I WILL PROVIDE U WITH EVERYTHING U NEED ABOUT THE CLASS FOR THIS.
There is a lot of information here. I know it is a lot to digest. Don't worry, as you will have several weeks to get the presentation ready.
You are to organize and deliver a 2-4 minute presentation on what you have learned in this class. You will turn in the presentation in the form of a video. You are required to present the information in a way that is clear, accurate and interesting.
In class discussions, we will talk about how to organize the presentation and how to deliver it effectively.
The good news is that you don’t actually have to do any outside research for this presentation. You will have to look over what you have learned in this class, think about it, and show that you understand how these topics apply to you.
The presentation should consist of 3 points:
- Overall, what did you learn about yourself in this class?
- Choose one of the following topics and talk about how it applies to you:
- If you choose listening, talk about what your listening challenges are. For example, do you use a particular type of nonlistening? Have you had people close to you tell you you need to work on your listening skills?
- If you choose defensiveness, what type of defense mechanisms do you catch yourself using? Have people around you told you that you are defensive?
- If you choose Conflict, what conflict style (or styles) do you use in particular situations? How have people around you described your approach to conflict?
- What do you need to change about yourself in order to be a more effective communicator?
You should organize the presentation in the following way:
A Attention Getter
B Social Significance
C Thesis and Preview
A What I learned About Myself
B Specific Topic and how it applies to me (Listening, Conflict or Defensiveness)
C What I need to change about myself to be a more effective communicator
A Thesis and Review
B Brief Summary
C tie back to the attention Getter
These are the main goals of this assignment:
- You will take a more in-depth look at a some communication topics from this class and specifically how they apply to your own life.
- You will learn something about your strengths and challenges as a communicator, and hopefully make a plan to improve.
- You will also develop and practice your public speaking skills. Since this course meets the Oral Communication requirement for the California State University System, you are each required to complete at least one assignment that gives you the opportunity to do some public speaking. This presentation gives you that opportunity.
Explanation & Answer

Running head: COMMUNICATION PRESENTATION
✓ Can you pause for a moment and imagine a situation where something, possibly
traumatic happened to you?
✓ How did you respond? The most common way that people respond to these kind of
situation is denial. You disallow external happenings or situations from the mind, to try
and evade the painful events.
✓ Other people choose to react differently in diverse contexts. For example some use
repression to try to forget painful memories by subconsciously trying to hide, even
though in reality, they do not disappear.
✓ This presentation is important in that, it explores the various ways in which we fail to
address a given problem by “escaping” through various ways. As such, the problem is
not solved at all, rather it is postponed, only to emerge later.
(Thesis and Preview)
✓ The aim of this presentation is to discuss several types of defense mechanisms that I
have often used, and certain that many other people find themselves using,
(What I learned about myself)
✓ This class has provided me with an insight in understanding my mind. It has equipped
me with knowledge about the working of my mind, especially in the subconscious. I
have realized that I constantly employ the use of defense mechanisms when avoiding
a painful occurrence, or trying to justify my wrong to myself. As such, I may have
hurt people during the course of discourses, unbeknownst to myself.
