Notes for the Evaluator

The member completing this project is practicing active listening.

At your club meeting today, he or she is leading Table Topics.

Listen for:
A well-run Table Topics session.

As Topicsmaster, the member should make short, affirming statements after each speaker completes an impromptu speech, indicating he or she heard and understood each speaker.

For example, the member may say, "Thank you, Toastmaster Smith, for your comments on visiting the beach.

It sounds like you really appreciate how much your dog loves to play in the water." The goal is for the member to clearly show that he or she listened and can use some of the active listening skills discussed tin the project.

The member completing the project is the ONLY person who needs to show active listening.

The member should not try to teach or have others demonstrate active listening skills.

The member should follow all established protocols for a Table Topics session.
