One thing I do know is that I especially appreciate my students when I deliver the speech. They really listen carefully, which is always gratifying for a teacher.
One thing I must confess is that I muffed my lines this time in several places. Sometimes I deliver the talk entirely from memory, and sometimes I use a cheat sheet, as I did today. I'm going for memory next time, but that takes a lot of practice. I'd better get started.
Here is the YouTube video with the Patrick Henry "lesson" and speech. James Myers, one of my students in the class did the camera-work.
