Let Me Demonstrate
By Beth Beutler
  

1     Insert flap A into slot B. Fold on the marked lines. There you have it�you have assembled a box!

3     To give a presentation that tells how to do something, including the steps to accomplishing it, is called a demonstrative speech.

I am going to do the same thing here with the following tips for preparing and delivering a demonstrative speech.
 
4     1. Determine your goal. Write down what you want the listeners to accomplish. Do you want them to be able to bake chocolate chip cookies? When you are finished, will they better understand how to make a paper airplane? Have a clear goal in mind for what the audience should learn.
