Snow day Assignment for Feb 2, 2011 (8:30 class only)

Still trying to come up with a topic for your informative speech? You might try wordle. Type in your ideas for topics. Repeat those topics you like most.

Each time you click “randomize” the shape, color and placement of the words change, giving you different “view” and perhaps clarifying your topic. Here’s my topic wordle. Send me your wordle or the url address and I’ll post it here on our blog.


I like this video about storytelling by Nancy Duarte. She’s the author of “Resonate: Present Visual Stories that Transform Audiences”

Including Stories in Communication


Speaking of courage and creativity, I encourage you to watch Ken Robinson’s presentation.  He is a fabulous presenter. And, his message reminds us that our reluctance  (and fear) of speaking might be a result of our education.   Can we recover our creativity and willingness to ‘give it a go?’


I’ll see you on Monday, Feb 7.  Bring the notecards for your informative speech.
