Task 6Perception is important when we give a speech, and our perceptions change frequently. For example, how did you view yourself in your first and second speeches? Do you have a different perception of yourself within your speeches now that we are in week 6? Do you feel more confident in your presentations? On-ground students, did you come to class on the first and second days and have certain perceptions about the people around you? Has that changed now that you have heard a few of their speeches?Read from your textbook “Chapter 2: Communication and Perception”Revisit your textbook “Chapter 10: Delivering a Speech”Changing your perception of others and yourself is a constant process, and it is based on interactions and experiences you have.One part of the perception process that we don’t always get in interpersonal communication is a redo. However, in this class, you do! Revision is a necessary step in the writing process, including speech writing.You have now received feedback from your instructor on 5 speeches. Take the feedback he or she has given you along the way. Add that feedback to your own perceptions about your past speeches and apply them.
