When I was told I had to take Speech for my Associates degree I was outraged. Not only had I taken a speech class before, but I was exposed to multiple speech competitions in middle school. I did not see why it was necessary for me go through this class. I knew how to talk to people, I could write a speech in my sleep, and reciting information to others was something I believed I was efficient with. I was very wrong. Not only did this speech class teach me how to be a better speaker, it also exposed me to social concepts I had never thought about before. By taking this class, I learned more about society and how perception and language affects it, I learned how to work in a group setting, and learned more about myself as a person. Before taking this class, I was very ignorant to how perception affect us and how we interact with others. The concept of self-concept, language complexity, and cocultures were something I was oblivious to before this class. It baffles me how our society function and how simple things like nonverbal cues affects how we interpret others and how we are interpreted. One of the most interesting discussions concerning society and perception was the topic of saying “you guys.” I never thought about how it could be considered sexist or offensive in anyway. I just saw it as a way to address a large group of people, but it is very damaging to our society. (Adler, Rodman, & du Pre, 2014) Prior to taking this class, I believed I knew how group projects

I am an active member of my school and community. At school I feel that i've gained the respect of my peers being elected as Student Council representative for the past four years. I have also been elected the treasurer of the choir, and secretary of the band. I am part of the Ross Middle School bucket drumming group and have been casted as part of the school theatre’s annual play. After school on Wednesdays I assist Ms. Rullman in helping students with homework and enhancing study methods. I am currently participating in science olympiad and have in the past. I am also an anchor on the popular Good Morning Ross Middle School weekly news show. In addition, I have been a part of National Junior Honor Society which takes part in service projects
As a diverse student, in a very low income community I have always been known to standing up for others, as well as for myself. Having this natural drive i found myself taking a huge role in our high school Beta Club. As a natural leader, I was challenged with the opportunity to represent our high school’s Beta Club Chapter while running for North Carolina Beta Secretary. Although I felt experienced as a leader, I was really nervous to get up in front of all of North Carolina and give a speech at the Beta Club convention. Although I was nervous, I opened my mouth, and the words just began to come out. My fears went away, and I addressed everyone on topics of educational improvements and opportunities for all students to succeed. I used this
“What! No! Why!?” Without a doubt, these words have been exalted by many candidates during the competitive transfer process at UW-Madison. Although I was denied transfer admission, I cannot but respect the decision I was given. However, I believe that UW-Madison has not seen the full extent of me. I would like to provide this letter with additional merit to display that I am stronger than earlier evidenced in my Fall of 2016 application.
The General Studies Degree was one of the best decisions I have made in my life. I was able to take courses, which appealed to me, and some that were very different and challenging. There were few classes that I did not enjoy, one of which was Speech. I actually had to take this course twice, of course. The first time I took this course was in Fall of 2014. Writing the speeches and preparing myself was the easiest part of the whole semester and course. However, once standing in front of 25 strangers and speaking on a topic I thought I knew inside out, but kept choking on, was terrifying. I made it all the way through the semester and then failed to make
Hey Coach, Iowa State is going great. The classes are alright, but I enjoy going to most of them. I am taking advantage of the facilities and I am back in the weight room. All the techniques and lifts you taught me are really making it easier now that I am lifting without a coach. I thank you for all the time and effort you put into the lifting program so I know what I am doing here at Iowa State. The main reason that I am writing you is to share this with the seniors at North Scott High School. Particularly, the seniors who are struggling to pick the place they will be spending the next four years of their lives. It is the beginning of the school year and the seniors who already have a plan are ready to go but the seniors who don't are scared for the future. I encourage the
Happy New Year! I'm sorry for not touching base with you sooner. I've recently completed finals with Liberty University a week ago. Unfortunately, I never received your email regarding the sample lessons. However, if it's not a problem, is there a way you can resubmit it to me?
While the achievements I’ve earned are valuable, what I have learned from this process is significant. I’ve learned how to act in a professional environment and how to be a quality competitor in not just Speech, but in all my activities. Furthermore, I have acquired the ability to digest and comprehend criticism. As well as giving me the opportunity to be a leader on my team, Speech has also taught me to be a leader amongst my peers. To me, Speech is more than a place to excel in speaking, it is where I have gained knowledge and skills that will assist me in my future
Trump nomination has me eating crow. There's a lot of things I can easily point out to that might of cause Hillary chance of winning. But the damn Electrola College is a complete BS. Al Gore lost to President Bush in 2000 with the popular vote, the same way Hillary lost to Trump. Essentially every vote doesn't count. That's completely asinine! Democrats lost the House, Senate, White House and apparently the Supreme Court. Yup! we are in herd of trouble.........
Thank you very much. I am so very proud of my girls, Rachel is completing her Master’s in Nursing at ENMU this Fall, Leah will be starting her Bachelor’s this Fall at ENMU, and my plan is to complete my Bachelor’s Spring 2018 at ENMU. ( NMJC & ENMU have been good to us) My girls amaze me! When the article came out , I received a lot of comments that I must be broke having both girls in college, but the truth is since they went to a local college, stayed home, and have maintained a high GPA they have basically paid for their degrees themselves. They must take after their mom.
Attention getter: Have you watched the news lately? Even if you haven’t, you still probably have heard something about the disputes in and around Jerusalem. These disputes have been going on for centuries. Many different groups of people have fought to control Jerusalem over the years but we are going to focus on the current majority parties from today. From the information I found on CNN.com and the Jerusalem Post, I concluded that the Israelis and the Palestinians are currently fighting over who should control Jerusalem and how it should be run. The major problems between these to groups started in 1948 when the British Mandate partitioned Palestine into separate Muslim and Jewish states. Now, Palestine is majority Muslim while Israel
In response to what we have discussed thus far in Interpersonal Communication, I would like to further explore the idea of gender in the interpersonal communication arena. As was said in class, ”gender influences cultural perspectives.” Gender also influences how we view ourselves in society. On the flip side, I’ve seen how society can mold the way we label ourselves in terms of gender.
Well, this is it, the day all of us have been waiting for has finally arrived. It seems like only yesterday we were picking our noses and flicking them at innocent bystanders or yelling childish phrases like, "Liar, liar, pants on fire!" or, wait, that was yesterday. Never mind. Anyways.
Draft speech of Mrs. D. Purandeswari, MoS-HRD (HE) as Chief Guest on the occasion of the Annual Day of the Rainbow Concept School, Mahaboobnagar, A.P on 9th February, 2007 at 5.30 p.m.
In the speech “Remarks by the President in a National Address to America’s Schoolchildren” by Barack Obama, he encourages students to try hard in school because education will further their success in the future. President Obama uses the reasoning that with education students will have responsibility just like those around them to achieve high standards. Students must also try hard in school to get their work completed and not give up on their education and make going to college a goal of theirs. Students need to have responsibility, try hard on their education, and be aware that they have many educational opportunities.
