Week 5 September 21 st Communication 101 Memory- do not speak from memory, our class was designed for us to remember the outline of our speech not the entire speech Manuscript- you are not reading your speech. An example of someone who reads from a manuscript is the President, he has speech writers and uses Teleprompters but he still speaks naturally. Impromptu- these speeches are designed to make you speak on your feet. We have an impromptu speech next week. An example he gave us is the he uses impromptu speeches to talk to us; he hasn’t rehearsed the lectures he just talks about it. Extemporaneous- this is the goal for most of our speeches for this class. These speeches are planned and organized. They are what you would call structured spontaneity Next we looked at the model that was given to us from chapter 1 about sending and receiving information. Space-  Intimate 0-1 ½ feet o Close proximity  Personal 1 ½ - 4 feet o Close friends, family  Social 4-12 feet o Group communication  Public 12 feet and beyond o Audiences Gestures- Body, physical o Eye contact, this is the most effective use of gesturing o Facial expressions o Posture o Movement, no hands in pockets Vocal o rate, not too fast, not too slow o pitch, tone, fluctuate, communicates o volume, don’t yell, but speak loud enough to be heard o articulation, command of a language o pronunciation, practice names and the language o quality, thread tension and breathing rate Sexuality- Gender Culture Appearance Credibility Next we watched a video on body language called, “Your body language shapes who you are, Amy Cuddy.” She talks a lot of about how the power of posture can change your mood and how others perceive you. If you are standing tall, straight, and open you will be viewed as powerful. While if you are crunched together and are holding yourself especially your neck you are in a defensive state. She speaks about how someone should, “fake it ‘til you become it.” Next we watched a couple of examples of a ceremonial speech and we evaluated the speeches we watched. Our ceremonial speech is due next Wednesday as well as the impromptu speech and our second quiz.
