Videotaping and Extra Credit

I am offering extra credit to everyone who views their videotaped speeches on line and embeds comments to the speeches. GoReact allows you to write comments onto your speech as it is playing. You must use the GoReact sign in (available at the bookstore). I will post all speeches onto the site and then you will be able to watch and critique your speech.

I will also be adding critiques to everyone?s speech that wants critiques. Please let me know if you want to participate in this extra credit assignment.
