Teaching speech is no easy task, as public speaking is one of the most common fears among students and people.

One thing that will help you in your quest is a quality textbook. Textbooks will map out the basics of oratory and break up and explain hand gestures, eye contact and voice intonations. Information on timing, writing and sentence structure will be given so that the students are able to understand it and remember it. More importantly, it will enable them to make their speeches memorable.
