This speech spotlight episode features Lizzy Cozzens, a four-year Rock Springs Tiger, team leader, and talented orator who delivered many strong platform speeches back in her competition days. Lizzy shared one her favorite oratories - a powerful speech entitled "Deadly Dancing."
A quick word about how to use these speech spotlight episodes. First, enjoy a high quality, very well done speech. The speech spotlight is another opportunity for students to share their unique and powerful voice to an audience in a new audio format. So, sit back and enjoy some brilliance from our speech and debate community. Second, consider how you might use this speech as a model for students who are looking to write and perform their own original oratories. Third, these speeches could be excellent learning tools for coaches and competitors. Actively reflecting on what makes a speech powerful, effective, or even flawed can help coaches and competitors add more tools and ideas to their own speaking toolboxes.
Be on the lookout for one more upcoming episode featuring an interview with Lizzy. I also have some really helpful resources that Lizzy put together for novice Orators that she has kindly shared out and adapted for others to use. I'll be posting these resources as articles on the website soon.
