Persuasive Speaker Reflection

Amazing Essays
Throughout the entire class, I have been questioning to myself if I have enhanced as a persuasive speaker, or remained as the same person that stepped into your classroom for the first time. And to be frank with you Schilling, my actual objective for Speech 100 was to progress into a decent speaker, so that one day I could possess the same atmosphere as Henry Clay. Bearing in mind that Clay was valued as one of the greatest speakers that has walked on this earth. Likewise, Clay is considered as the great compromiser for no reason, seeing that Clay managed to resolve numerous problems that transpired from the North and South, until both factions would compromise. Therefore, I desired to attain this goal by deliberately speaking on subjects …show more content…
I will start off by saying that I would classify myself as a four, seeing that I have participated as MC for a couple of speakers, and provided feedback to my teammates, when requested. In addition, I was the only one that wrote and typed out the entire “Donald Trump Versus Hillary Clinton” response, without any form of support. As for Fernanda Saldana, I would say that I would place her at a three, since Saldana offered good remarks to Bossley’s speech; however, I believe she did not contribute as MC (correct me if I am wrong). Next, I would place Joung Hwa Lee as a three, seeing that he remained quiet a majority of the time, when we would discuss about our speeches, and I did not see him partake as MC. As for Kryd Bossley, I would say that he is a 5, seeing that he contributed as MC for the computer performance, and Bossley offered useful comments for everyone in our group. Vincent Tercero would be a 4 as well, bearing in mind that he participated as MC for several speakers, and he would also contribute whenever he had the opportunity. However, I would say that Samer Dakar would be a 2, seeing that he would not say anything during our discussions, but Dakar did help with presenting the PowerPoints. Lastly, I will not categorize Kimberly Rodriguez, because I never had the opportunity to talk, nor did I see her participate as MC. In conclusion, it was a great opportunity to be in your class Schilling, and I hope that you keep on teaching Speech

    I asked for both digital and print resources. It was easier for me to pretend not to know much about searching. Bruce didn’t recommend anything except www.bls.org which I already use and have a few issues with. There was enough dead time that I sometimes feared I had lost connection. Over 45 minutes we probably only had five minutes of active conversation.…

    Trump has no major newspapers endorsing him yet he had an hour long news program dedicated to him. While having four major endorsements Johnson is mentioned once. It is imperative we talk about Trump’s inappropriate behaviors in the past, his current demeanor, and his proposed policies, but it is also imperative we discuss those things about Hillary Clinton and anyone else running for president. In the end the media does a great disservice to our political system by ignoring third party candidates, allowing political comedy skits to blur the lines of reality and fabrication., and reporting their personal ideology instead of getting the unbiased facts to their…

    Singer then went on to speak about how he still has two kidneys, because he himself has never donated his organs before. However, Singer then concluded that Chris told him that donating his kidney was not all that amazing because by donating his kidney it extended the life of people that would amount to the same as giving 5,000 dollars to the Against Malaria Foundation. To which Singer pointed out by saying that he then didn’t feel so embarrassed about not donating his kidneys because he had given more than 5,000 dollars to the Against Malaria Foundation as well as other charities. Finally, he said “So if you're feeling bad because you still have two kidneys as well, there's a way for you to get off the hook.” (Singer, 16:57) I feel that comparison is extremely compelling because it shows that you do not have to donate that much money to save people’s lives. 5,000 dollars could just be a fancy…

    I only used empathetic feedback once, with my Mom. My pattern of “identify problems, frame problems, solve problems” may be a reflection of my analytical, scientific background. The relative prominence of directive feedback and lack of empathetic feedback may also be due to my primarily associating with men, as that style is more common in males (Young & Travis, 2012, p. 100). This is supported by the fact that the only time I used it was when conversing with another woman. By chance, my conversations did not include informational listening or critical listening, although I often use the former when in class.…

    Bruce still manages to include 497 pages of information that the hundreds of articles don’t incorporate. For starters, prior to reading this biography I had not known that Bell was rather inspired by Professor Faber’s invention (82). Many of the online articles advertise it as if Bell’s inspirations were his father, an expert in elocution, and his partially deaf mother. Bell and his father took Faber’s abandoned invention, and refined it later making it their own, that eventually contributed to the makeup of the telephone. Additionally, reading the chapter on Helen Keller was an eye opener.…

    I’ve learned from my previous health services administration core classes that one person can manage other people, but cannot show leadership at the same time. It also applies to great leaders not being able to be a successful manager simultaneously. Most people presume managing things is easier than leading people. I find this statement as a fact. For example, my current manager at the pharmacy department has held his position for about 4-5 years.…

    The mere thought 6 had the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end. That is when I looked back and thought to myself, I triumphed and created the best story of my life when I was elementary, I calmly took on the challenge of writing a report and made the greatest presentation of my life, and now I was going to use everything that I had learned throughout my life so far and create the biggest, strongest, and greatest story of all time. I chose my topic and went right to work, and combined my letters, words, and sentences just like I did in elementary, I studied my subject for a greater outcome just like I did in middle school, and now altogether I was creating the greatest story I had ever made in my life. As soon as I handed the paper to my teacher, I knew from the look on her face that I had achieved my goal.
