Today, I briefly reviewed chapter 1 which we discussed last class before jumping in to the lecture on listening. I had each student fill out an evaluation sheet on their listening skills. This inventory allows students to see how good of a listener they are and where they have need for improvement. They almost always score low and that gives me a great segue into the importance of listening. Are you listening to me?! Just checking.
I was impressed by this groups liveliness during lecture– I have high hopes for this semester and I hope that they continue to participate at this level during class discussions.
Since we are still in the first week of class, I selected another “professional and safe” outfit. My outfit was also dictated in a large part by the weather– it is starting to feel like winter here in the northeast. That means snow, wind, and cold. That pretty much meant that pants were a must. And layers.
With that in mind, I created a suit from these two Ann Taylor pieces that I thrifted on two separate occasions! How lucky am I? I hope that someone keeps donating their Ann Taylor items to my local thrift store because I can provide a good home for them. These two items don’t exactly match, so I used a deep jewel tone to separate the two colors.
Here is another view without the blazer on.
I took these pictures before I added the final touches: purple cluster earrings, a peacock pin, and a pendant necklace. I took a picture of the complete outfit after class, but you can see that the weather really took a toll on my hair!
Tomorrow, I teach the students in my other section of Effective Speaking. It is a Friday only class so this will be the first meeting for them. I also teach about twice as long since we only meet once a week. Please visit my blog again to see what I wear to that class and the other finds on my recent thrifting trip.
