What did I learn? Let Me Show You.

March 9, 2011 at 3:37 pm 12 comments

Today we were told to bring in a visual reflection of our speech class. Candee asked us to find a way to express what we have learned in the class by using something other than words. I knew a lot of people would do poster boards, but I wanted to be a little more creative. I brought in a fake flower that I won at Eastgate Adventures, I put it in a flower-pot that I had at my house. For support I took tissue paper and stuffed it around the bottom, this always added color. The flower was to demonstrate how I’ve grown and blossomed as a speaker.

Next, I put earrings on two of the petals and wrapped a charm bracelet around the stem. The earrings were to show how I’ve become a better listener. The charm bracelet had keys on it to show that I found the “key to my voice”, I also put an actual key in the pot to demonstrate the same thing. I placed a star flashlight in the pot as well to show that I feel more confident in front of the class and I feel a shine up  there now. The hearts on the keys and earrings are to demonstrate how much I love this class!

    Your visual was really cute & creative, I definitely liked it! You got your flower at Eastgate Adventures? That place is pretty fun! I’ve went there a couple of times. Haha, it’s like a Chuck-E-Cheese’s for older kids.

    Your visual was so cute. Speech has really taught me a lot because I am a very shy person and found a lot of good qualities in myself as well.

    Your visual was awesome Destini. Never would have thought of that. I like how you put the earrings and stuff on it. You have blossomed into a pretty little flower.
