hi its ohad lobel from your speech class sorry didn't show up yesterday it was a last min decision i would have called you otherwise just wanted to update you and ill be back monday ready for my speech
Giving my first "real world" presentation tomorrow on Tourette Syndrome. I prepared for it by using the same worksheet I had used countless times during your speech class. Thank you again Professor for giving me the skills to properly form a speech so that I am able to do so in a confident and professional manner.
Thanks Proffesor Green for your encoraging and complimentary words regarding the Informative Speech on Bullying I find this blog to be a great community of information and feedback and thank you for that as well . I thouroughly enjoyed the Rodney Atkins/Joel video as well we did during class .....it was a very intersting exercise .
oh wow! awesome video!great song! If i were to do that at Synagogue they would throw me out, lol! I used to go to school in Israel and I hung out a lot in Aish, so a lot of those areas I'm familiar with. Also, I heard the Macabeats (a jewish music group) put out a Rosh Hashana song as well.
Peace & Blessing to Mr.Green. I enjoy all content on this blog/site of yours. Many useful information to utilize. The Chosen UZN Stop the Violence Community Jams Bx Event on Jan. 15, 2011 went well. We had radio & News12 coverage. There are some more events that I am working on & you & everyone are so gladly invited. I will keep you posted. Thank you.
Thank you, professor. I'm sure I will gain great benefits from all materials available and shared here. Last semester I taught for the first time public speaking; my course relied heavily on the books and videos written by Sellnow, Zerefsky, and Verderber. I found some of the videos of speeches given by the students in their classes were useful but a bit out of date. This probably because I could only find the old editions from my university library. Next month, I will have to give a training on drafting and making speech at the basic level to teachers from private schools. I was thinking of starting from a narrative speech, but I still can't find an appropriate and good sample of the speech yet. I believe I can find some here.
Thanks a lot for the video in which I ve discovered Chadly and his fresh stories.Teachers have to try his excellent method of holding the audience and pulling out a pack of laughter from them!
I teach at Texas A&M International University where I encounter language-learning situations each day. Your Web site is a welcome light in the dark sea of misunderstanding each language learner encounters, and I hope to bridge more gaps through services like yours.
Please let me know if I can be of any assistance, too.
The figure of "Catalina," comes up in a Venezulean folk-tale of the fool, "Juan Chiquitico," as I've recorded it in Spanish, here, and is a jack-tale on how "Little John," keeps Catalina, the figure of death, in abeyance. It's a delightful tale that when I told it to my orthodox students reminded them of the root for the word, Catalina, (the character's name in Spanish.)
I appreciate your taking the time to look up this information, it makes the tale even more interesting!
