Discussion Topic: Extra Credit Discussion: Overcoming Communication AnxietyExtra Credit Discussion: Overcoming Communication Anxiety
OBJECTIVE
Students will discuss the first chapters on public speaking, focusing on what helps them get in front of others and deliver cultivated information. By discussing our communication anxiety, and things that have helped us in the past, we can help each other for future presentations. As college students, there are likely many presentations in your future. And I have had students tell me that public speaking courses have helped them with leading a group of employees at work, being the lead cook in a kitchen, speaking up in one-on-one conversations and much more.
SETUP
For this discussion, you’ll assess your own communication anxiety, specifically regarding public speaking. You’ll describe your own communication anxiety, if you have it, and how you’ve tried to cope when having to present in school, at work or at family functions.
Before you begin the initial post, use this link and take the survey, write down the score and consider some of the questions it asked you that might relate to your public speaking anxiety.
And watching this video about ways to overcome communication anxiety
INITIAL POST – 6 points
(due before 11:59 p.m. Friday, November 19)
Based on your readings from chapters 9, 10 and from the end of chapter 1 in your textbook, complete the following tasks with your upcoming Speech: Tell us about your culture in mind. In addition, think about past opportunities you have had to speak publicly, and use those experiences to contribute to your discussion.
First, describe a time when you have felt nervous or anxious in a public speaking situation. For example, you might have had to give the best man speech at your brother’s wedding, or you maybe you had to give a big final presentation in your Anatomy & Physiology class last quarter. Describe how you felt and what you think caused you to feel nervous or anxious. Use your score from the survey above to help explain your nervousness – you do NOT have to share your score but you can talk about it in general terms if that gives us context about your experience with communication anxiety.
Then, explain how you have tried to keep yourself calm when speaking publicly. What do you do before, during and after a speech to keep the nerves at bay?
(For your question to your peers, please refrain from asking what they do to cope with communication anxiety, as that is one of my questions to you in your Initial Post.)
REPLIES – 3 points each
(due before 11:59 p.m., Sunday, November 21)
Respond to at least TWO peers’ Initial Posts.
After responding to the post and answering your peers’ questions, consider discussing times others have given you advice for calming communication anxiety, or the video discussed above
In addition, ask your peer a question about their experience.
REPLIES to REPLY Posts – 1 point each (max 3 points)
(due before 11p.m., Tuesday, November 23)
Respond to up to two peers’ Replies made on their own (or others) Initial Posts. Limit 2 Replies to Reply Posts.

I usually get very anxious and worry a lot about presentations no matter what it is about. I specifically remember my junior year in my Biology class giving a presentation about the evolution of the human species. Ive noticed I worry about presenting more when it is about a topic that I am not interested or confident in. I knew we had to present that day and I spent all day in every class before thinking and reviewing for this presentation. To put this in perspective this wasn’t supposed to be that big of a presentation. It was only required to be 3 minutes long with 10 slides in the powerpoint. I was very anxious all day and once I got into class as time was going by without my teacher calling my name about 30 minutes into my classmates presenting I got super nauseous and started sweating getting dizzy so I ran out of the classroom went to the bathroom and threw up. So it is safe to say that I am not a fan of presenting in front of people.
Something I try to do before presentations is not procrastinate and try to feel as confident as possible about the topic. I try to prepare very early so I don’t feel rushed about the topic.

A time that I have felt nervous about public speaking was recently. We had our end of year banquet for the football team and I had to deliver a speech for one of our award winners. I did not want to go first, however as the young buck, I had to go first. I was not extremely nervous, but I was a little tense because I did not want to mess it up.
When I know that I have to prepare a speech like that, I try not to think about it too much. For the most part, I wing it. I feel that if I am constantly overthinking it, that is when I will mess up. It may not work for others, but it works for me because I seem more genuine when I do it that way.

Purpose
This assignment is to help us think about what good group expectations might look like for us, as individuals. Now that we’ve collaborated with peers to develop the group contract further we can refine the details of our contracts and finalize them.
These contracts might serve as a starting point for future groups (bring your contract to a future project and work on it as a team to improve it and make it more appropriate for the new group or team), and help students to practice thinking about what it means to be a productive and happy group member.
While working in a group, we are always working on identity management, interpersonal communication and intercultural communication, in addition to group communication.
Outcomes
By completing this assignment, you will be able to…
Examine values, assumptions and perceptions across cultures, contexts and perspectives to develop self awareness about one’s own communication behaviors
Reflect critically and emphatically on expressions of human experience, across cultures, contexts and perspectives, integrating perception, intellect, emption and imagination.
Use supporting evidence that supports written communication
Instructions
To complete this assignment…
Review the following Scenario (NOT ACTUALLY WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR CLASS, it’s hypothetical)
(This is a scenario. Students will be working individually for the rest of the quarter. But for the purposes of this assignment, we are pretending we will be working in groups with peers.)
For the purposes of this assignment, imagine you and your (imaginary) group will be working together through the duration of the quarter to complete each quiz and the final project together. (This is only for the purposes of this activity. Students will be completing the rest of the quarter on their own, as INDIVIDUALS.)
You must create a group contract, as if you are one opinion in a group, to ensure there is group cohesion, and to minimize unnecessary disagreements throughout the rest of the quarter.
Review the following document
The University of Washington – Group (Links to an external site.) Contract (Links to an external site.)
Create a Group Contract
This contract is an agreement for the group. Students agree that they will follow these guidelines and rules to ensure the group is successful.
Use this Google Document as an template: Group Contract Template (Links to an external site.)
To save a copy of the Template: open the template, click “File”, click “Save a copy”, then save it in your Google Drive.
In the Google Document, go to the pencil in the upper right hand corner of the page and choose “Editing mode”
Answer the questions in the template with your own preferences when working as a part of a group.
Generally, you would work together as a group synchronously to brainstorm ideas and make final decisions, but here, you’re just getting a feel for what might be included in a group contract.
Consider ideas in the article, and from your chapters on Group Communication and the Additional Learning Materials, to inform your decisions.
