Hello UADC!

It’s hard to believe the school year is upon us!  I just wanted to tell you all that I am looking forward to seeing you all and talking about our new resolutions!

I’m sure several of you have already jump-started into research and I can’t wait to here what all you have discovered already.

See you soon!

C. Stephanie

Hey guys!  Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

Just some general housekeeping reminders for you…

  1.  Speech club is TOMORROW at 2nd Pres at 10AM.  That means no online club on Thursday.  COME ON OUT!  I have some games ready to go… and don’t forget to bring the speeches you want feedback on!
  2. Rounds are tomorrow for both policy & LD.
  3. In combined club, we are going to look at organization and blend that in with what we learned last week about vivid language.  I’m bringing candy… so be prepared to jump up and volunteer. 😉

I think that’s it!  See you then!

speech club online!

As we announced today in club, UADC speech club will be going to an online format for this fall semester.  This is definitely an EXPERIMENT!  Obviously, there will be some new kinks to work through, but we are really hoping that this will afford speech club both the time and flexibility that it needs to be helpful for you and your schedules!

Mrs. Rose mentioned a few guidelines about club, and I’ll go ahead and review them here:

  • Club will begin at 1pm on Thursdays and can go until 2:30pm.  If no one logs on by 1:15pm, I will log off and the club “window” is closed.
  • If you know you want help within the club time (1-2:30) but can’t log on at 1pm, shoot me an email by Thursday morning with the time that you will be logged on.  That way, if no one else doesn’t log on, I will know to come back and look for you at a certain time instead of completely closing down the club window.
  • You can participate in club by recording yourself doing your speech and sending it to me via YouTube link.  We will then watch it in club and critique it OR you can give us your speech “live” via web/computer/IPAD/whatever cam.
  • (I’m sure there will be more guidelines as this goes on, but those are the main ones as of now.)

Here’s how to log on:

  1. Have a gmail account and know how to access the google chat/hangout bar.
  2. Email me at communicatecharis [at] gmail [dot] com with your name and the gmail address you will be using.  I will add you to my contacts list.
  3. When you log on your account, put “in speech club” as a custom message with your chat status.  That way, I will know you are here for club and will add you to my hangout.  Do your best to be ready with that right at 1pm, so I can add us all at once.  (If you are late and the Hangout has already begun, open a chat with me and I will try and add you to the Hangout from my end.)

Like a mentioned before, there might be some kinks we need to work out– in fact, expect it, especially the first couple of weeks. 🙂  Hopefully, we will find our groove soon!

Thanks for being my guinea pigs!!!

(Of course, in order for you to take advance of online speech club time, you need to be a member of speech club– not just debate.   If you are not a member of speech club and would like to be, please contact our club administrator, Dawn Rose.)
