This week’s Monument Coach Release is the current release for Platform speeches.
There are numerous “platform” speeches where competitors write and deliver their own informational or persuasive speech. Most forensic leagues offer platforms like Oratory, Persuasive, Informational Speaking, and many other unique forms of platform speaking. Monument Members hear from champions who have enjoyed success in various platform categories. They include their own speech as well as give pointers to members for their preparation.
This week we view the insights of a particular student who only changed 3 things right before the national tournament in order to achieve 5th place. As coaches and parents, it’s important to realize that what we say and what the student implements can be the line between preliminary rounds and being a finalist.
NOTE: This release may be distributed to non-members without violating copyright. The only member requirement is the coach. Use as you wish to enhance your class and spur young people on toward speech and debate competition.
