  • Joke Day!--Joke Day Presentations
    • Today you will share TWO jokes with the class.
      • You will receive a Laffy Taffy with a joke on it. You may use this joke if you wish.
      • You may choose to write one or two jokes.
      • You may use your digital device to find one or two jokes online.
      • You may get jokes from others in your speech group
      • Share your jokes with your speech group. Get feedback and make adjustments before presenting to the class.
    • Presenter Requirements
      • The joke should be PG-13 at most. (If you wouldn't be comfortable telling this joke to your parents or grandparents--or your Public Speaking teacher for that matter--it's best to come up with something else.)
      • Don't tell jokes that are based on offensive stereotypes. (The purpose of this speech is for all of us to have some fun and a few laughs, not hurt the feelings of others and/or make enemies. It's best to stay away from other teachers or students in the class, but if you'd like to poke fun at me or my class, that's OK.)
      • You may choose to present your two jokes with the aid of notecards, a manuscript, your digital device, or from memory. (Any method is fine, really.)
      • Each joke does not have to be long. For example, knock-knock jokes are brief, but still meet the requirements of this assignment. (At most, your two jokes should total no more than 2 minutes.)
      • Your joke does not have to be funny. (As I've said before, 90% of students don't get my jokes and the 10% who do don't think they are funny. I'm not a natural comedian and I don't expect you to be either. And in some cases, a terribly bad joke turns out to be quite humorous because of how awful it really is. Even if the entire class stares at you with a blank zombie look, you will still earn full credit for presenting your two jokes.)
    • Audience Requirements
      • Watch and listen to each presenter. Be a great listener.
      • Applaud when finished.
