Watch a news program of your choice. Write down the verbal and nonverbal cues you notice from the news anchors. Using the listening skills that you learned about in this unit, write down the important points covered and the major themes (not the actual details that are covered). Also, try muting the sound on your television, and note any differences in what you notice and are able to understand. In your Discussion Board post, address the following:
How do the newscasters’ verbal and nonverbal cues affect their communication with the audience (you)?
What did you learn about your own listening skills?
How well were you able to identify important points and major themes?
How does public presentation of the news (a newscast) compare to news in written form (newspaper, news Web site)?
How will you use your new awareness of verbal and nonverbal communication in business situations?
This is not a full length paper and I will not pay as if it is one it is just a discussion board post
