Wow, Wow and WOW!

This week in Creative Public Speaking the kids assignment was to create an ABC conversation with the help of a partner.  Besides being just a fun activity the purpose is to show the importance of our  body language when speaking.  Albert H Mehrabian did an experiment, and suggested that when we speak

Words account for only 7%

Tone of voice accounts for 38%

Body language accounts for 55%

With this in mind it’s important to remember that we are saying so much more to our audience then the words we are speaking.  Through these creative learning activities its my hope that students will develop themselves into a more conscientious speakers.  Therefore being able to be more effective at relaying their thoughts, feelings and ideas.

Here are a couple of clips!  Enjoy!
