Video for interpersonal communication: nonverbal

Episode description

Simpsons: Season 7, episode 14

This whole episode would be a nice example of nonverbal communication if you have the time. I use a clip from the first scene where Marge wears her new Chanel suit to the gas station. The people she meets there, from those who know her well to those who barely know her, treat her differently because of the clothes she is wearing. It is a nice  example of nonverbal communication through personal artifacts. I ask a student who has seen the episode to describe what happens in the end.

About teachingpublicspeaking

I believe public speaking can go from most dreaded class to favorite class. I'm a former public speaking college instructor who spent years seeking out activities, assignments and examples to make the class interactive as well as educational -- they are collected here. I welcome suggestions for additions.
