Video Response. Go to youtube or a similar website and find a formal- non fiction speech on a subject youre interested in; it could be a political video, a social issue speech or something equivalent. It should contain only one person, speaking in english, and run for about 2-5 minutes. Dont choose someone because he or she is well- known so you think it’ll be easy. Actually think about subjects you might be interested in. Watch the video several times, once is never enough to be tryly critical. Think about all you’ve learned so far: perception, language, cultural implications, and nonverval communication. Mention the persons artifacts, body language, tone of voice, overall message, credibity, and any other relevant details, Dont just critique the message- critique the speaker. Incorporate all these things into a 2 page essay- roughly 500 words. As always, your essay should include an introduction, body paragraph and conclusion and your Work cited page should include the reference to where you found the video. Dont do research on the person or the speech itself, use your own knowledge- apply what you learned. Did you liked the video, presenter, message? Was his/her speech effective? Did you believe what was said and who said it? Think about credibility, authority, appearance.
