25 Skills and Analysis
This week we are learning to study and analyze speeches by critiquing our own speeches and our peer’s week two speeches. To help with that we’ll delve more into speech analysis. First, before posting your initial post, you’ll need to read this week’s lecture – The 25 Skills Every Speaker Must Have – by Andrew Dlugan.
For this week’s discussion you have two discussion question options but only have to post about one, but make sure you expand fully on that question.
After reading the article mentioned about 25 skills identify two or three points that really stood out to you on the list. Why did they stand out? Why are they important for public speaking? Would you look for these skills when analyzing and critiquing other speakers? Were there any points you did not consider as part of public speaking? Give us your thoughts!
Most audience members form an opinion of a speaker during the first minute of his/her speech. But how do we determine what makes a speech good… or bad? This week, we’ll look at an example of public speaking, and we’ll dissect it thoroughly. What did you like? What didn’t you like? Evaluate it multiple ways: watch the speaker’s mannerisms, gesturing, posture and eye contact. Watch a second time and critically analyze the content by seeing which skills the speaker used from our list in the article about the 25 Skills.

Understanding the Medical Record and Its Uses
An individual’s medical record is an accumulation of all healthcare related events in their life thus far. Discuss the components of the medical record. What is the purpose of the medical record? What future changes or modifications would you like to see to the medical record and why? When you respond to fellow students’ posts, do you agree or disagree with the changes/modifications they proposed and why or why not?
Please respond to the initial question by day 5 and be sure to post two additional times to peers and/or instructor by day 7. The initial post by day 5 should be 75 to 150 words, but may go longer depending on the topic. If you use any source outside of your own thoughts, you should reference that source. Include solid grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and spelling.
