Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Why should you care about the history leading up to the speech?

It helps to understand why the person gave the speech

It is a requirement for graduation

You only need to know about the history if you are interested in the subject

2. How does studying the text of a speech help your writing skills?

You learn how to spell and punctuate correctly

You learn shortcuts in writing by using abbreviations

You can see how effective wording can bring across a message

3. What is a good way to improve your speaking skills?

Since good speakers have a natural ability, there is no way to improve

Read great speeches out loud

Practice moving your lips slowly

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Learning from Historical Speeches. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
