My biggest need is just the need to be better prepared and second to be more organized. Practice and opportunities to speak in front of a group will help to continue to develop speaking skills. During interviews, I dislike questions about how I feel or a time when I reacted a certain way. Just like in a speech situation I feel everything is moving too fast and I need to remember to slow down, take a breath and remember I’ll be fine.
I always start out with higher order concerns in their comments (after providing some positive feedback) before moving into lower order concerns, if that is necessary. I also do use the terminology of higher order concerns (focus, development, organization are the most frequent). Mostly for the papers that are really struggling or failing, I tend to move away from lower order concerns and focus on helping them with the bigger concerns. However, if there is a serious issue with lower order concerns, I usually include that in the end with a note that reminds them that while this doesn’t have a huge impact on their grade, it is still important information for them to keep in mind while writing. The tone in both the A paper versus the R paper is the same.
“ I think that Carving in Possibilities’ has a hot medium because it contains many senses. It uses a low quality image that turns into a high quality one with the help of the audience. Larsen’s poem also uses lyrics. It also has sound effects every time the audience reads a new line. It also uses internet, instead of print, which is accessible to most of the world right now.

There are several quotes included in this notebook that focus on resilience. For me, I myself find that quotes also help me when I feel like I want to give up. They’re inspirational and make people feel a lot better and sometimes they even make then want to pursue what they want or need and to keep going. It could make them realise that the the situation they are in right now is not the final destination and that they can change where they are. These quotes are motivational.
I am a leader, a whole hearted person that believes in the greater good, a selfless individual, an intellectual young adult, and a brave character, and it is on account of these qualities that I feel Montclair State University is the school for me. Being that I am an individual that has matured intellectually, emotionally, and now has the motivation needed to seek a positive trajectory and path in life, and I believe this school could only help further my growth as a person and strengthen my academic abilities. Writing has always been one of my strong suits and it is the best method I’ve learned as a way to express myself.

From what I have practiced this statement is correct but it is very difficult to accomplish this as a new coach. This might happen to me because of being nervous and doubtful of my own level of ability for coaching.

I tried to stick to the model this occasionally I felt like the model was restricting the conversation.
Job Corps allowed me to leave home and public school which opened up a lot of opportunities for me and increased my ability to do more things. I like to do things my way, and being allowed to leave home and not having to attend public school with the same annoying people every day freed my mind and helped me to actually slow down and think about situations before reacting in an aggressive way. Knowing that I have less on my mind now allows me to actually listen to what people like my mother, father, and other elders are saying to me and increases my chances of making the right decisions. Being able to listen to what people saying is helping me see things from more than one point of view. That’s why leaving public school and going to Finch Henry Job Corps Center was the best choice I could have ever
One thing I realized was that I do a better job when I take my time and let the talk flow on its own speed rather than asking previously planned, and directive questions that may sometimes break the continuity of the talk. This is a bit hard for me to do, since I am an introvert; but I know that I have to become an extrovert when it is necessary. With that said, I have to plan my talks regardless, because I tend to get very nervous when I do not know how to resume the conversation. Anyways, I now have an idea about how to strategically place planned questions into the flowing conversation. This is the biggest yield of this
It makes me to concentrate on the main topic and don’t go over it. Sometimes I made my topics longer because I don’t want to forget what I’m going to talk about. Speech plan can make things complicated as well. What if we are short on time and we need to jump of the few topics. Because we memories the speech plan is hard to jump off from our topics and that can be problem.
At first, I was nervous about the extra workload and how this could effect my grades, but looking back, applying for the honors program was one of the smartest things I could have done. The program offers many opportunities, such as conferences and traveling, to learn more about my major and much more. The honors program asks that we create a thesis in our senior year. I believe that this will be very beneficial in that it will make us well rounded in our subjects of study. It will prove to our peers and future employers that we are educated in our fields and prepared to start working in the real world.

Eleonora Hasani Comm 145 Online “Just Bag it” Speech Self-Evaluation 1. I gained my audience’s attention through an ironic joke. By asking my audience if they hated when people answered their own questions, and then proceeded to answer my own question saying I hated it, I got them interested in what else I had to say. 2. I feel like I introduced by topic clearly by stating in my introduction paragraph that I wanted to give the audience a “glimpse of my life” and then followed it with my thesis that included the three items I was going to talk about. 3.
