Finally, speakers should consider time limits when choosing an informative speech topic. A topic should be covered thoroughly enough that the audience feels as if most of their questions on the topic have been answered. On the other hand, a tight time restriction may prevent the speaker from adequately covering a very intricate topic. When time is limited, a subject which requires lengthy explanation should be avoided. The audience should leave an informative speech feeling as if they’ve gained new insight on a topic. It is good if they are interested in doing their own research to learn more about the subject, but they should never leave the presentation feeling confused or unclear about what they have just heard.
DuPont is also very grateful for the support that thousands of science teachers have given The DuPont Challenge over the years. In fact, the success of The DuPont Challenge has been due in large part to the commitment of the entire science education community. We give special thanks to our partners at the National Science Teachers Association, Encyclopedia Britannica, , and A+ Media. The prizes and awards for the 2015-2016 awards will be fulfilled and our winning teachers will be recognized at the 2017 NSTA conference in Los Angeles.
I find this an odd remark. Dr. Senior wrote out a list. Then it was typed. After several years, it was photo-copied, retyped, and eventually sent around by email over the course of 30 years. It was put in print recently in his book, The Death of Christian Culture (also available in ebook format). In the process of writing this article, I received version by pdf and email. Now I have added the original list to a website, which is– for many readers– linked to their Facebook or LinkedIn pages. I believe your own posting in the “com box” testifies to the success of putting these “excellent ideas” “within that reality.” No? That John Senior’s list has appeared in so many media attests to the enduring worth and ongoing attraction of his views.
