Anyone familiar with the 2014 comencement speech given by Jim Carey?? I need a 2 page critique / analysis on a commencement speech given by Jim Carey to the Maharishi University of Management | May 24, 2014.  This is a public speaking class so I must give strengths and weaknesses based on a public speaking standpoint. For example, what visual aids were used, speaking style, non verbal ques, hand gestures, facial expressions, etc.  I will give you some things that I liked about the commencement speech and you can watch it for yourself and put your own insight into it.  Below are the instructions.  Remember, this is a public speaking class and the assignment is a critique of a commencement speech.  The link to the speech (both written and video) is below.  

Students must research and critique a speech and write an analysis of the speech (2 pages). The final draft should be typed, double-spaced. A works cited section should be included at the end of the paper, following APA Format for all sources used. 

The written analysis should include:

  • setting/purpose of speech
