UC 120 Cari Cost Mrs. Lasure TTH 9:30-10:45 “Coffee Marbling “ I think my speech on marbling a coffee mug went smoothly. I believe my voice projection was loud enough and consistent throughout the speech. I also remembered to do my Bill of Materials, which I was very nervous about forgetting. I think overall my greatest strength was not having to rely on my notecard as much as I thought I would.
In the past, I have participated in a lot of classes and professional training dealing with many different types topics, but unfortunately, public speaking and or communications played very little roles in these classes. I will be talking about my past experiences public speaking and what I 'm expecting to gain out of SVC 101. I have been in the US Air Force for 12.5 years now, I did not do any real Professional Military Education (PME) until about the five year mark where I went through Airman leadership school, (ALS), where we dabbled very briefly on public speaking. Fast Forward 7 years later I honestly can 't remember much from the class. Since then I have had the opportunity to do a couple public speeches, some of which have been in front of rather large crowds.
Eleonora Hasani Comm 145 Online “Just Bag it” Speech Self-Evaluation 1. I gained my audience’s attention through an ironic joke.

Self-evaluation of Class Presentation The controversial speech that I presented to the class discussed the benefits of a self-driving car.

After reviewing my tribute speech about my son Scott, I noticed details that at the moment I did not realize what I was doing wrong. I noticed I sway through the entire presentation and played with the paper a lot as well as playing with my hair and earing at 3 minutes and again at 6 minutes and 43 seconds into the speech. Not only was I guilty of these issues, I also realized my organization was a little off kilter. I rushed through the speech along with not looking up from the paper as much as I should have and I need to work on my pronunciation. Looking back at my presentation it was obvious that I was extremely nervous, making me sway back and forth along with playing with my earrings.
Introduced in the 1970s and continues to grow in popularity, tanning beds are the product of how an individual can harm his/her skin, yet also can lead indoor tanners to have a dependency like alcohol or drugs (Time Magazine, np).

For my Informative Speech in COMM 210, I wanted to inform my class on my workplace, Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. The specific purpose of my speech was for my audience to know the past, present, and achievements of this theme park by the end of my speech. I feel I achieve this pretty well. For this speech, I was much more comfortable in front of the class. This allowed me to keep it together and not let my nerves get to the best of me.
Strength has been a topic of debate and research in the field of Positive Psychology since many years. Some believe that strength is a ‘capacity for feeling, thinking, and behaving in a way that allows optimal functioning in pursuit of valued out comes’ (Linley and Harrington, 2007). Others suggest that our strengths are ‘the psychological ingredients – processes and mechanisms- that define morally valued virtues’ (Peterson and Seligman, 2004).

My husband and I are so used to actively giving and receive feedback. We no longer take this personal. We have come to a point to understand that this helps us in the manner we deal with issues and communicate as a family unit. I still need to implement this in my career and I think it will take a bit of time because I am still working on the feedback I received during the program. It opened my eyes on things that I need to work on.
After presenting my informative speech, I felt that this speech was better than my introduction speech. When I chose to do this speech on Wonder Woman, I was very motivated throughout the whole time I researched and rehearsed this topic.

One of my friends told me that she was looking forward to my speech because she was curious about the topic of superheroes. Overall, I was able to inform my audience about Wonder Woman, specifically her origins, super abilities, and impact on feminism.
