In my recent presentation and public speaking class, I got the highest evaluation score that I've ever received in a class: 98%. It was my first time teaching this type of class, so the potential was definitely there for it to be not as fabulous as it could have been. However, there was a perfect storm of motivated, friendly students, interesting content that the students had never studied before, a teacher excited to teach something besides beginner conversation, and a most fabulous book (thanks Kotesol Facebook site for the rec's). Speaking of Speech by David Harrington. I really, truly cannot say enough good things about it. Go get it. And, also check out Presentation Expressions which is something I most definitely wish I'd found before teaching this class.
