Nonverbal communication happens even when you are sitting at your desk. What do you feel you communicated in class this week (through your nonverbal communication)? Was this intentional? What are you communicating today with your attire? Was this intentional? How do each impact others’ perceptions of you?
Have a conversation with someone about any topic. Record yourself. Review the video. Evaluate your use of nonverbal communication. What messages were you trying to convey? Did you communicate what you wanted? Were you surprised? Must factor in textbook terminology; minimum of 2 paragraphs—1 st, explain nonverbals; 2 nd, evaluate nonverbals If you don’t have a camera phone, ask the person to evaluate your nonverbal communication (after your conversation). For example, ask: Was I supportive? Was I accommodating?
