Specially designed for extempers in NCFCA and Stoa leagues. Each package of Gold Cards comes with 25 standard 3×5 gold index cards with perforations allowed for proper folding.
Comes with instructions on how to apply the 4-fold method to maximize the real estate of the card as well as the short seven-minutes allowed for speaking. Written by Extemporaneous Champion Cody Herche:
Hold your card in the portrait position, so that the longer (5″) edge is the vertical axis. Now bend the card exactly in the middle so that the 5″ edge is bisected into two equal-sized sections. Holding the folded card like a book in his hand, the extemper has four sides to write on. The “front cover” (introduction/conclusion), the “inside page” (point 1), the “outside page” (point 2), and the “back cover” (point 3). By “turning” the pages of the “book” to follow the speech, the extemper can always have the appropriate notes available. If the extemper’s hand is large enough, the card can be partially or even completely obscured from the audience’s vision.
Enjoy extemp’s Gold Cards for your extemporaneous speaking preparation!
