I think that having an audience and thinking of other people laughing at your fail is one of the biggest thing that is stoping me to be a good speaker.
I think that I can start with talking in front of the camera before people because if it is camera it will be easier than actually speaking in front of others. Then as I get used to it I can start having people watch me and get used to that.
They are mental barriers that I can take down if I take more time and do more speeches.
Our class have done a summative assessment on speeches. I have talked about green tea and how it affects well on human body. I think my speech was good but had points that could have improved more. I think I did well on creating the speech and researching for the details. However I could have improved on talking more smoothly and remembering some of the parts so I can look up.
I think I can use persuasive speeches on job interviews or to get someone to listen to you. If I am in a job interview, I will have to talk about my self and why I want the job. The part where I would be explaining why I want the job will be very hard if I can’t persuade anyone with my speeches.
I think it is useful to know how to structure my speech because in my life I will be making a speech and it will be VERY important for me to be able to write a persuasive speech. It is important to present my speech well because I will need to present more speeches if I want to be a good leader or to be a person who talks with other people.
I think we did an ok job for our elevator scene. However I think we have to work harder on the realistic parts. For example when the elevator stops, people on my group or I might try to open the door or press a yellow call button on the elevator. Also I think it will be better to add a part where one person talks with the person that helps with elevator emergency and maybe Nerd (Kaz) can be fixing the elevator.
