Her transition into her conclusion was not obvious, and it did not reiterate any of the main ideas from the body. Her closing sentence “We should be getting adults to start thinking more like children”, is an ironic and powerful statement. It would have closed the speech very well, if she had slowed down when she was speaking it. It sounded like she was going to tell us more, because of the way she said the last sentence. Because of this, there was a slight awkward pause between her ending and the audiences clapping. Despite the weird ending, I could tell the audience really enjoyed her speech. It was memorable because of the way she delivered her information, her use of visual aids, and it’s relativity to the audience. I feel the primary message was not only to inform about how children think, but also to encourage adults to be more open minded, imaginative, and creative. In other words, be more like a
speech and I agree with most of her thoughts. In her speech she talks about the
When watching Anne Milgram: Why smart statistics are key to fighting crime Ted Talks, I learned a lot of surprising information. Milgram quoted that there is about 12 million of arrest a year but only 5% of the arrest are actually violent crimes that are recognized as mala in se. The rest of the arrest are for low-level crime like drug dealing. This was very surprising to hear because I never had heard this I always thought that the people who were in jail were actually people who committed crime like murder or rape. I found this very interesting because I didn’t understand why other criminal who have created mala in se crimes are not being arrested more or their crimes. After learning about who is in jail, Milgram went onto discuss how she
This Tedx talk was by Ron Espiritu, an educator of ethnic, Chicano and African American studies for high school students in south Los Angeles. He has found that ethnic studies is empowering, liberating and transformative for young people. Ron talks about researchers finding that ethnic studies has positive academic and social results for students of all races and ethnic backgrounds. He talks about his grandmother being forced to wear a sign on her chest saying she won't speak Spanish. I never knew that schools were against different languages to this extent. I thought it was acceptable to speak different languages, I was very wrong. Ron goes on to talk about his mother who used her mother as an inspiration. He talks about his mother becoming
Slaker’s speech was very informative and extremely effective. At the beginning of the speech, Slaker made some jokes about one of Bethany’s current professors and showed her audience pictures of her time at Bethany. By doing those things, Slaker made herself seem more relatable to her audience, who was mostly faculty and students of Bethany. Another way Slaker made her speech
Shirley Chisholm's speech is effective because of her use of logical flow of ideas, persuasive techniques, credible sources, and counter-arguments.
Dr. Hart was a very timely speaker. She engaged in the audience and really got the crowd involved. Everyone had a chance to participate and actually talk to the speaker and answer questions out loud. Dr. Hart was also funny; this made the audience feel comfortable and included in the conversation. By presenting these different forms of speaking, Dr. Hart eased the audience and the timing felt just right.
She used a stern yet eye opening tone throughout the whole speech. The was Quindlen worded siren line made it very apparent that she is trying to spark change. She was stern to get the point across and make people believe she knows what she is talking about and not some random person who doesn't know what they are talking about. The way she described the reason for change was very unique because everyone is always talking about change yet never had an solid ideas on how to do it. Quindlen did, she defined the issue then came up with a solution, I believe that this a big first step in her
She spoke very clearly and her tone was very easy for me to understand and listen. She put many of the facts she spoke about into situations that her audience could better understand, which made it easier to follow along and comprehend. This also made it seem like more of a conversation instead of just a speech. Because she was familiar with her speech, she hardly relied on her notes during delivery and made good eye contact throughout.
Once again his overall posture and confident level was excellent. The speaker shows passion for the subject he is speaking on from the hand movements when he speaks on poverty and domestic abuse as being trivial (a means to an end). The speakers volume was just right he spoke high enough for the back of the room could here, and the speech was easy to understand. When given a speech a speaker should consider his audience in the wording of his speech, is he giving a speech to children for educational purposes or a group of college students, this is call no one left behind so the entire audience is on track.
Similarly, the idea of an artificially constructed version of reality is also evident in the context of our time through social media. The YouTube video “Are you living an Insta lie?” explores how Instagram users post a different “version of reality”. Viewers on Instagram interpret the posts literally, without imagining what effort was made to edit the photo, providing only one version of reality. For example, the image of the girl laying on her bed with the quote “#woke up like this”, when taken literally, shows she woke up looking fresh and perfect. However, the video shows us that she washes her face, brushes her hair and applies make up, clearly revealing one message to the audience that is very different to her reality. The TED Talk ‘Looks aren’t everything, believe me, I’m a model’ by Cameron Russel also exposes the different versions of reality manipulated in the modelling industry. The juxtaposition of the image of the attractive young women posing in her bikini and Cameron’s explanation “this is the first time I ever wore a bikini, I was only a young girl" further highlights the constructed reality we live in, in contemporary society. Through the
If she had added more supporting evidence and counterarguments, I believe that it would have been a stronger speech.
Ruby organized her speech in a very interesting and unique manner. I found a combination of a topical organizational pattern and a problem solution pattern. The introduction of her speech was very strong. She captivated the audience with a personal story that she made even more interesting with many details. She went on
The ted talk “The Linguistic Genius of Babies” by Kuhl (2010) tells about babies are genius on language learning, and shows some results of research as proof of this idea. The article “Learning a Language as an Adult” by Pakenham, McEntire, and Williams (2013) shows an idea about the “critical period hypothesis”, children during this period learn much better than people older than this age, especially in pronunciation, because their brain activities are different than adults during this time. Personally, I totally believe the idea of children younger learn better, because the scientific research and data are shown to audiences, and they are persuasive enough. And I do see proof in my life, like four of my Korean friends who came China around
