Of course, it was very good for speaking class. The writer and most of other students practiced actively in speaking instead of keeping silent as did during this times. This situation much influenced by speaking ability. Agreeing with other students when the interview is a student named Fitri said that the debate could improve speaking ability because it requires students to express their
The course work is designed to help all students learn at their level. I was scared to answer questions especially for a course at this level. I was scared I would have the wrong answer, but it will get better. I felt many things when starting this class, I was nervous about meeting my classmates. I knew that this would be a class that I would want to find people to study with, but was unsure of how to talk to others.
I tried to point out the fact that not only one or two features of his speech made it powerful and effective; but all the combined techniques made him achieve it. I analyzed how he raised his voice in the right time to create an exciting atmosphere, and how he lowered his voice down to draw attention and make the students listen carefully. I analyzed his gestures, how he squinted his eyes to show his passion, or opened up his hands to be more effective. I showed how he stretched some words to stress them, or how he used call-to-action in order to be more memorable and effective. I kept pointing out how he involved his students in the speech from the start, for I think it was one of the most important features of his speech.
14.3 Starts with a Bang, Ends with a Whimper 1. What characteristics of excellence were lacking in this force?In this case, I believe that there are several characteristics of excellence missing. There was no clear, elevating goal, external support and recognition, principled leadership, and results-driven structure. It appears that the team did start off with a strong commitment which burned out toward the end. They also seemed to lose their standard for excellence and collaborative climate because of the lack of direction and leadership.
For the first part of this assignment I was required to report on how I saw myself as a communicator. In this second half, I have interviewed my mom, boyfriend and a new friend I made last semester to see how I communicate with others. Listening My Mom claimed I have selective hearing. She said that she can tell when I’m listening to her because I contribute to the conversation. She goes on to say that I only listen to people when they have something interesting to say or if it benefits me.
It is somewhat similar to APA which I have used in the past, but has some contrasting differences that makes it standout on its own. I like to think I have given a good amount of effective review to my peers so far; which is something that has really developed during the duration of this course. In high school I always struggled at telling others what should be done to create an effective paper because I was more sensitive and afraid of hurting others feelings. Now, I have come to the realization of how
As mentioned in my previous journals the tutor is the backbone in my learning journey for this course. As a convention, I try and read the tutor’s comments several times to occupy in the real message so that I can concentrate on my faults. Because writing composition has always been my challenge I try and pay close attention so that I don’t keep taking in the same errors. Although, my emphasis is normally on what the ask of the assignment is, but I feel I get side tracked and make the mistakes that I can avoid in the interim. For the most part I conceive I’m ok, but at times I get swayed out with long sentences.
Furthermore, I found that studying in the beginning with my slides and practicing with my slides like the book said in the beginning till I felt comfortable with them made it much easier for me to get my timing down when I started to not look at my slides. In conclusion, preparing effectively and properly for this speech was different then another other speech so far but it taught me many things I didn’t know before and taught me how to effectively use a
I gave my students way too many opportunities to break their focus from the lesson. I believe one reason I have not caught onto this before is because these students are really good students. However, I will not always have really good students. Even if I am giving a certain student the attention they need, I need to pay more attention to how much time I spend with my back to the rest of the students. Another thing I learned from the video of my lesson is that
Before coming to the United States of America I didn’t like public speaking at all and was always scared giving presentation or speeches. Whenever I had to give speeches in front of the class I would always get very nervous and would do a lot of practice in front of the mirror which was really helpful for me and helped me ace my speech. My teachers would always say I have a very loud and confident voice but the only thing I had to work was on my nervousness which led to lack of eye contact and not able to stand still while delivering the speech. But I have participated in a lot of shows and plays in school which boosted my confidence. When I took public speaking in the winter quarter I was really excited for it as I liked presenting in front of people and I wanted to overcome my lack of abilities while delivering the speech.
