1. Preparing an Impromptu Speech: Topic Choice, Outline Preparation & Practice
An impromptu speech requires thinking on your feet, but that does not mean there aren't a few rules to follow, preparation and practice involved. Impromptu speeches need some of the same kind of planning as any speech.
2. Developing an Impromptu Persuasive Speech
An impromptu persuasive speech involves developing a strong spur of the moment argument for the speaker's cause. It requires several steps in order to call the audience to action.
3. Developing an Impromptu Informative Speech
Unlike a prepared informative speech, an impromptu speech of the same type allows very little time for research and preparation. But there are several things a speaker can plan for prior to delivering an impromptu speech.
4. Impromptu Speech Rubric
Using rubrics helps students aim for a standard and helps teachers offer balanced grading for all students. This lesson offers a sample impromptu speech rubric, and includes standards for grading each main element of a speech.
