I am supposed to be writing an Introduction speech about my debate partner in my public speaking class. The criteria is 3 min total, 1 1/2 min for each because he'll intro me as well, written in outline form, and no notes while speaking. I have notes about him from an interview, but I really don't know where to go from there. I think my anxiety about it is preventing me from being able to write anything and it is due tomorrow.
Start with an attention getting statement. Something like.... Mr. ......, my debate partner can juggle, whistle Dixie and read the Debate Quarterly all at the same time.
Then, concentrate on the accomplishments of his school career and debate career...just hit the high points. Then go back to your introduction... although you would have enjoyed Mr. ....'s performance talents, I am sure you will find his debate skills even more interesting.....
