Casey Green 1 09/13/11 SPC 100 Section 14 The Great Debaters This film focuses on being a confident and decisive person in life, through passionate and informed topics. Public speaking is the process of speaking to a group of people in a
It is argued by some commentators that having nerves can improve your performance (Lancaster and Janes, 1994). Feelings of nervousness helped me to focus on my presentation however things did not go the way I planned them. I can only
The second presentation to be analysed is an informative speech delivered by a student named Vicky. Vicky attended her speech wearing appropriate attire for her audience. In my opinion, I think she was dressed appropriately, but she should have dressed in a server attire to enhance the mood of her speech. One of Vicky’s flaws in her presentation was her body language. Although she obtained good eye contact with her audience, she had some difficulties with her gestures and movements that could give off the wrong impression to her audience, such as using too many gestures with her hands and she often swayed while she was talking. These gestures could portray that she was nervous. Another fault she illustrated was her stance in which her hip was
My volume and background noise was perfect and I made sure to try and keep a smile in my voice to try and mask my nervousness! Based on the feedback of my audience, I do believe that my message was received loud and clear on the presentation. Also, the questions from the others made me feel like they thought what I was saying was very interesting. My conclusion, in my opinion, was very soft and wasn’t as strong as it needed to be. I tried to be sure that I left my audience with something to think about and try and maybe go on a scavenger hunt in their daily lives to find things that may be a skill I did not list. As with everything, I need improvement in a few areas. The use of the word “um” needs to be nonexistent! Maybe that was my anxiety and nervousness coming out? Either way, I need to eliminate the word from my vocabulary especially when presenting. Also, with my tone of voice, in a few sections, sounded like I was reading off paper. Even if I was those few times, I need to change how I read and my tone when reading. My storylines were off the topic in one section, so I need to be able to go over my presentation and outline a few times before going live to make sure I am saying everything I want to say at the appropriate
I am really looking forward to this course. I hope it is going to expand my horizons and open me up to Indigenous culture. I am metis but my father and grandfather consider themselves apples-red on the outside, white on the inside. They spoke of no positives of having native blood and were/are constantly racist toward their own kind. They both feel a hatred towards Indigenous people because of the stereotypes associated with them, and have pushed the culture away instead of embracing it and proving stereotypes wrong. My grandfather died hating who he was and I want to prevent that in myself and my dad and I think the more I can learn about Indigenous thought the more prepared I will be to do so.
RESPONSE PAPER – INTRODUCTION I think I was very well prepared to present my introduction. To prepare myself for this presentation, first I made myself relax and calm. Second I did my introduction outline (speech plan) to present, which I found very helpful to me during my presentation. It helps me to put my all word (ideas) together to complete my thought. Also it help me to memories my main points.
In relation to my preparation for the presentation, I practiced multiple times on my own as well as in front of my peers in order to be familiar with my content and be able to present confidently without stuttering. As a result, I felt
Individual Reflection: As the first group to present, there was a lot of pressure to set the bar for the class. As my first speech to be given in front of a class; I was quite nervous. In preparation for the speech, we individually researched “Catharsis”. My position, the conclusion, was
Overcoming Speech Apprehension Nervousness, ranging from slight edginess full-blown panic, plagues large numbers of adults and students whenever they are required to give oral presentations. It is quite common to be nervous when addressing an audience. Butterflies in the stomach, sweaty palms, and rapid heart rate are only a few
The way in which presentations are developed is important; presentations can be slideshows, practical demonstrations, training etc. When developing presentations, you need to ensure that you prepare; define the purpose and the objective that you want to get across to the audience so you know what you are aiming for and the research that needs to be undertaken prior to the presentation to ensure that this is achieved. Knowing what media, format and content is the most appropriate and would be the most effective is important as it can help in the process of planning and also the audience that you need to base your presentation around as some presentation types may be more beneficial to them than others. Before the presentation is to take
The Gospel of Luke Jesus describes his purpose as one of preaching the good news of the Kingdom of God, saying, “I must preach the good news of the Kingdom of God to other towns as well, for I was sent for this purpose.” (Luke 4:43) Jesus
Welcome back! Thank you for joining me in going just a little deeper in discovering how Jesus kept Himself from resentment. The following passage took place in September or October of 29AD right before the Feast of Tabernacles (Booths). This feast was a time of celebration and thanksgiving for
God can be viewed as a hero through the eyes of many different people in many different religions. He is a spiritual guide to people of all ages all over the world. I have never been a religious person and I have never been exposed to any type of religion. I have just recently been taking an interest in God, but it has been mostly within the Christian and Catholic religions. I think it is truly incredible how God has such a powerful connection with people that He has and never will be able to meet. The comfort that comes with having a reason for everything that happens in the world is intriguing. Learning more about God will allow me to better understand how His spiritual guidance has affected His people and how it has led them to believe that He is a hero.
Practice your presentation. You must be thoroughly prepared and present yourself as professionally as possible, especially if you hope to be asked to
