Wednesday my students turned in their outlines (their first big assignment) and I lectured over audience analysis and informative speeches. On Monday I noticed that my students were spending all their time frantically writing the information on the Power Point slide rather than listening to the information that I was saying. So, I opted not to use the Power Point for chapter 12: informative speeches and used the dry erase board instead. This meant that I could spoon feed them the information and write on the board the key words or phrases that I wanted them to have in their notes.
It worked but, I didn’t want to push them too far out of their comfort zone and what they’ve come to expect, so I did use the Power Point for chapter 5: audience analysis. For the first time, we were actually able to get through two chapters and have a bit of time left over. I went over the two worksheets that I assigned them for homework on Monday and I kicked off the class with a 12 question quiz over the material covered on Monday.
I hope that it is a sign that more of them read the material before class and were prepared. But, that might just be wishful thinking on my part! For class, I wore one of my new-to-me thrift store finds. I paired it with a blue button up with french cuffs and nude heels. I wore the sleeves rolled up so it didn’t look so stuffy and because its hot!
I really like pairing this blue bauble necklace with this blue dress shirt. It matches with the blue so well! But, to mix it up a little and make it different from the last time I wore this shirt, I also added another necklace. I don’t usually wear multiple necklaces, but I see a lot of other women who do and I really like the look. I liked this outfit a lot. I even got a compliment on it from one of my students who said I “looked nice.”
What do you think? Do you accessorize certain outfits with the same pieces of jewelry? Or do you tend to mix it up?
