This week has been a time of completing our study in the importance of nonverbal messages.
In order to better understand their dependence and use of nonverbal language, students worked on the following:
The class is now beginning to focus on the use of vocal variety and nonverbal communication in order to effectively speak. In order to isolate and practice this skill, each student will give a declamation that he/she has been committing to memory over the past two weeks.
This first round of speeches also begins the important process in which the class learns the procedures and expectations for running a meeting. This is essential in order to provide more speaking and leadership opportunities.
