Good attention getter to get audience involvement. Sometimes you got your words jumbled so if that happens just take a breath and start over don't try to keep going because it makes it a little bit hard to understand. Overall the content was really good and I really liked your TED challenge. Well done!
Steven: Good job keeping the audience engaged and laughing while talking about a serious subject. You spoke with confidence and made sure you got your point across. Very good job!
I loved your speech, you were very collected and comfortable. You should be proud of yourself for going first.
I loved how you used different voice inflections and were so knowledgeable. You really seemed passionate and it made your talk really interesting. Thanks for starting us off on a great note!
Steven, your presentation was great. I enjoyed how you added humor but also made points that were well thought out. I might suggest that you slow down just a little bit so the audience has more time to pick up on what you are saying.
Steven had great volume and emotion during his speech, as well as solid facts, but it was a little rushed and there wasn't much eye contact.
I really liked the enthusiasm you put into this speech. I could tell that you really cared about this topic and had a lot to share. Your Ideas flowed together really well, and it made a really coherent speech.
Steven, you had a great presentation. Great attention-getter, and nice job using your hands throughout your presentation. Nice job incorporating humor and working under the pressure, but you might want to work on not getting your words mixed up and talking too fast.
Fast, good dramatic tone it gets our attention. I like the 3 main points and how you told us what they were. Connected to us, friendly tone. You made us laugh, it was educational, you connected, good pregnant pauses. Makes sense. Didn't seem scripted, which is good. YOUR CHALLENGE WAS AWESOME!!! YOU'RE VOICE MATCHED THE EXCITEMENT OF THE TOPIC AND JUST MADE THAT PRESENTATION!!! Good job!
I think Steven's speech was very rushed, but there were many components and a lot of information. It wasn't hard to follow even it was quick-paced. I think his ideas are very valid and applicable to all of our lives.
Steven, you sounded very professional during your TED talk. Your voice tone and eye contact mimicked the ones that professionals we have watched in class. Nice job!
I loved that it sounded like a real TED talk with the facts and connections to our student lives. Also it seemed laid back and relaxed. I also liked how you liked how you explained all 3 points well
Kudos to you for being the first to present! You were loud and proud and set a high bar for the rest of us to reach. It was well paced and you had good posture, so no distractions from your presentation. Great work!
Steven,I enjoyed listening to your TED Talk! Your point was very clear, and I can tell that you put a lot of time and effort into this speech. One thing to improve on would be putting more emotion and passion into your subject. Otherwise, your speech was interesting and you were yourself. Good job!
Steven, first of all I loved you topic. I agree with you so much and am so glad that you presented it in such a dignified and fluent manner. You stood very well, great posture, lovely speaking voice, and you didn't speak too fast or to slow by any means whatsoever. Your slides really meshed with your speech and your passion really showed. Stellar job.
Awesome job Steven! You spoke well and strong and made your tone of voice reflect the passion that you were feeling for the topic. I really liked your attention-getter and your visuals. Way to go!
You did a great job raising your voice loud enough so we could all hear what you had to say clearly. Also, you did good not moving your hands too much or too little, you did just the right amount. I loved you topic about how we need balance in my life, I feel like that is something really important right now. Great job!
Really good speech. I really loved your intro and examples. You seemed very confident. There were a few times were you talked a little quickly but other than that, you did fantastic. Thank you for sharing your ideas. This is from Sophie( I was unable to sign in)
Steven, the speech was well done, and the topic was very interesting. The major points were very good at supporting the main idea. Just sped up there at the end to finish but fantastic job Stevie.
Wonderful attention getter and great confidence in presenting- also, fantastic job on your memorization of the speech. Sometimes your phrasing fell apart, but you always managed to pull it back together. Great job!
Great job Steven! I loved the way you maintained great eye contact with everyone, and your voice was strong and emphasized the importance of your topic. And your supporting examples were amazing! The only advice I could possible give is that you sounded a bit rushed. But overall, you did amazing!
Great job i really liked your attention getter! At times you spoke alittle fast but still great!
The attention getter definitely got my attention - it flowed well into the thesis. Overall, talking speed was a bit fast, though the speech filled the 5 minutes almost perfectly and I could still completely understand what he was saying. Content was good - he used facts to back up his opinions. It was humorous as well as factual and really helped to get his point across of being a well-rounded individual.
Steven: Wow! Way to kick it off! I think that your ideas were very well developed, and I had fun listening to your speech. Very inspiring.
