There has been much research done on stage fright, but unfortunately, little of it can be applied specifically to actions a speech teacher can take to solve the problem in the classroom. Stage fright, anxiety, or speech apprehension (terms used synonymously in the report) has been measured, observed, and found to be related to different aspects of personality and audience perception.
