GROUP ACTIVITY: WOULD YOU RATHER?
(12 MIN)
The Spotlight Effect:
Purpose: One of the most difficult aspects of Public Speaking is making eye contact and scanning the
audience.
Focus at looking at people’s eyes in a NON-CREEPY WAY! If that is too hard to do, then look at their
foreheads.
We will split into small group:
1) Each individual will have his or her turn to answer a Would you Rather Question!!!
2) All other members in the group will start off putting two hands in the air until the speaker
makes eye contact with him or her. Then he or she will put one hand down when looked at.
3) The Speaker should continue speaking until all hands are put down. To do this, the speaker
needs to look at each audience member at least 2 times.
