Reflection Essay With completing this course, I was able to benefit from a variety of newthings from the class, as well as refresh my memory on things that I alreadyknew, just needed a reminder about. The biggest hurdle in the class for me was time management.
I don’t count much time so completingassignments on time was and still is a challenge for me. With obstacles came hidden strengths Idiscovered about myself. I’ve neverthought of myself as a leader, but because the class used group thinking inmore than one occasion, I found that I am a good leader.
I communicate my ideas to the group whiletrying to balance the ideas of others so the group can come to an agreed upondecision. Obviously, this can benefit meno matter what career I decide to go into, because the ability to take controlof a situation. Another surprised for mewas be able to think a write a poem, this was my first time and put my heart onit and feel very proud of myself. The highlights of the course for me would probably be the creativeportion of the persuasive paper and speech.
I enjoy expressing myself through talking to the audience so it was funto be able to take my thoughts and feelings and turn them into a speech. As for other highlights and insights, I can’t really think of any. To be honest, this class give a very positiveaddition to my knowledge and a very professional use for my career in thefuture. Like I mentioned before, it is very difficult to persuade my mind tothink differently than it already does.
I was already aware of most of theissues we discussed in class, such as the persuasive speech, Pathos, Ethos, Poetryetc. about myself, I’m Glad I took this class because as I thought in the beginningit was a wasted of time now I have a different perspective of the class now I knowthat everything learn during this class is very much need thru my personallife, career life and thought everything I do in life. Thank you for everything learn on publicspeaking.
