Speech self-assessment

The self-assessment should be between 450 and 600 words. You will assess your own performance in terms of the criteria for public speaking we addressed in class.

The good is what God wills

T​‌‌‍‌‍‌‍‌‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‍‌​he editors of our text point out that there is an ambiguity in the claim: ‘the good is what God wills’.
