10 minutes into skills practice: 

Within the first 10 minutes of skills practice, I was able to complete a reading unit on compass learning. The unit was based around the fact that a simple word choice/sentence structure can make a big difference in the story you are writing. It also allowed me to show how synonyms can make a difference for a sentence and what you are trying to say.

10 more minutes into skills practice:

For the next 10 minutes, I learned how readers and listeners like to relate to what the writer/speaker is saying. How the word choice they use, can make all the difference to the person reading/ listening to what they have to say. Also establishing credibility can make a  big difference as well (a.k.a telling personal stories).


President Roosevelt and the fire side chats: During the time of the Great Depression, most people received their news from the radio. President Roosevelt’s introductions clearly communicated his agenda, grabbing the listener’s intention. Roosevelt often told personal stories to connect with his listeners and establish credibility.
