Discussion Board 2: Verbal and Nonverbal Messages

Discussion Board 2: Verbal and Nonverbal Messages

In this class, you learn about how to create a strong verbal message and how to create a strong nonverbal message. Please describe some of your nonverbal habits (use the categories in the textbook) that you feel could interfere with, or enhance, your speaking assignments. If you have already recorded your first speaking assignment, you can watch your video and discuss the nonverbal behaviors that you observed yourself conducting.

In your initial post, describe in 200-250 words your nonverbal communication habits that might be assets in your next speech, and then discuss your nonverbal communication habits that might undermine your verbal message. Finally, discuss how you will address each of these habits as you prepare for your next speaking assignments. Use the vocabulary from your readings to describe these habits; you may include outside research for additional examples or explanation. Cite every outside source you use, including your readings.
