In this module, you have learned about the importance of body language and vocal inflection in public speaking. In this video journal activity, you will examine a video to identify poor nonverbal practices. Use this opportunity to practice public speaking and apply the best practices you have learned. Please note that your Bongo submission is only viewable by your instructor.

Watch this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0M1_kAK71s) of a politician asking for his partys nomination: Speech Bad Example (0:44). Then, in a 1- to 2-minute video journal, discuss examples of poor nonverbal and verbal communication techniques you identified in the video. Also, suggest the public speaking best practices that the speaker should have utilized, and offer recommendations on how to further develop better body language and vocal inflection when giving presentations.

Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:

Communication Techniques: Describe the poor verbal and nonverbal public speaking techniques you observed in the video.
Best Practices: Describe the best practices for public speaking that the speaker should have followed. Refer to your module resources, and cite them where required.
Delivery: Demonstrate best practices when recording and presenting your video journal. Use appropriate body language, tone, vocalized pauses, and eye contact with your audience (or in this case, camera) as you record your video journal.
