What is communication? -The non-verbal and verbal cues and messages sent by individuals when we exchange information. They can be intentional and unintentional. Perspective -The Receiver perceives the verbal and non-verbal behavior of another and assigns meaning. Sender `The Sender encodes a message with cues and sends it to another person. Communication Models Linear Model-Shannon and Weaver 1949 Sender sends message, message goes through channel surrounded by noise, message reaches receiver, message is decoded by receiver. Transaction Model of Communication- National Communication Association Elements of the Communication model Source-Person who creates a message Encoding-Creating, organizing and producing the message Receiver-Recipient of the message Decoding-The process of interpreting the message Feedback-An audiences’ response to a message-convey verbally or nonverbally Message-The content of the communication. Expressed verbally and nonverbally Channel-The medium through the speaker sends the message; radio, TV, etc. Noise-Any interference with the message; internal and external Shared meaning-the mutual understanding of a message between speaker and audience We are always in a state of communication. When we are asleep and tired we are communicating. Silence tells a message. Communication is always verbal and nonverbal. Even in isolation you can convey an unintentional message. Forms of Communication -Intrapersonal or Dyadic-One on One -Small Group-More than two people. Generally, the most effective group is one that has seven or less individuals. -Mass Communication-Speaker(s) are present but the audience isn’t known. -Public Speaking-Speakers(s) are present and the audience is known and present. How is Public Speaking Similar to Other Forms of Communications? Small Group and Public Speaking The people are focusing on you and you are expected to address issues and topics that’re relevant to the occasion Mass Communication and Public Speaking You need to understand your audience members and appeal to their values, like Political and Sports talk radio Dyadic Communication and Public Speaking You need to express your meaning clearly and respond properly with your conversational partners while taking responsibility for what you say. How is Public Speaking Different than other forms? -There is instantaneous feedback from the audience; written, verbal, nonverbal -The level of preparation is important. Speeches need to be planned and practiced otherwise it’ll be easy to tell. -The degrees of formality have increased in public speaking because they usual are used in formal settings Learning to Speak in Public 1.) Draw on your prior conversation skills 2.) Automatically make certain to understand the subject and adjust the level of meaning accordingly to the situation 3.) You need text in your speech as well as an Intro, Body and Conclusion. 4.) Don’t speak as you write 5.) Research from credible sources 6.) Make clear verbal transitions between subjects and parts of the speech. 7.) Develop an effective oral style 8.) Don’t impress with bug words and use simple sentences. Repeat key ideas & words.
