radically changed how they give feedback (and said leagues should provide this sort of training…), so Elijah Schow was kind enough to put some footage together to share.
Don’t forget that this and many other coaching videos are available on our YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/ethosdebate
