Good morning, Grizzlies!
Today, we are watching videos on public speaking and presenting. We are also going to practice presenting and split into groups to discuss questions that the judges might ask at the presentation. Today is a very important day! The videos will help because they discuss some of the things we need improvements on in our public speaking. We have learned that we should apply stories to the situations. We also need to maintain eye contact with our audience. I think it's very important that we practice these skills because we want the best for ourselves and the presentation. We shouldn't care about ourselves during the presentation , but gestures and eye contact are important. What I mean about not caring that much about ourselves is that our presentation is the main thing they should be focusing on. We shouldn't get nervous about apologizing or messing up. Everyone makes mistakes and its natural to make mistakes.
We cannot let out nervousness get the best of us and overcome us. We have to conquer it and focus on how good our presentation will be. The important thing that matters is that we are speaking and participating in the presentation. Eye contact will be a huge factor that plays into our presentation. Eye contact with our audience shows honestly, trustworthy, and focus. It shows that we are focused on the audience paying attention. Our facial gestures show how the audience should react to what we are saying. In the video, it discussed on how we shouldn't be telling a tragic accident with a smile on our face. It would make the audience be confused on how to feel about the situation. We are split into our groups and we are rehearsing on what we are going to say and do in the presentation. I really hope that we have great practices and do not get nervous. I wish us the best to come.
With more to come,
Carlee from Green Grizzlies
