If you are teaching a Public Speaking course, or trying to improve your own presentation skills, this program will help you in the following ways:The instructor introduces each step and directs the participants to read about each step in the Participant s workbook. The instructor then plays Step 1: The Approach on the DVD. This step is further explained on the DVD and modeled. Several participants are shown attempting Step 1 on the DVD and are gently critiqued. They repeat the process to improve if needed. After viewing this step on the DVD, each of your participants are asked to attempt the step and are gently critiqued by you the instructor.

The above procedure is followed for each of the 8 steps.
Once the participants have mastered the individual 8 steps they are now ready to attempt to put them all together in a presentation. The DVD shows participants doing a formal presentation including all four of the first 8 steps and being individually evaluated using the rubric. The instructor can now do the same exercise with his participants and evaluate them. In some training sessions, a variation of this evaluation has been used. Participants are asked to evaluate themselves and the other participants are asked to evaluate their peers and share their evaluations. Instructors may use any of these types of evaluations to assist their participants in improving their skills.
