Class Tuesday 10/25/16
Today in class we had a sound glitch, so we weren’t able to watch and discuss the following videos:
Julian Treasure, “How to Talk so People Will Want to Listen” (we watched part of this in class a while back)
The goal for class was to discuss the delivery strategies illustrated by these speakers.
For Class Thursday 10/27/16
REMEMBER to meet at the intersection of Haight St. & Stanyan St. on Thursday.
If it’s raining, the ride is canceled — meet at the classroom instead. If you are not sure, text me.
For class, you have two tasks:
- Read “The Linguistics of YouTube Voice” (from The Atlantic magazine)
- Watch one video from column A and one from column B. Write a post to your blog thinking about YouTube voice — would it be a good strategy for you as a public speaker?
(For really long videos, you don’t need to watch the whole thing… just a few minutes, enough to get a sense of the delivery.)
Group A Videos:
Francesca Ramsey, “5 Tips for Being an Ally” (we watched this in class a while back)
Group B Videos:
Robin Moore, “Performance” (not really a speech so much as a… performance)
