Today I lectured on Introductions. We spoke about the four criteria of introductions: attention-grabbers, revealing the topic, establishing credibility, and previewing the main points. We also discussed the factors of attention. Next Tuesday we will finish up the chapter with a discussion on conclusions and their qualifications.
I have really good rapport with my T/TR students and it makes teaching them a joy! I look forward to teaching them. I am trying to bring some of that enthusiasm to my Friday class. I have been talking with some of my colleagues, friends and family and have been brainstorming some good idea’s for presenting content to them.
I wrote a few weeks back about my longing for winter shorts. I have been keeping an eye out for some as I have been out and about shopping. I even considered buying a pair of regular shorts to wear now with tights since the stores are starting to put out bathing suits and shorts. But, I wasn’t entirely settled on the idea. Well, I found some! I found them packed away in my own summer clothes. I thought that I might have a pair that would work, and I did– which is why I wasn’t ready to pull the trigger on buying a pair.
Are there any trends that you wanted to participate in that you found in your own closet?
