Peer Evaluation for: James Nose
Nov. 18, 2010

Introduction:
In the beginning of James’ speech he made a very good connection to the audience by asking who knew what the acronym BMI stood for. He then connected to those members of the audience who may not have known what BMI is, he did this by following up his question with a definition of what Body Mass Index actually is, to clarify. He also did a well job of establishing his credibility by knowing his information thoroughly, and displaying it well to the audience.

I often found myself relieved that I didn’t have to try to review the topics in my mind, because James was reviewing and previewing the topics. I believe the only other area where James may need work is the area where he is presenting to the audience facts...
