Last week we saw a TED talk by Guy Kawaski on Enchantment. In one area of his talk, he covered some great tips on how to effectively use presentations.  This week we’ll take a look at another presentation, this time by Vanessa Van Edwards.

Did you ever why some TED talks go viral? Or why do some seem to be better than others? Are communication signals contagious? Vanessa Van Edwards reveals some very interesting insights in this area.  Take note of how she describes the use of hands and gestures that we use as well as conversation starters (and killers as well).

Think about some of the hints offered the next time you engage with others. After the video and during this week, I’d really like each of you to incorporate some of her ideas into your daily life and see if there are any changes.   These can be practical exercises of Human Relations.

Questions to answer in this week’s discussion.

1. What was the most enlightening part of the talk? What really stood out to you?

2. Have you ever done any of the conversation killers that she discussed?

3. What specific actions would you take to utilize some of her recommendations?

4. If you changed anything about yourself this week based on her talk what were some of your observations?

1) If you were the prosecutor, how would you discredit the potential testimony of Joe The Fireman?

Please remember this debate take place during the 1850s.  Before the Civil War, before Emancipation Proclamation and after Jefferson has been dead for more than 35 years.

The required work will help you.   Who will you be in the debate?   Your character does not have to be an actual historical figure. You can be, for example, journalist, politician, teacher, a domestic servant or a sharecropper. Just make sure that you ground your analysis in academic sources and you demonstrate you have done all the required work by integrating it into your debate positions.   Stay in character for your responses means if you say you are a certain name than each response should have this person’s name or that of the person your are corresponding with in each response is part of the debating.   Also no modern day history facts should be used…in this debate Lincoln is still alive…meaning discussing the Emancipation Proclamation is not appropriate but the rumor of it can be discussed…remember the Emancipation Proclamation was a gradual emancipation document because it only freed slaves in the Confederate states but allowed Union states to still continue slavery.
