    I’ll get to the reason why on Day 3. But I do like to make notes of what I hope to write. You don’t have to use complete sentences here, words will be suffice.

    annunciation and an audible voice, less nervous habits such as running my hand through my hair or examining my hands. Overall I find when giving a presentation, I do not do all of the distracting and unflattering things I shouldn’t do and find I myself doing more of the professional things I should be doing. Though I still struggle, I have learned, observed, listened, and practiced and I am well on my way to becoming a proficient and exceptional communicator. I have always been a grammar and…

    used the parallel form I believe that I had a lot of solid information and was able to oral cite my sources as well as trying to keep the audience interested. On the other hand, my delivery was not the best I could have done. I stood in the same place for most of the speech and looked at my outline a lot. In the future, I need to work on being more comfortable and moving around more when giving my speech. Also, I am going to try to not add as many words onto my outline. I feel that if I can be…

    Compared to the personal speech assignment, I felt the informative speech, in general, is a more challenging assignment. Since it basically combines a research paper and a speech, it was very time-consuming to finish all the requirement, especially it was in the midterm period. But after all, I found a way to balance the time to finish this assignment and gave a effective speech to the class. And I found myself gradually gain experience and confidence in the speech class. Based on the previous…

    The informative speech I gave on Wednesday about “GM Foods” did not go better than I expected that I could have done because I felt time pressure to organize a verbal outline as closer to written outline. On the topic “GM Foods”, my rhetoric was mainly to inform audiences about negative impact of GM foods on human health. The most difficult part of this informative speech for me is the topic selection. Going through the struggle of finding the topic of large public/audiences interest which can…

    At the start of the project, I created a Google Doc for the project outline and wrote the topic headers for it. In terms of outside research, I was the one who researched, found, and contacted Professor Susan Epstein from Hunter College to speak. This turned into a tedious process that resulted in about 20 emails being sent back and forth between her and I.

    I really did not know how to set up a speech properly. It was great to learn how to use an outline to set up a speech and use it as a guide to state my points. Previously when I spoke I would try and memorize every single thing I wanted to say which ended up setting me up for failure. The first speech in this class I ended up trying to memorize exactly what I wanted to say after I had written it all out. I then ended up reading directly off my paper, which wasn’t what I wanted to accomplish.…
