Lesson plan and Prezi for covering stage fright in approximately 60 minutes in public speaking class or public speaking unit.
The lesson plan covers causes of speech anxiety, a variety of techniques to deal with it and a suggestion for timing speech preparation to minimize anxiety. I have used information from various textbooks along with a book by Randy Fujishin and research by Catherine Patrick. The material is not tied to any particular textbook.
The lesson plan is six pages and includes "if time" suggestions that can be used if your class is longer or if you want to sub them in for another part of the lesson plan. In my classes, this material would be covered on the second or third day of class.
The lesson plan contains URLs to descriptions of videos on my free blog. The videos are available for free at SimpsonsWorld.com with a login using a cable or DirecTV account number. The links to my blog below will give you the season and episode number along with a description of where in the episode to start the clip. At SimpsonsWorld, you can match specific episodes by season and episode number, then jump ahead to the spot in the episode.
The lesson plan includes a link to the prepared Prezi and instructions on how to get access to an editable version of the Prezi if you wish to make any changes to it.
